Chiefs Tight End Moeaki Comes Off PUP List

Sports

August 9th, 2011 by Jim Field

     ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) – Tight end Tony Moeaki has been removed from the Kansas City Chiefs’ physically unable to perform list and participated in their morning walkthrough Monday.  The second-year player from Iowa ran some routes for the first time since he was placed on the PUP list at the beginning of training camp. The Chiefs have not said what was wrong with Moeaki, but he spent more than a week watching from the sidelines at Missouri Western State University.  Moeaki caught 47 passes for 556 yards and three touchdowns his rookie season.  Wide receiver Jonathan Baldwin, the Chiefs’ first-round draft pick, did some light running Monday. He had not practiced since Thursday’s walkthrough.  Defensive end Glenn Dorsey sat out for the third straight day since he was carted off the practice field last Thursday with an
undisclosed injury.

Ex-Ravens McClain, Gregg Welcomed to Kansas City

Sports

August 9th, 2011 by Jim Field

     ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) – Todd Haley remembers watching Kelly Gregg stuff the Kansas City Chiefs’ vaunted rush attack. He has vivid memories of punishing fullback Le’Ron McClain clearing the way for Ray Rice.  So when both players became available during free agency, the Kansas City head coach was on board with signing them. And now,
just a few short months after helping the Baltimore Ravens eliminate the Chiefs from the playoffs, the veteran duo is being counted on to help them get back.  McClain, a two-time Pro Bowl fullback, says he’s coming in to do anything he can to help the team win.  That’s precisely the attitude that Haley expects.

Legendary Coach Paterno Injured

Sports

August 9th, 2011 by Jim Field

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) – Penn State says coach Joe Paterno is undergoing medical tests on his right arm and hip at a hospital after a player ran into him during practice on Sunday. The school announced yesterday that Paterno walked away from the collision with a receiver who was running a route. The 84-year-old says he’s “fine” and expects to be back on the practice field “soon.”  Dr. Wayne Sebastianelli, Penn State director of athletic medicine, said in a statement that it doesn’t appear surgery will be required. The school said Paterno could be released in the next 24 hours.  A person familiar with the team says doctors are evaluating Paterno’s shoulder and pelvis but there is no firm diagnosis on the extent of the injuries.  Paterno is entering his 46th season as Penn State’s head coach and is the winningest coach in the history of major college football with 401 victories.
