--SS Greg Wesley sustained a back injury that will bear watching this week. The injury doesn't appear severe, coach Dick Vermeil said Monday, but Wesley could be heard bemoaning his bad luck after the game.
--DE Vonnie Holliday recorded the only Kansas City sack against Houston, and it
came late in the game with the outcome long decided. That was disappointing for
a Chiefs front four that had put excellent pressure on quarterbacks in KC's
first two wins. Especially considering that Houston QB David Carr had been
sacked five times the week before in a loss in New Orleans.
Trent Green's touchdown to interception ratio -- three TDs against five picks --
is one of the few dark clouds on the Chiefs' otherwise bright offensive horizon.
Green's first pick against Houston, a costly red-zone play from his own 22,
might be written off because his arm was hit on release. But he can't continue
to make turnovers in this key five-game stretch that includes road games at
Baltimore, Green Bay and Oakland and home games with Denver and
--WR Eddie Kennison was feeling the post-game effects
of a mild ankle sprain that he incurred before coming back to catch a 15-yard TD
pass from Trent Green in the second half of the Houston romp.
--FS Jerome Woods gave the Chiefs a scare when he went down with a leg injury,
described as a right knee contusion, early in the third quarter against Houston.
But he came back to force a fumble that set up a short Kansas City TD drive, and
said afterward that he was not seriously injured.
