Chiefs' injury concerns mount

The list of injured Kansas City Chiefs keeps growing.

Coach Romeo Crennel said running back Peyton Hillis (ankle) and defensive end Glenn Dorsey (calf) will not practice Thursday. Neither player saw action against San Diego on Sunday and I think their availability for Sunday’s home game against Baltimore could be in doubt unless they turn things around quickly.

Crennel expects linebacker Derrick Johnson (groin), cornerback Brandon Flowers (foot), center Ryan Lilja (back) and receiver Jon Baldwin (hamstring) to be limited. Flowers is dealing with an aggravated foot injury he originally suffered this summer which shelved him for several weeks.

In other AFC West news:

The Saints will have some interesting fans Sunday when they host the Chargers. Will it help the Saints that suspended coach Sean Payton, among others, will be at the game? Not unless he is roaming the sideline, which he won’t be.
