The Kansas City Chiefs continued on their road to the regular season with practice session number six of Training Camp. Today was highlighted by big plays, but also some concerning injuries.
As the Kansas City Chiefs continue to prepare for the 2016 season, they have begun to truly impress both fans and the media who are on hand to observe the team. This isn’t altogether unexpected as the team should be good. What is shocking though is that it is the younger players who are putting on the show.
It seems that every time I sit down to recap the day’s events, there is some rookie or other young player who has had a big day for the Chiefs. This is extremely good news for the team as they are still transitioning the roster towards the future (while not sacrificing their present talent). This is big news for the team both now and in the future.
That trend carried on today as Chiefs practice seemingly turned into the Tyreek Hill and Demarcus Robinson show. The two rookie wide receivers put on a display of big play ability as they caught deep ball after deep ball against the Kansas City secondary. Normally this would concern me about the secondary…except they seemed to hold up well against the rest of the roster.
Tyreek Hill’s athleticism has been well documented, but Robinson has been a bit overlooked by a lot of Chiefs fans thus far. Hopefully that starts to change as they see more and more of him. He was a player that I was very high on in the draft. As for Hill, showing up on the field and keeping his head down off of it is how he will win over the fan base.
