Coach Romeo Crennel intimated Wednesday that Steve Breaston has been a healthy scratch for four of the Chiefs' past five games because he doesn't understand the offense.
It's a strange charge for a six-year veteran who caught 61 passes as recently as last season. Breaston, naturally, doesn't agree with Crennel's assessment. "Me?," Breaston replied when told of Crennel's comments. "They didn't tell me that. I wouldn't go as far to say I don't understand the offense. I just know that, personally, I do know the offense. ... I'm just trying to stay out of the way. I don't understand this, either." The Chiefs could use Breaston for Week 15 with Dwayne Bowe (ribs) out, but Crennel has given no indication he'll be active. Breaston is signed through 2015, but could be granted a change of scenery in the offseason.
