Andy Reid said he's not inclined to change his usual way of playing the starters into the second half of the third preseason game, which for the Chiefs is Saturday night against the 49ers at Arrowhead Stadium. “I've been doing this for a number of years (and) I've had success doing it this way,'' Reid said. “I'm not complacent. That can be a sign of complacency. That's not what I'm saying. It's a physical game.'' The Chiefs had several players knocked out of Saturday night's loss to the Steelers, the most significant being safety Tyrann Mathieu. But Reid said Mathieu probably would have stayed in the lineup had it been a regular season game. The Chiefs may have lost one of their best special teams players, reserve wide receiver Marcus Kemp, for an extended period because of a knee injury. “We probably came out of this with one or two guys that are hurt for the duration,'' Reid said. “But that happens.''
