The Kansas City Chiefs came through their first preseason game remarkably unscathed against the Arizona Cardinals and head coach Romeo Crennel said today that every player who was healthy before the game will be practicing after the weekend as well. The Chiefs can only hope this continues for the next few weeks, but one player the team needs to see on the field is shutdown cornerback Brandon Flowers.
"The main guy is [Brandon] Flowers and where he is, I think his heel is getting better," said Crennel at training camp on Tuesday. "But it's not where he wants it to be yet and having to do the job that he has to do. He's rehabbing and he's working at it.
"Hopefully, one day he will come out and all of a sudden, boom, he will feel great, and he will be ready to go because that's what they tell me, sometimes those bruises will hurt for a little bit and all of a sudden, they just disappear," Crennel continued. "He's working through that. He wants to be out there, but we'll see if he can go this afternoon or not."
Flowers had 59 tackles and 4 interceptions last season.
