The AFC Championship game is just a day away. We still don’t know if Chris Jones will play but we got some positive news on Friday. I still lean more towards him not playing but we’ll see. Also, we learned about the passing of David Glass. His family and friends will be in our prayers. One more thing, listen to the podcast from late Thursday when you get a chance. There is some good information in it about the Titans and what you can expect to see from them on Sunday.
Here is your daily Dr. Feelgood…
Travis Kelce has been limited at practice again this week but will play Sunday.
Chris Jones was limited at practice Friday. It was the first time he practiced since injuring his calf. Jones missed last week’s game against Houston. I am doubtful he will play on Sunday but hopefully we get some good news. He will be a game-time decision.
Frank Clark said that lining up offsides is inexcusable. Dee Ford lined up offsides in last season’s AFC Championship game and also wore #55 for the Chiefs like Clark does this season.
The Royals announced the passing of former owner David Glass. Glass passed away last week. He owned the club for 20 years. Glass took over the Royals after the passing of Ewing Kauffman. The Royals had many bad seasons and several 100-loss seasons under Glass but they also appeared in back-to-back World Series in 2014 and 2015 and won the World Series in 2015.
Sporting Kansas City signed goalkeeper Tim Melia to a contract extension through 2022.
WHAT TO WATCH
All three local schools play in the early afternoon today but the biggest game of the day is at 5 pm when Louisville travels to Durham, North Carolina to play Duke. This is a chance for us to see how much Duke has improved since they played Kansas in the season opener. If you haven’t seen Louisville play yet, this is a great opportunity to see them play in a tough environment to see just how good they are.
