Chris Kuper's injury could cause a major shakeup on Denver's starting offensive line. B/R's Joe Rapolla Jr. has the breakdown.

More links for Denver tomorrow. 


Kansas City

The Chiefs will not miss Todd Haley, according to Christopher Amick of Bleacher Report. 

Romeo Crennel comes to the defense of Dontari Poe (via the Kansas City Star).

The Chiefs are giving Ricky Stanzy work with the No. 2 offense, according to Randy Covitz of the Kansas City Star. Not a huge surprise after a terrible performance from Brady Quinn in the first preseason game, but a still a surprise because Stanzi wasn't much better.


San Diego

The Chargers shouldn't rush Ryan Mathews back, according to B/R's Ryan Phillips.

According to Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union Tribune, Antoine Cason and the Chargers need a big year.

Atari Bigby and Eric Weddle are clicking in San Diego, according to Scott Bair of the North County Times.



Not only is Terrelle Pryor not ready for prime time, he's not ready for any time, according to Aaron Nagler of Bleacher Report.

The Raiders are hoping to build upon Monday's strong defensive performance and to execute the little things, according to Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle. 

Eric Gilmore of CBSSports.com gives his 53-man roster prediction.
