Glenn Dorsey is at a strange place, the crossroads of being ashamed of where he’s been but proud he made it back. The Chiefs defensive end sits in the team’s locker room, remembering the careless times that seemed so innocent — and the hard time he did as punishment. Beads of sweat are still fresh on his forehead after his latest weightlifting session. He is as fit as he’s been in years, a trim 298 pounds. Somehow, he’s done it. He worked himself into shape after Chiefs coach Todd Haley thought it would be impossible. Dorsey has adjusted to a position that his body type, experience and skills didn’t seem to match. He looks powerful, quick and dominant — if only occasionally — for a team that, months ago, thought his weaknesses might overcome his strengths.
