Thanks to a fortunate Monday Night game, CB Steven Nelson could potentially return this week to play the Broncos. I.R. rules say a player has to miss eight weeks. Nelson’s deadline to return is October 29th. If the Chiefs played on Sunday, Nelson would have to wait till week 9. His possible return comes at a time when the Chiefs seem to need it most. After getting gouged for over 400 yards against the Raiders, the secondary needs all the help it can get. Nelson’s return could definitely help the struggling Chiefs defense and provide another good cover man. Along with Nelson, the Chiefs look to get offensive linemen Mitch Morse and Laurent Duvernay-Tardif back also. The Chiefs sit at 5-2 on the season and look to improve their defensive play heading into week 8.

For the fifth time this season, the Chiefs have released CJ Spiller. The difference between this time and the previous four, is this time he actually got to play. In the game against the Raiders, Spiller played 12 snaps. Now the release either means Spiller didn’t impress enough, or that Charcandrick West is once again healthy, and the Chiefs knew Spiller was just a one-week fill in. The Chiefs are setting a new precedent with the amount they are releasing and resigning Spiller this season.
