Kansas City Rebels

With the latest news from the blog's Kansas City bureau, we have a few updates on three former Rebels playing in the NFL with the Chiefs.

First, Dexter McCluster and Kendrick Lewis both turned in standout performances at Kansas City's latest practice. Both were named the practice's most outstanding player in an informal poll of fans.

McCluster, who dropped a screen pass on one of his first looks of the night, turned things around immediately and put on a show for the fans at Spratt. McCluster lined up all over the field and drew ovations following rushes, receptions and returns. His 60-yard TD catch from QB Matt Cassel may have been the highlight of the night, but he also found the end zone on a 45-yard fly in one-on-one drills vs. the DBs and made a brilliant cutback for 25 yards off a zone read at running back.

Lewis had three nice pass breakups on the night, with two of them coming during Red Zone work. On all three plays, Lewis had to make a sharp break on the football and battle a receiver for the rights to the football.

Next up, we have an update an former Ole Miss offensive lineman Darryl Harris by the Kansas City Star, who is finding his niche with the Chiefs.
