WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT
Tight end Tony Gonzalez injured his knee on one of the last plays of practice. He limped off the field when it was over, but the injury didnt appear to be serious. Edwards said the starters, with Damon Huard at quarterback, should play into the second quarter against Miami. Justin Medlock made all five of his field-goal attempts from 30, 35, 41, 47 and 55 yards.
The Chiefs had a different alignment in their nickel defense from what they had shown previously. Rookie nickel back Tyron Brackenridge was replaced by Benny Sapp, who played cornerback with Patrick Surtain shifting to nickel back. Starting tackle Alfonso Boone, who has been limited because of an injured finger, should play against the Dolphins. Safety Bernard Pollard came a long way to break up a sideline pass intended for Eddie Kennison in a 2-minute drill.
