[Kansas City.com] The Chiefs told cornerback Eric Warfield he would be inactive for Sunday’s game against Washington at Arrowhead Stadium.
Warfield, a starter who missed the first four games because of NFL suspension, not only was unable to oust Dexter McCleon from the starting lineup, but he also couldn’t beat out nickel back Benny Sapp or dime back Dewayne Washington.
“We just don’t feel quite confident yet that he’s ready to go play corner on the Santana Moss-like players without a little bit more work,” coach Dick Vermeil said.
Warfield didn’t appear pleased with the news, though he said nothing incendiary, and said he was ready to play.
“But that’s the coach’s decision,” he said. “I’m not going to sit around and complain about it.”
