Kansas City police confirm Chiefs CB Sean Smith arrested for driving under the influence on Monday.
The Chiefs demoted Smith to second-team on their OTA's depth chart after learning that Smith had been arrested for DUI after losing control of his vehicle while making a left turn and striking a light post, unbeknownst to Smith in front of a cop car that happened to be patrolling the area, at about 12:30 am CT Monday morning. No one was hurt in the incident and if the NFL's track record is any indication, only Smith's bank account will be hurt by this incident, and not the team. The NFL has not shown a history of suspending players for this type of behavior, but no official penalty has been handed down by the league as of yet so the chance of a suspension is still a possiblity.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Joffrey Lauvergne practiced in full Thursday.
Lauvergne has missed the last 12 games due to a back injury but was back practicing in full on Thursday. It's a great sign for the second year pro who played well when he was healthy. He started the three games he played so we will wait and see if that's what Denver has in store for him when he returns to the lineup. Analysis: James Grande
Johnny Manziel was demoted because he lied about were he was.
When video surfaced of Manziel out partying, you just knew that head coach Mike Pettine had enough of this far-too scrutinized situation. Manziel has been a veritable nightmare for the coaches and continues to show a complete lack of maturity. Josh McCown will get the start in Week 12 and, barring injury, is likely the full-time starter moving forward. Analysis: Howard Bender
