ST. JOSEPH, Mo. -- The first preseason game tends to be a glorified practice for most NFL teams, the starters rarely playing more than a series or the first quarter before giving way to the backups and no-hopes.There may be a little more value in Saturdays game for the Kansas City Chiefs.Nick Foles will get his first taste of game action a week after signing to be quarterback Alex Smiths backup, and a slew of players who may be counted on heavily due to injuries and absences early in the season could get significant playing time against the Seattle Seahawks.We dont really game-plan for our first preseason opponent, Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. We try to go back and look at plays that arent necessarily complex plays. That way we can give the young guys a chance to go out and play at a high level without have to overthink things.Foles isnt exactly a young guy, but he fits in the same category.The former third-round pick came to Kansas City with a broad understanding of Reids offense, having worked in it during their time together in Philadelphia. But it has evolved enough over the past three years that there has still been a steep learning curve.Not enough to prevent Foles from quickly climbing to No. 2 on the depth chart, though.Reid said Smith and the starters will likely play the first quarter against Seattle, but Foles will get at least the second quarter to show what he can do.I would say (with) about half of it he is comfortable, Reid said. We have about 403 pass plays, so I dont expect him to have every one of those down. Thats from OTAs on. Weve been going at this since April and hes only been here about a week, so its understandable.The Chiefs were not actively seeking a backup quarter, with three developmental prospects on the roster in Tyler Bray, Aaron Murray and Kevin Hogan. But with the departure of Chase Daniel in free agency, Smith was the only quarterback left who has played a meaningful snap.The marriage between the Chiefs and Foles made perfect sense.I feel really good. Theres definitely still a ways to go, Foles said, but I feel more comfortable with just getting in the huddle, saying the plays, knowing where everybodys at, knowing the timing of everything, knowing where the routes are. And thats just going to be a process.One big step in the process is to face someone in a different jersey.Thats really the blessing of the preseason, Foles said. To get a different look thats an opposing team, those reps are priceless. You cant get them any other way.Bray is expected to play the third quarter and Murray and Hogan will split the fourth, though Reid acknowledged that his tentative plan is subject to change.The quarterbacks arent the only ones looking forward to the opener.All-Pro safety Eric Berry still hasnt signed his franchise tender, and Tyvon Branch and Husain Abdullah left in the offseason, so Daniel Sorenson will get some extended playing time.The same goes for the rotation of linebackers filling in for pass rushers Justin Houston and Tamba Hali, both of whom are recovering from offseason knee surgery. Houstons surgery was in February and he is not expected back until at least midway through the year.Whoever is out there, they have to perform at a high level, Chiefs defensive coordinator Bob Sutton said. We all know every guy has different skill levels and different things they are better than the next guy, so you tilt your defense a little more in that direction.I think well be fine and were looking forward to seeing where we go.Game notes The Chiefs did not practice Thursday and were scheduled to have a mock game Friday before playing the Seahawks. ... Other players who may not play Saturday include LB Josh Mauga (groin strain) and LB Dezman Moses (glute strain). ... WR Jeremy Maclin had a collision during practice Wednesday and WR Tyreek Hill had a cramp, but both are likely to be available. Nick Novak Jersey . Anthony Calvillo, through 20 CFL seasons, was frequently invincible and largely stoic in the heat of competition. But underneath the professional exterior he was, and is, compellingly human. DeAndre Hopkins Jersey . Ferrer, trying to win his fourth title on Mexican soil, will next play South Africas Kevin Anderson, who eliminated American Sam Querrey,7-6 (2), 6-4. Also Wednesday, Gilles Simon (6) of France beat Donald Young of the United States 6-4, 6-3, Ukraines Alexandr Dolgopolov downed Frenchman Jeremy Chardy 6-3, 6-4 and Croatias Ivo Karlovic defeated Dudi Sela of Israel 7-6 (4), 6-2. http://www.texansrookiesproshop.com/whitney-mercilus-texans-jersey/ . -- Aaron Murray threw for 408 yards and three touchdowns, ran for another score, and led No. Jaelen Strong Jersey . -- Cam Newton pranced into the end zone, placed his hands over his chest and did his familiar Superman pose. Tyler Ervin Jersey . In the lead up - which seemed to begin the moment Mike Geiger blew the whistle in Houston last Thursday night - the Impact rumour mill went into overdrive. The speculation went into meltdown mode, of the golden nugget variety. EUGENE, Ore. -- Even as the middle child in a family with 11 kids, Keni Harrison always stood out.Only fitting, then, that her family stands out, too. A few of them are hoping theyll be at the stadium in Rio de Janeiro later this summer -- dressed in their familiar neon shirts to cheer on Keni, the American record holder in the 100-meter hurdles, at the Olympics.The 23-year-old Harrison used sports -- first gymnastics, then soccer, then, finally, track -- to carve her path in an oversized family that wasnt originally planned that way.At first, her mother, Karon, didnt want kids, yet ended up with one short of a dozen -- nine of whom are adopted, including Keni, who will try to secure her spot in Rio next week at Olympic trials in Eugene, Oregon.I know it wasnt easy raising all of us, said Keni, who broke the American record last month. But my parents found a way. They always found a way.The Harrison crew grew up in a six-bedroom house in Clayton, North Carolina. Bathroom space was at a premium and meals were typically on the run -- many of them eaten out of the back of a hotel shuttle bus the family used to transport all the kids from one activity to another.Keni was born in Tennessee to a mother she never knew. Karon and Gary had just adopted a daughter, Tasha, when they got a call from the agency about another infant in need of a home. Were they interested?Next thing they knew, they were on their way home from a camping trip to pick up Keni. She and Tasha are 11 days apart.The Harrison house has always been filled with noise, screams, love and caring. Casey, 33, is the oldest and Kara, 18, the youngest in a family that includes kids of many nationalities -- including two from Bolivia and two of Korean heritage.It was always busy, but you dont think about it, their mom said. You had birthday parties out of the back of the car. You always keep snacks in the car. Youre running here and there.Both the parents are retired military, with Gary now working for the Transportation Security Administration and Karon as an assistant preschool teacher.They bought toilet paper in bulk, along with cereal, mac and cheese, fish sticks and milk -- lots of milk. The family went through nearly seven gallons a week.Gary and their grandpa built a large dining room table so they could congregate. One problem: They were rarely home together. Their schedules were just too frenzied; Karon memorized everything and jotted it all down for her husband.They made plentty of memories.dddddddddddd A few embarrassing ones, too.Like when the family picked pick up Casey after high school cross country practice in a shuttle bus with the word Marriott fading on the side but still visible.Theyd all yell my name and wave, laughed Casey, an Air Force major living in Anchorage, Alaska. You sort of pretend you dont know the people yelling out the window at you.It was hard to ignore the talent of Keni, though.At first, she appeared headed toward a soccer career. She was super-fast, which drew the attention of the track coach who asked her to run in a few meets.She showed so much potential even with little training and wearing tennis shoes. It didnt take long until she hit her stride, capturing 100 and 400 hurdles titles at the 2010 USA Junior Olympics. She caught the attention of Clemson, where she went before transferring to Kentucky and going on to twin two individual NCAA titles.Keni remains a volunteer assistant coach for Kentucky while training under Wildcats coach Edrick Floreal. At the recent NCAA championships in Eugene, she helped out the team before squeezing in her own workouts.Shes the kind of kid that doesnt take anything for granted, her mom said. Keni feels she has to live up to a lot of expectations and doesnt want to disappoint people. She doesnt realize that everyone will be proud of her no matter how she does.Support. This group has that in abundance.Whenever Keni competes, theres sure to be family around. Usually in bright attire. Thats the way it was when Casey graduated from the Air Force Academy, her family driving out to Colorado and wearing fluorescent green shirts.People were like, `Where is the (family) section? Casey recounted. Im like, `See all those green shirts? Its right there.Just thinking about the trials has Kenis mom on edge, especially since she has to miss it for a previously planned trip. Her husband will be there, though.Its a loaded field, too, one that includes 2008 Beijing Olympic gold medalist Dawn Harper-Nelson, Lolo Jones and Brianna Rollins, the 2013 world outdoor champion. But Harrison is the one to catch after breaking the American record last month at the Nike Prefontaine Classic in a time of 12.24 seconds. It was just 0.03 shy of eclipsing the fastest time in history.To everybody else, shes a superstar, Casey said. To us, shes just Keni.
