Cowtown Rundown: Kansas City Sports News 8/17

Here's your daily dose of Kansas City sports news...

Whitlock leaving the KC Star

When talking about sports coverage in Kansas City, you always include the KC Star's Jason Whitlock.

That era came to an end this morning when the Star announced Whitlock was leaving "to pursue other interests."

It's a major blow to the Kansas City sports reading community as Whitlock, whether you hated him or loved him, always provided a unique perspective on things. He was able to call out the local teams like no one could.

Not a good day for Kansas City.

Royals move from off day, prepare to face Indians

The Royals will face the Indians on Tuesday night after an off day. They're coming off of a four-game split with the Yankees.

Zack Greinke will take the mound and try to get his 8th win of the season.

Chiefs tweak offensive line in training camp

The Chiefs tweaked a few parts of the offensive line on Monday afternoon's practice.

  • Guard Ryan Lilja sat out
  • Center Rudy Niswanger took his spot at right guard
  • Casey Wiegmann ran with the first team at center

There are a few banged up offensive linemen so the changes appear to be temporary.

Changes at WR for Mizzou depth chart

Because of injuries and good and not so good performances through the first week and a half of camp, Mizzou has tweaked their receivers depth chart.

Redshirt freshman Jaleel Clark moved up to even with junior Wes Kemp at the Z receiver position. Also, redshirt freshman L’Damian Washington vaulted ahead of sophomore Rolandis Woodland as the starter at the X receiver spot, a move not reflected on the depth chart but confirmed by Chad Moller, MU assistant athletic director for media relations.

WR Jerrell Jackson is injured and likely to miss at least the first game of the season so that's the big reason for the moves.
