The Kansas City Chiefs report card look much better this week than last, but the Chiefs still are 0-2 on the season, after they suffered a close loss to their division rival the Denver Broncos.

Though I’m not one who believes in moral victories, I have to tip my cap to the Chiefs for showing the type of resilience and fight they needed to bounce back from a horrible week one loss to the Tennessee Titans.

The Chiefs looked so much better from week one even without Jamaal Charles, Eric Berry, Derrick Johnson, Jeff Allen and Mike DeVito. Charles left the game in the first quarter with what is now known to be an ankle injury. He had an x-ray done which came back negative, showing no signs of fractures or breaks. It has been diagnosed as a sprain, but his MRI on Monday will tell us the full extent.

If it’s a high ankle sprain, that could mean a number of things. Typically, high ankle sprains take longer to recover from as the pain is said to be more bothering than a normal sprain.h an ankle sprain as well and like Charles, we wont know the full extent until after tomorrow.

Lets hope both get back soon, as the Chiefs cannot afford to lose either one of them for an extended amount of time.

So, with a depleted roster and staring down the barrel of an 0-2 start (teams that start 0-2 only have an 11% chance of making the playoffs) the Chiefs rolled into Denver with their backs against the wall.

Though they did lose, they played pretty well and the week two Kansas City Chiefs report cards will reflect that.
