Chiefs still emphasize preseason games despite injury risk

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) If Patrick Mahomes had his druthers, the Kansas City quarterback would be on the field from the first snap to the last when the Chiefs play San Francisco in their third preseason game Saturday night.

Not likely, of course. But potentially not far off.

That's because Chiefs coach Andy Reid continues to take an old-school approach to using starters during the preseason, rather than protecting his guys from the potential for injury - the trend that has been developing league wide. So, he generally plays the No. 1 units into the second quarter of their second tuneup and the starters into the second half of their penultimate exhibition game.
