"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 only decided to extend Love a contract after he received clearance from team doctors, and coach Andy Reid said Wednesday that he's in shape enough to play Sunday.

"We know he has the Type 2 diabetes. He has that under control. His weight is good," Reid said. "He's in pretty good shape. The doctors said that wasn't an issue. His weight had been up, and that was an issue at that time, but he has that under control."

Reid couldn't say how quickly it will take Love to assimilate to the defense, but he may be forced to play against San Diego out of necessity. If that's the case, Reid said he'd like fill the nose tackle position in the middle of the defensive line.

"There's a chance he could work in, and we've got to see how he does in practice, talk to the defensive guys," Reid said, "but right now I'd tell you he has playing experience."
