• Chiefs lose quarterback Smith for pivotal game


    KANSAS CITY: With their slim NFL playoff hopes at stake, the Kansas City Chiefs will face San Diego without quarterback Alex Smith because he has a lacerated spleen, the team announced on Friday (Saturday in Manila). Smith had practiced earlier this week after suffering the injury in the third quarter of Kansas City’s 20-12 loss to Pittsburgh. He was struck in the abdomen after a throw to Chiefs rookie receiver Albert Wilson. Chiefs trainer Rick Burkholder said that Smith felt an injury but did not consider it serious and worked out twice before having it checked.
