The Chiefs are still without two key players as Peyton Hillis and Glenn Dorsey remain limited in practice.
The Kansas City Chiefs have made a change at quarterback heading out of the bye week, yet will have to likely continue to play without a few key but injured players.
Coach Romeo Crennel announced during Monday's press conference that four players remained limited after not practicing last week:
"On the injury front, we should be relatively healthy," said Crennel. "We've got four guys who are going to be limited who hadn't been practicing, so we'll have to see how much they can do and will do; [Glenn] Dorsey being one of them, [Peyton] Hillis being the other one, Steve Maneri with his ankle, even though he did practice last week, and then Devon Wylie."
Hill has just 21 carries for 93 yards in 2012 for the Chiefs and has not played since Sept. 23 against New Orleans when he suffered an ankle injury in the third quarter. This is the first season for Hillis with the Chiefs after two seasons with the Cleveland Browns, where he rushed for over 1,700 yards and 14 touchdowns in 16 games.
Dorsey, meanwhile, was injured in that same game against the Saints and has just three tackles on the season in three games. Drafted out of LSU in 2008, Dorsey was expected to have a big year on the defensive line for the Chiefs.
