Chiefs Shaun Smith Saves 10 Grand
Tyson Jackson will be back in the Chiefs lineup this Sunday against Jacksonville, but also in uniform for the Chiefs at D-Line is a fresh face. Atiyyah Ellison was signed this week by the Chiefs. Ellison is a graduate of Missouri, and played last year with the Jaguars. He takes the roster spot of Alex Magee, who was trade to Tampa Bay earlier in the week. Look for Ellison to see limited action with Jackson back in play.
Wide Receiver Chris Chambers will also be back in action for the Chiefs this Sunday. Chambers missed last week's game against the Texans with a finger injury. Terrence Copper was largely ineffective as a replacement for Chambers. Hopefully he can bring some added help to the Chiefs passing game.
The Chiefs take on the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday at Noon at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City. Televised on CBS.

Chiefs Shaun Smith Fined by NFL; Royals on Late Season Tear
How about your Kansas City Royals. They are in the midst of one of their patented end of the season runs that does nothing but provide false hope for next season. They have won four of their last five (against two of the best teams in the League) and taken the Rays out of first in the American League East. Last night, Bruce Chen, pitched his first complete game shutout in a 12-year Major League Career. Chen took his season record to 12-7, the best on the Royals pitching staff. His ERA is 4.17 - the same as Zach Grienke's. Is Bruce Chen our new ace? God it sucks to be a Royals fan.

Browns Center Accuses Chief Defender of Hitting Below the Belt
Smith has denied any wrong doing, however the play ended up having big consequences for the Browns. Mack claims he was so irrate after the play, he commited a personal foul on Chiefs Linebacker Derrick Johnson. The penalty led to a long field goal attempt for Browns kicker Phil Dawson, who missed what may have been a game-winning kick.
Smith played for the Browns the past two seasons before the team cut him in the offseason, so he may have had a little extra motivation to get back at his former team. The Browns may only have themselves to blame for his antics; this article mentions that NFL players accuse the Browns of the most crotch-grabbing and eye-poking in the NFL. Mack is simply getting the same treatment that Brown's opponents have been receiving for the past few seasons.
The bottom line is that the NFL is a dirty game, and things like this happen on the field all the time. Smith is not mentioned as one of the dirtiest players in the NFL, and did something that the Browns have become notorious for. Maybe in the future Mack should just wear a bigger cup.
