Chiefs Injury Report: No big injuries after Sunday

Other than a large handful of players already on their injury report, the Kansas City Chiefs were able to stay relatively healthy during their 37-20 loss to the San Diego Chargers.

Tight end Kevin Boss, defensive end Glenn Dorsey and running back Peyton Hillis were the three biggest names to miss Sunday's game, while wide receiver Dwayne Bowe was able to get in the game despite being listed as Questionable on the injury report.

The Chiefs website's official injury report contains a fairly large laundry list of different players right now, with most of them hovering around Questionable or Probable. The majority of the players, including wide receiver Dexter McCluster and defensive back Kendrick Lewis, participated at least some of the time in Kansas City's final practice before Sunday's game. Most of the players on the list will likely have improved statuses before Kansas City's next game on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens.

Chargers up big at half

Jamaal Charles' 37-yard touchdown run was about the only highlight for the Chiefs in the first half, as the Chargers lead 27-6. Besides that TD run, Kansas City had three turnovers and two punts on their first six series.

On the Chiefs' first possession following the Charles TD run, Donald Butler intercepted Matt Cassel and returned it 21 yards to the house. Cassel has struggled mightily against the Chargers D through the first two quarters, throwing for 56 yards with three picks.

Opposing QB Phillip Rivers has had a very efficient half, completing 14 of 18 passes for 175 yards and a touchdown.

Charles has been the only bright spot on what looks like a flat Kansas City roster. He has seven rushes for 46 yards and a TD. Fantasy owners will be pleased with WR Dwayne Bowe, who has six receptions for 79 yards.

Watch: Jamaal Charles goes all Barry on Chargers

The good news is that Jamaal Charles did an eerie impersonation of Barry Sanders today against the San Diego Chargers on his way to an unbelievable touchdown run. Unfortunately for the Kansas City Chiefs, the Chargers are controlling everything else early at Arrowhead. Currently down 27-6, the Chiefs only has this touchdown in their pocket so far. But at least it looks this great:

Former Chiefs tackle could return against Chargers

Former Kansas City Chiefs left tackle Jared Gaither could face his old team on Sunday as a member of the San Diego Chargers. The 6'9, 355-pound tackle, who was released by the Chiefs in the middle of 2011, returned to the Chargers' practice field on Wednesday for the first time in nearly two months, according to Bolts From The Blue.

The sixth-year player out of Maryland signed a hefty four-year, $24.6 million deal with the Chargers last season, but has spent all but what would equal one full practice dealing with back spasms and doctor's visits. The Chiefs let him go last year after he proved to be injury prone and his work ethic seemed questionable. There could be a pattern developing here.

The Chargers porous offensive line and poor pass protection is in dire need of help, and if Gaither can get himself healthy and motivated, he could be just the boost the team needs to preserve the health and sanity of quarterback Philip Rivers, who has been sacked six times in the team's first three games.

Kickoff for Sunday's game is scheduled for noon CT at Arrowhead Stadium and will be televised on CBS.

Chiefs offensive line feeling better

Jamaal Charles' monster game against the New Orleans Saints in Week 3 prompted a lot of praise across NFL circles, but few will likely have better things to say about the running back than his offensive linemen.

Charles rushed for 233 yards in leading the Kansas City Chiefs to the road victory over the Saints. His teammates praised his performance this week in comments provided by the team.

"It's a great feeling right now," offensive lineman Jon Asamoah said. "You see Jamaal have the success he did and winning the game, it was amazing. To be able to shuffle the way we did during the game and still stay consistent just shows how close of a group we are."

Ryan Lilja said the game was the pick-me-up the offensive line needed.

"We wanted to win," Lilja said. "I think we all wanted to win badly, we needed a win and we had such a bad taste in our mouths that guys were just fighting. It was all sides of the ball and it was fun to be a part of. There's not a lot of quit in these guys and you saw that the other day. Coming off two games where we got our teeth kicked in - one at home - it's a tough pill to swallow, so guys were ready to play."
