The Kansas City Chiefs went “live” for day ten of Training Camp as they prepare for their preseason game of the year against the Seattle Seahawks.

The Kansas City Chiefs were on the field for day ten of Training Camp.  Today was another “live” session, the first that the team has had outdoors.  Today’s practice was full of big hits, especially from Daniel Sorenson who seemed to be a different player a day after the Chiefs signed safety Jeron Johnson.

There is still some early movement in the Chiefs secondary as different players and combinations are being looked at by the coaching staff.  Apart from Marcus Peters and Ron Parker, the team is rotating players through the other spots looking for a good starting group.  Andy Reid addressed this a bit today, regarding specifically the safety spot.

Reid told reporters that he likes Sorenson for his smarts and physicality.  While nobody is going to confuse Daniel Sorenson for Eric Berry, he is going to be filling in that role while Berry continues his current holdout.  That at least solves the issue of who will be starting for now.

 Another spot in the secondary that has seen some change is the number two corner spot.  Today that position saw Marcus Cooper getting reps with the first team.  While that is not something many Chiefs fans want to hear, the truth is that Cooper has the talent, he just needs to develop his game.  In his first day with the starting group, he held up pretty well.

There was an even more surprising change up to the first team defense today as DJ Alexander stepped in at inside linebacker in place of Derrick Johnson.  Obviously this isn’t permanent, but it does show that the Kansas City Chiefs are pretty confident in their depth at inside linebacker.  Having young talent in that vital area of the field is a huge boost to the future of the franchise.
