... will be reactivated from suspension today. One more player back. It will be interesting to see how the Chiefs deal with his addition - I think the OL got its thing together quite nicely over the past two games. It will be a tough decision to shake the whole thing up once again.

As Stephenson was not allowed to practice with the team during his suspension I think the Chiefs will keep him as a backup for week 5 at minimum and consider putting him in at RT for week 7 (after the bye) the earliest.

Sidenote: The Chiefs will not have to release a player as Joe McKnight should be placed on IR today opening up a roster slot.

Continuity and cohesiveness are hard bedfellows to find. Seems like, at least early on, the Chiefs have found some of that. Greater minds than mine will make these decisions moving forward about Stephenson, but for now.....it's the ....."if it ain't broke" ....syndrome for me. Thoughts.

I don't think he'll start next week. But he'll definitely get some playing time. The 49ers D is much better than the Patriots.

Nope - not allowed to during his suspension.

Stephenson is perhaps our best lineman, he will def start next week. Just because he hasnt been allowed to practice doesn't mean he hasnt been keeping in shape and keeping up with the plays. He knew exactly when he would be allowed to play again.

Prolly right....jus hope it doesn't screw up the chemistry these five guys have been workin on. It seems to be comin together. Nice to have another competent body either way for rotation and injury.

Wouldn't be surprised to see us roll with Harris ala Schwartz last year

Not that Rob Ninkovitch is a world beater, perhaps Ahmad Bradshaw would be a better test. Harris wasn't very good against Denver/Miami that have a great pass rush.

Stephenson is a local so hopefully he gets his spot back.

What does that mean tho? Harris and Stephenson are better RT's than Mcglynn is at LG, but is one of them better at LG than him? I would think so, but you usually don't see guys who are strictly tackles go to guard like that.

It would not surprise me at all to see Stephenson at Lg this week.

Why do you say that? Going into this weekend, the Pats were rated higher.
