Brandon Flowers update
Chiefs cornerback Brandon Flowers, the latest member of his team to leave a game with an injury, told The Star after Sunday's 20-10 loss that he suffered an ankle injury, not a knee, against the Chargers.
He said he was hopeful that the injury was just a bad sprain but that he would undergo X-rays when he returns to Kansas City. The good news, he said, was that he was able to walk in the locker room afterward. The potential bad news is that, Flowers said, he received an injection to dull the pain but that he could still feel it.
He said if there's any way he'll be able to play next week against Minnesota, he'd be in the starting lineup.
Flowers suffered the injury after intercepting a deep pass from San Diego's Philip Rivers and returning it 50 yards.
