Chiefs still waiting on Brandon Flowers' foot

By Bill Williamson

Kansas City coach Romeo Crennel said standout cornerback Brandon Flowers is consulting physicians because his bruised foot injury is lingering. Flowers hasn't  practiced since July 31. Initially, Crennel said he didn’t think the injury was serious.

Crennel said despite the fact that the injury is taking time to heal, it doesn’t “necessarily” mean the injury is worse than expected.

“He’s still working to try to get better,” Crennel said. “I saw him this morning, and he’s doing all that he can. We’re sending him to the doctors and we’re trying different things to try and get it better. He’s getting better slowly, not fast enough, but all we can do is kind of hang on and see what happens … It’s just one of those things that they haven’t been able to pin point exactly why he’s not getting better as fast as we want him to get better.”
