With three days before the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs take on the Indianapolis Colts, it would appear the road team has a chance to have their starting units on both sides of the ball together for the first time all year, according to Josh Looney.
Ryan O’Callaghan and Tyson Jackson both in full pads today
Yesterday I started thinking we shouldn’t even bother expecting to get O’Callaghan back anytime soon and then today he’s back out there in full pads. We still don’t know how close he is to being able to contribute on Sunday, but this is a huge step for the Chiefs offense. O’Callaghan isn’t an All-Pro, but he’s better than Barry Richardson and would give the line a nice shot in the arm going forward.
Considering how well Shaun Smith has been playing, having Jackson back is just icing on the cake. The front seven for Kansas City has been very impressive and they’ll need to continue being so if they are going to slow down Manning & Co.
Don’t listen to the people that try to downplay Jackson’s role on this defense. No matter if he’s starting or coming in to spell Smith, Jackson will help against Indianapolis.
