Consecutive losses to Pittsburgh and Oakland have caused some consternation among Chiefs fans, but Andy Reid has been doing this head coaching thing long enough — 19 years now — to know this:

In the NFL, things are never as good — or bad — as you think they are. And thus, it’s easy for the Chiefs coach to turn his attention toward their next game, a prime-time date with the archrival Denver Broncos on Oct. 30.

Reinforcements could soon be on the way for the Monday Night Football showdown at Arrowhead Stadium.

“You have some guys coming back that haven’t been a part of it that have been hurt,” Reid said. “You have an opportunity to play against another AFC West opponent. Those are the positive things.”

When asked specifically if center Mitch Morse — who has missed the Chiefs’ last five games with a foot injury — and guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif — who has missed the last three because of a knee injury — could be ready for the game, Reid answered in the affirmative.

“Yeah, there is a chance — there is a chance we get some guys back,” Reid said. “Not only those two, but a couple of the other guys back, too. It will be good to get them back in the mix.”

Another player who missed the Chiefs’ loss at Oakland with an injury was running back Charcandrick West, who has been sidelined with a concussion. And offensive lineman Parker Ehinger, a starter last year until a season-ending knee injury, is also working his way back into form.
