Exhale, the preseason is over.
For what it’s worth, it really wasn’t a very good preseason for the AFC West. Lots of sloppiness and way too many injuries. The story of the next week (particularly in San Diego and Kansas City) will be monitoring injuries to starters.
In the meantime, we will focus on cuts and corresponding moves. I could see all four AFC West teams making a roster addition or three after teams cut down to 53 players Friday. The deadline is 9 p.m. ET, and I expect most of the teams to make their announcements around that time. We will analyze each team’s roster moves when we get them.
In other AFC West news:
After Thursday night’s game at Green Bay, Kansas City coach Romeo Crennel said that injuries to linebacker Derrick Johnson (ankle) and quarterback Brady Quinn (neck) didn’t appear to be overly serious. That is great news for a team dealing with a lot of injury issues.
Here are ESPN.com’s predictions for the 2012 season. There are some interesting AFC West thoughts included.
