Chiefs will miss Page

Posted by ESPN.com’s Bill Williamson

Page The Chiefs will miss safety Jarrad Page, who was put on injured reserve list Wednesday, ending his season.

Page was one of the Chiefs’ best playmakers and was a solid starter. Yes, Kansas City benched him last week and inserted Jon McGraw after McGraw played well when Page was out with an injury. But for the long run, Page is the player who has more upside.

Though the Chiefs will be without Page for the rest of the season, there is a potential silver lining here. The injury could allow second-year player DaJuan Morgan a chance to salvage his season.

Morgan had a promising rookie year but the new regime has not been enamored with him. He has just four tackles this season, but he's a talented player with hitting ability.

He may be forced into some playing time. Many folks around the league think Morgan has a chance to be a good player, so perhaps he will flourish if given the opportunity.
