ST. JOSEPH, Mo--The Kansas City Chiefs are only two days away from breaking camp and heading back to Arrowhead.

Saturday night they'll battle the Rams for the Governor's Cup.

Brandon Flowers missed practice again Wednesday because of a bruised foot.

Dwayne Bowe is still missing with his holdout.

But we have a lot of other guys to talk about who are on the field.

Now in his fifth season, Chiefs defensive end Glenn Dorsey has become the veteran of this defensive line.

The first of three first round d-line picks in the last five drafts, Dorsey had quiet success in his young career.

Something the coaches are pleased with and are now challenging Dorsey to do in 2012."

"It's that leadership," says Dorsey. "We have a young group and he put a lot on me. I welcome the challenge. I take it on. A lot of young guys are looking at me, and other guys too to see how we do things. We have to put our best foot forward and show them the way to go."

Dorsey just has four sacks over his five years but he's doing something the coaches want him to do and that's stopping the run.

They're going to have to look to do that in their second preseason game. That's coming up Saturday night in St. Louis against the Rams.

"Some guys have some bumps and bruises and that's part of training camp," says coach Romeo Crennel. "And they get cold tubs and ice packs and all those things to get themselves well. That's where we are. So we're excited about the game coming up this weekend. And playing another team and seeing where we are  as far as this team goes."

Saturday's game at Arrowhead is at 7:00 pm.
