Chiefs coach Andy Reid is well-aware of fans who dress like him — or even dress their babies like him — and he doesn’t mind at all. In fact, he even took a quick break from his grandbaby on Halloween to take pictures with one lucky fan.
His only caveat is that fans should start slimming down like he has.
“I was over at my son’s house for Halloween with my little grandbaby on his first Halloween and my daughter-in-law came running over to say there was a guy like me dressed up asking for candy,” Reid said. “I went and took some pictures and told him he had too much stuffing. He had four pillows and I told him we are down to one.”
Reid pleased with Mays’ return
Linebacker Joe Mays made his long-awaited return to the field Sunday after preseason wrist surgery.
“I thought it was important that he got in and got used to the speed of the game again,” Reid said.
“He did that on special teams, and we will see how that goes this week. Bob (Sutton, Chiefs defensive coordinator) has all these different packages, so if he works in on one of those, he works in.”
Cornerback Chris Owens also returned from a knee injury. He recorded two tackles and recovered a fumble in the victory.
Players on the mend
Tight end Anthony Fasano sustained a knee bruise during Sunday’s game and was still tender Monday, but Reid is expecting him to be ready this weekend against Seattle.
Cornerbacks Phillip Gaines and Jamell Fleming are also close to returning. Gaines is still recovering from an ankle sprain suffered the previous week, and Fleming has a hamstring strain.
