The Chiefs are locked into the fifth seed in the AFC regardless of what happens for them next weekend, so they may not expose some of their starters to the risk of injury when they travel to San Diego. Andy Reid said Monday, via Terez Paylor of the Kansas City Star, that he is still making up his mind about how to approach the game with the Chargers. Reid noted that he’d had success after resting players for the postseason in the past, so players like Jamaal Charles and Alex Smith may be getting plenty of rest before Kansas City plays in the Wild Card round.

Andy Reid really shouldn't cite anything involving playoff success as that was his major flaw in Philadelphia. Still, Knile Davis would be a real good start against the Chargers next week if Charles indeed is rested.ANALYST: Jeff Mans
