Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid took the podium early Monday afternoon as the team begins preparation for the Indianapolis Colts. The Chiefs host the Colts in the Divisional Round on Saturday afternoon at Arrowhead Stadium.The main topic on the minds of Chiefs fans Womens Xavier Williams Jersey , of course, is the injury statuses of some of the more important players on the roster—safety Eric Berry, right guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif running back Spencer Ware and wide receiver Sammy Watkins.“As far as the injuries go, guys are making progress,” Reid said. “Sammy Tyrann Mathieu Jersey , Eric, Spence—they’re all headed forward. Larry’s making progress.”Duvernay-Tardif returned to the practice field from injured reserve back on December 26, giving the Chiefs until January 16 to determine whether they will add him to the active roster.“We’ve got a little bit of time here with Larry to just see how he does this week,” Reid said. “Not until after this game do we have to declare anything.”Duvernay-Tardif could technically play against the Colts this weekend if the Chiefs deem him ready.After playing Weeks 15 and 16, Berry (heel) missed the Chiefs’ final game against the Oakland Raiders , Watkins (foot) has not played since Week 11 against the Los Angeles Rams and Ware (hamstring) hasn’t played since the team’s Week 14 game against the Baltimore Ravens.The Chiefs’ first official injury report comes out after practice on Tuesday, so more clarity on their statuses for the Colts should come then. In 2011, the NFL decided it was time to change overtime in the postseason. Overtime in the NFL playoffs had been sudden-death since the very first overtime game in 1958, when the Colts beat the Giants in what some call the Greatest Game Ever Played. But starting in 2011, the league decided that a field goal on the opening possession couldn’t end the game.Most people were expecting the new rule to result in both offenses getting a shot in most overtime games Womens Harrison Butker Jersey , but that hasn’t happened. Since the new rules came into being, there have been eight postseason overtimes, and five of them have ended with a touchdown on the opening drive.Those five were the Patriots over the Chiefs on Sunday, the Patriots over the Falcons in the Super Bowl two years ago, the Cardinals over the Packers in 2016 Daniel Sorensen Jersey , the Seahawks over the Packers in 2015 and the Broncos over the Steelers in 2012. The three games where both offenses saw the field were the Rams over the Saints on Sunday, the Ravens over the Broncos in 2013 and the Giants over the 49ers in 2012. Those games all ended with field goals.Just because five postseason games have ended with first-drive touchdowns, that doesn’t necessarily mean the rule isn’t working as intended: What really drove the rule change was concern that teams were getting the overtime kickoff, driving into field goal range and then playing it safe and winning with an opening-drive field goal. The rule was intended to incentivize teams to try to score touchdowns, and on that front it has succeeded.But there seems to be a groundswell of support for changing the overtime rule again. The next rule may simply be that a team cannot win on its first possession , whether scoring a touchdown or a field goal.
