Chiefs Add Starting LB To Injury Report

The Kansas City Chiefs have one of the shortest injury reports in the NFL, but it did grow by one name on Thursday.

Joining Kyle Orton, Casey Wiegmann and Demorrio Williams on the Chiefs injury report for Sunday’s game against the New York Jets is staring inside linebacker Jovan Belcher.  A shoulder injury limited Belcher on Thursday, but he is expected to be on the field in New Jersey this weekend.

The other three Chiefs kept their original designations: Orton and Wiegmann were limited participants while Williams was a full participant.

For the second day in a row, New York had 16 players on their injury report, one of the biggest in the league.  LB David Harris and CB Ellis Lankster were upgraded, but both DT Mike Devito and G Brandon Moore were still held out, putting their availability in question for Sunday.
