"For the Broncos, Brian Dawkins (ankle) was the only player who did not participate in Wednesday's practice. The five other players listed on the injury report -- Ryan Harris (toe), LaMont Jordan (back), Kyle Orton (ankle), Eddie Royal (thigh) and Wesley Woodyard (neck) -- all had full participation in the session."

DB - Finding His Footing - Chris Gentilviso

DPP - Chiefs no long December darlings - Mike Klis
"The Chiefs have lost both of their home December games each of the past two years, and five of their past six."
