RIVER FALLS, Wis. | Glenn Dorsey's knee injury isn't as bad as the Chiefs initially feared.
Their top draft pick has a sprained knee and won't play in Thursday's preseason opener against the Bears in Chicago. But they are hopeful he could play in the following game on Aug. 16 against Arizona at Arrowhead Stadium.
Even if not, the Chiefs still think Dorsey's timetable is ahead of that of their other first-round draft pick, offensive tackle Branden Albert. Albert, who has a sprained foot, might not play at all in the preseason.
The Chiefs don't have that fear with Dorsey, who was injured during Saturday night’s annual Family Fun Night practice.
