Two members of the Chiefs' ballhawking secondary are feeling beat up after a beatdown.

Cornerback Sean Smith (knee bruise) and safety Tyvon Branch (foot) are both banged up after a five-interception game last Sunday against the rival Broncos.

Smith's injury doesn't sound too serious. He was walking around the Chiefs locker room without a visible limp, according to Terez A. Paylor of the Kansas City Star.

Branch, a rotational safety, could miss more time. He'll receive an MRI after leaving Sunday's game in the first quarter.
