Chiefs’ Charles back at practice with bruised quad

Sports

September 12th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Pro Bowl running back Jamaal Charles was back at practice Thursday after missing the previous day’s work out with a bruised thigh muscle sustained in last week’s win over Jacksonville. Charles did participate in a walkthrough Wednesday morning, after which Chiefs coach Andy Reid said that he expected Charles to be OK for Sunday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Charles had already run for 77 yards and a touchdown against the Jaguars before hurting his quad while getting tackled on the first series of the third quarter. He briefly went to the locker room, and then returned to the field before leaving the game for good.

Cyrus Gray and Knile Davis split carries in Charles’ absence.

Cowboys, Chiefs renewing rivalry at Arrowhead

Sports

September 12th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — One of the first things Cowboys owner Jerry Jones did when he awoke Wednesday was to take a good look at the little wooden trophy topped by an odd street sign sitting among the many awards and memorabilia in his Dallas-area home. It’s called the “Preston Road Trophy,” dreamed up by his longtime friend and the late Chiefs owner Lamar Hunt, and named after the street on which they once lived just 300 yards apart.

Ever since the late-1990s, the trophy has been presented to the winning side on the rare occasions that Dallas plays Kansas City. Jones has had the trophy since 2005. Hunt’s son, current Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt, called it “the smallest and ugliest trophy in sports,” and one he wants to win badly on Sunday.

Chiefs’ Charles expected to play Sunday vs Cowboys

Sports

September 12th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles is expected to be available for Sunday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys after bruising his quad in last weekend’s win at Jacksonville. Charles ran for 77 yards and a touchdown before hurting his quad in the second half of a 28-2 rout of the Jaguars. He went to the locker room, then returned to the field for one play, before coach Andy Reid decided to give him the rest of the afternoon off.

Reid said that Charles participated in a walkthrough Wednesday morning and he “might do a little bit” during the Chiefs’ afternoon practice. Reid said that “we’re just taking it slow, but I think he’ll be OK for the game.” Charles missed time in the preseason with a strained foot.

Cardinals C Molina out because of family situation

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina is not available against the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday night because of what St. Louis manager Mike Matheny called “a family situation.” Molina and his brother, assistant hitting coach Bengie Molina, were not at the stadium at the start of the game.

Yadier Molina is hitting .318 with 11 home runs and 65 RBIs in 120 games. Matheny did not indicate when Molina will return.

Adams’ homer lifts Cardinals over Brewers

Sports

September 12th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Matt Adams had a two-run home run and the Cardinals broke open a tight game with four in the eighth to beat the Milwaukee Brewers 5-1 on Wednesday night. The Cardinals won their fifth consecutive game to maintain a one-game lead over Pittsburgh and a three-game advantage on Cincinnati in the NL Central. The Pirates finished a three-game sweep at Texas and the Reds knocked off the Chicago Cubs earlier in the day. Milwaukee has lost three of five.

Brandon Kintzler gave up three runs on two hits and a walk while only getting two outs. Carlos Beltran’s sacrifice fly off Michael Gonzalez scored Matt Carpenter to give the Cardinals a 2-1 lead. An error by catcher Jonathan Lucroy allowed Jon Jay to score and Adams followed with his 12th homer of the season. Trevor Rosenthal had a hitless eighth inning for the win.
