Philbin calls out Caleb Sturgis during team meeting for missing FGs
"We were in the team meeting today and we said we’ve got to make those field goals," Philbin said. "We kind of went through that sequence where we took a sack and knocked ourselves back, and made the field goal more difficult. That being said, I said to him right there in the whole team meeting, we’ve got to make those field goals. He knows that and I suspect that he will work at it and he’ll get better at it."
Sturgis is connecting on 78.6 percent of his field goals (11 of 14) after converting at a 76.5 percent rate (26 of 34) as a rookie in 2013.

Chiefs' Jamaal Charles admits he was a little shaken up by hard hit
Though, Charles admitted during a radio interview with ESPN that maybe he was dealing with symptoms of a concussion.
"It definitely hurt," Charles said, per ProFootballTalk.com. "It’s like, I woke up -- I mean, like, a couple plays later I was seeing light bulbs, like, light bulbs around my eyes, and I was trying to catch them. But I was in the game so I was like, ‘Alright, let’s get the ball and run again.'"
Charles added he tried to avoid going through the league's concussion protocol. Charles left a Chiefs' playoff game in January due to a concussion.
"I didn’t have a concussion, but it definitely was a hit that shocked me," he said. "But I don’t think I had to go through the concussion protocols and all that. I didn’t want to go through that again because of what happened in the playoffs. I was definitely fine, I think I came out pretty good."

Rice's grievance against the league is set for Nov. 5 and 6, while his grievance against the Ravens doesn't have a scheduled date for resolution. He'll look to seek the salary he would have earned if he had been reinstated in Week 3 in his grievance against the Ravens.
