AFC West notes

In a radio interview, Denver running back Willis McGahee called his new quarterback, Peyton Manning, a “guru.”

  • Starting Oakland receiver Denarius Moore was held out practice with lingering hamstring issues. It is just a precaution and he should be fine for the long term.

  • The Chiefs are off on Wednesday and there haven’t been any updates on the leg injury that caused star cornerback Brandon Flowers to be carted off during Tuesday night’s practice. The Kansas City Star speculated that it didn’t appear to be a long-term injury.

  • After tweaking his hamstring Tuesday, backup Oakland running back Mike Goodson was back on the field Wednesday.

  • As expected, San Diego coach Norv Turner has named Tyronne Green the starter at left guard. He has long been expected to be the replacement for the retired Kris Dielman.
