Brandon Flowers Injury: Chiefs CB Could Be Limited Vs. Bills

On Thursday, Chiefs cornerback Brandon Flowers returned to the practice field as a full participant for the first time since suffering a bruised heel that withheld him from practice for much of August. While he has been cleared to play in Sunday's game against the Bills if he feels good enough to play, Romeo Crennel and the Chiefs coaches may not be so willing to throw Flowers in full-time.

"I think that you have to kind of temper it and know that conditioning will be a factor, and if the guy is able to play, you may have to monitor his reps," Crennel told media members on Friday. "Then, some of that will depend on how the game goes. Probably asking him to play 100 plays would not be the thing to do, but if you can mix in here and there and give him a break now and then, then maybe he can get through a game."

So, although Flower isn't 100 percent, it sure sounds like the cornerback will see the field for the first time in 2012 on Sunday against Bills.
