Chiefs Injuries Piling Up In Secondary

The Kansas City Chiefs travel to Green Bay on Thursday licking their wounds from a preseason drubbing at the hands of the Seattle Seahawks. While there is cause for concern after the performances against the Rams and Seahawks, Kansas City will likely try to avoid any serious injuries and play things safe in the final exhibition before the opener.

One area that's been hit hard by preseason injuries is the cornerback position, which suffered another blow against the Seahawks when Jalil Brown went down with a groin injury. Brown was already starting in place of the injured Brandon Flowers, who is expected to sit out Thursday and miss the entire preseason. It's now also likely that Brown will be on the shelf Thursday at Lambeau. That means Jacques Reeves will see plenty of action at corner just one day before the roster is trimmed to the final 53. Romeo Crennel thinks Reeves can hang in there at the starting spot against the Packers (via Adam Teicher of The Kansas City Star):

"Jacques made a play in the game (Friday) night on a long ball down the sideline. Now, (Terrell Owens) also caught one on him but he did make a play. He's got a little experience so I think he'll go out and do a pretty good job."

In addition to the missing corners, it's likely that Crennel will also be without wideout Terrance Copper and defensive tackle Anthony Toribio.
