He was not super-threatening with 11.8 yards per catch and a long of 34.
But the Chiefs are better with him than without him, and they will be without him on Sept. 7, when they open the season against the Tennessee Titans at Arrowhead Stadium.
He's suspended for one game for violating the NFL’s substance-abuse policy.
The Titans will also miss Dallas cornerback Orlando Scandrick in Week 2 and Indianapolis pass-rusher Robert Mathis in Week 4. Once his suspension is finalized, Cleveland receiver Josh Gordon is very likely to miss Week 5 in Tennessee.
