Reid makes right call in resting starters

By Adam Teicher

Can't blame Andy Reid for sitting the Kansas City Chiefs' starters in Thursday night's final preseason game against Green Bay. The Chiefs, who lost an important piece in tight end Tony Moeaki to a  shoulder injury for an extended period in last week's game, had more to lose than gain by playing their starters against the Packers.

The starters received plenty of work in Pittsburgh, and it will have to last until the regular-season opener on Sept. 8 against the Jaguars in Jacksonville.
