KC Running Back Michael Bennett.
Bennett did not play a single play Sunday.
Why? Two weeks ago, he challenged OG Will Shields to a foot race after practice, just for fun. During the race, Bennett comes up lame with a hammy. He lost the race. He also went onto IR, and has now spent two weeks in street clothes.
In last week's game vs. SF, it didn't matter.
Yesterday, vs. AZ, LJ went down near the end of the game after a vicious face mask by S Rolle and was pulled from the game.
The Chiefs then lined up inside the 5 after a 15 yard face mask penatly, and desperately needed a back to pound it in and seal the victory. Where is Bennett?
Oh yeah. He can't play because he was jacking around 2 weeks ago.
In comes Dee Brown.
Hand the ball to Brown . . . result: fumble.
Brown manages to recover <<whew>>
Next play: hand the ball to Brown . . . result: fumble.
luckily, TE Jason Dunn manages to rip it away under the pile.
Chiefs held on to the ball long enough to kick a FG.
Thanks, Bennett. Your screwing around almost cost a game yesterday.
Brown should have never been in the game. It's questionable that he even belongs on an NFL roster. So he doesn't get the goof. Bennett does.
Bennett isn't on IR. He's just been inactive.
