AFC West Notes: Chiefs, McCoy, Raiders

Let’s take a quick spin around the AFC West:

  • Chiefs running back LeSean McCoy has settled a lawsuit with his former girlfriend in which she accused him of orchestrating an attack against her in 2018, according to a report from the Associated Press. Delicia Gordon claimed McCoy failed to protect her from being robbed, bloodied, and beaten in a July incident, and later revised her lawsuit to allege McCoy abused her and organized the assault. McCoy, for his part, has denied the allegations, never been charged with a crime, and was never suspended or placed on the commissioner’s exempt list by the NFL.
  • The Raiders could potentially be without one of their best offensive players when they face the Titans on Sunday. Rookie running back Josh Jacobs recently indicated on Snapchat that he’s been playing through a fractured shoulder, and he’s now missed consecutive practices, per Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com (Twitter link). With Oakland’s postseason odds dwindling (11%, per FiveThirtyEight), the Raiders could opt to hold Jacobs out. Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington would be in line for more work if Jacobs missed Week 14.
  • In case you missed it, the Chiefs placed running back Darrell Williams on injured reserve this week and replaced him by signing old friend Spencer Ware.
  • Broncos edge rusher Von Miller may miss another game while nursing a hamstring strain. Miller previously hadn’t been sidelined for a contest since tearing his ACL in 2013.

    Jacobs is more valuable than an 11% chance at the playoffs, considering we cannot beat a passing team.
