KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - It's only Week 3 and already the Kansas City Chiefs are so banged up they're altering their practice schedule.
The Chiefs were planning to practice in pads Wednesday, but coach Romeo Crennel said he would push that back by a day to give a lengthy list of players an extra day to heal.
Tight ends Kevin Boss and Jake O'Connell and offensive lineman Ryan Lilja are being held out of practice entirely. Dexter McCluster, Steve Breaston, Anthony Toribio, Allen Bailey, Kendrick Lewis and Jalil Brown will all be limited in practice.
Running back Jamaal Charles was expected to practice fully after dinging his reconstructed left knee in Sunday's 35-17 loss to Buffalo. He only carried six times for three yards in the game.
The Chiefs visit New Orleans on Sunday.
