AFC West notes

If Colts quarterback Peyton Manning doesn’t play Sunday, Kansas City center Casey Wiegmann will have the fourth-longest starting streak in the NFL. He has started 159 straight games.

The Chiefs claimed tackle Steve Maneri off waivers from New England. He was on the Patriots’ practice squad for much of last season. The Chiefs had been looking for depth at the position. To make room for him, Kansas City cut tight end Anthony Becht.

NFL.com has details about who is interested in the outcome of a Terrelle Pryor appeal of his five-game suspension to start the season.

San Diego punter Mike Scifres expects to benefit from an improved special teams. Scifres did his job last seasons, but others around him didn’t.

The Chargers added quarterback Drew Willy to the practice squad as a replacement for Scott Tolzien. He was claimed by San Francisco when the Chargers cut him during the weekend. The Chargers wanted to put Tolzien on the practice squad. Willy played college football at Buffalo and he’s been with the practice squads of the Ravens, Colts and Jets.
