Kansas City Chiefs DT Kyle Love, who was signed earlier this week, may be needed to play as soon as Week 12 against the San Diego Chargers with DT Mike DeVito (knee) suffering from a sprained knee. Love was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, which is why the New England Patriots and Jacksonville Jaguars cut him. He lost 20 pounds to the disease and is weighing 312 pounds currently, the lightest he's been in years. "I knew I was eating bad. I just had to cut out all the bad stuff," Love said. "A lot of people try to blow it out of proportion, that I lost all the weight because of diabetes. I lost the weight on my own, and then I got diagnosed with diabetes." The Chiefs signed him after he received clearance from the team doctors.
