[Kansas City.com] The Chiefs had 25 scratches in last week’s game, and that number for tonight should drop dramatically. Vermeil expects to sit 11 players.
Offensive lineman John Welbourn probably won’t play because of a stiff neck, and linebacker Kendrell Bell is doubtful. Bell started contact work this week but will probably be held as a precaution, Vermeil said.
Asked whether Bell would play if tonight was a regular-season game, Vermeil said, “I would think so. That’s what we brought him here to do.”
