Chiefs place FB Anthony Sherman on Reserve/COVID-19 list | ChiefsWire

Following the team’s Week 5 game against the Las Vegas Raiders, the Chiefs have placed fullback Anthony Sherman on the reserve/COVID-19 list according to the NFL’s official transaction report. Sherman only played two snaps on offense during the Week 5 game, but he did play 22 snaps on special teams.

Remember, this doesn’t necessarily mean that Sherman has tested positive for the virus. Players can be placed on the list after exposure to someone who has tested positive. Yahoo Sports’ Terez Paylor is reporting that Sherman is on the list due to exposure to the virus. As of this morning, the Chiefs had no new positive cases of COVID-19 from Monday’s round of testing according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.

Chiefs defense posted fewest pressures of 2020 season in Week 5 | ChiefsWire

Through the first four weeks of the 2020 NFL season, the defensive front in Kansas City had managed to pressure the quarterback at a surprising rate with 68 total pressures. They had no fewer than 14 pressures in a single game and that came in Week 4 against the Patriots, with dynamic pass-rushing defensive tackle Chris Jones on the sideline.

When the Chiefs faced the Raiders in Week 5, they struggled to generate pressure more than they had in any other game this season. On the day, they totaled just 11 pressures, with only a single pressure resulting in a sack. That play came from rookie LB Willie Gay Jr., where Raiders QB Derek Carr stepped up to flee a collapsing pocket and slid behind the line of scrimmage to avoid taking a big hit.

Chiefs will need someone to step up in Sammy Watkins absence | AA

Watkins came up injured in the Chiefs’ loss to the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 5. The offense was sluggish thereafter as the team lacked a physical option as the X receiver to be able to help move the chains and force the defense away from other primary options. The Chiefs have Demarcus Robinson and Byron Pringle who could both step into a larger role. Robinson has shown he can be a primary option in games past, but he’s failed to consistently put it all together. As for Pringle, he’s completely unproven although he’s also been buried on the team’s depth chart.

Kelechi Osemele’s season is likely finished for Kansas City Chiefs | AA

On Sunday afternoon, the Chiefs watched Osemele fall in the first quarter while pointing to his knee, indicating that he’d been injured on a non-contact play while trying to hustle and block for a scrambling Patrick Mahomes. From there, the Chiefs called out a cart, adding to the apparent seriousness of the injury.

From there, Chiefs head coach Andy Reid confirmed after the game that Osemele had actually torn tendons in both knees on the play. From that point, it was hard to imagine that Osemele would be able to suit up again in 2020, but no further details were available at that point—until Taylor’s report confirmed the team’s fears.

Patrick Mahomes reveals how far he can throw a football while teasing throw-off against Josh Allen | CBSSports

The former league MVP went on the “The Drive” in Kansas City on Monday to set the bar of how far he can throw a ball. “I’ve never seen Josh throw a football. I know how far I can throw it and I can put it out there. If he can beat how far I can throw it, he got me, but I know it’s pretty far,” Mahomes said. “I think I can get it anywhere up from 80-83 yards. Anything in that range, 75-83, is where I could throw in a throw-off.” Allen has previously said he can throw around 75-80 yards during a game.

Every NFL Team’s Biggest Early-Season Disappointment | B/R

In the Kansas City Chiefs’ first loss in more than 11 months, the defense couldn’t get off the field against the Las Vegas Raiders. In that particular loss, the entire D struggled against Derek Carr and Co., but more often than not, the run defense has been the most vulnerable unit on the Kansas City roster. Linebacker Ben Niemann has struggled, and veterans Anthony Hitchens and Damien Wilson haven’t stood out, either. Kansas City’s safeties don’t typically excel against the run, and interior defensive lineman Chris Jones is obviously much more oriented toward the pass rush.

With Watkins yet again out, and the team needing sure handed WRs with chemistry is it time we finally get to see Mahomes Best Man in a meaningful game doing something other than dancing during kneel downs?

I remember seeing Buck ONeil on one of the late shows from the 90s. Might have been Leno. Buck was awesome and the host loved him so much he wanted Buck to come back on several times.
