Linebacker Reggie Ragland issued a guarantee about the Chiefs and what has been a leaky run defense. “We’re going to stop that run,’’ Ragland said. “We’re going to stop it this year. Everybody has the right mindset . . . That line, that wall, is there. We’ve got the guys to do it. But at the end of the day it’s all about attitude when you want to stop the run. You’ve got to want to do that.’’ Two of the Chiefs’ major offseason free agent signings, inside linebacker Anthony Hitchens and nose tackle Xavier Williams, were aimed at fixing the run defense. The Chiefs didn’t get off to a great start in that area in their preseason opener against the Texans. They allowed a 19-yard run to Lamar Miller on the game’s second play. The Chiefs played against Houston without four defensive starters, including Ragland and Hitchens. Both are nursing ailments but practiced on Saturday and Ragland said he would play on Friday against the Falcons in Atlanta if he’s allowed. “I’m back and ready to get this thing rolling,’’ said Ragland, who has had some swelling in a knee that two years ago was surgically repaired. “If they tell me to go this Friday coming up, I’ll be ready to go.’’
