Brandon Flowers Injury Update: CB 'Not Well Enough Yet'

In a press conference Tuesday, Kansas City Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel said that injured CB Brandon Flowers is not ready to get back out on the field.

"Well, (he's) not well enough to be out there. We need him out there," Crennel said. "Like I said all along, he’s trying to get out there. We’re trying to do everything we can. The doctors have been looking at him to try to figure out how we can get him out there, but we haven’t been able to do it yet. We’ll keep working at him, and he’ll keep working to try to get it done before too long."

Flowers, who is expected to play a much bigger role in the team's secondary now that Brandon Carr is in Dallas, has been in a walking boot since bruising his left heel at the end of July.

For now, the Chiefs will not look for a replacement outside of the team. "We’re always looking at that to try to see who might be available, and if there is someone that we feel like can help us, we’ll bring him in to take a look at him," Crennel said. "Most of the guys who are on the street, generally, they’re not ready to help you right now, so we’ll have to wait to see how things go."
