It was another promising practice for the Kansas City Chiefs. Obviously we don’t know much until they step on the field with another team, but so far there is a lot to be excited about. Oddly enough, that is especially true on offense. Hopefully the job being done by Hill and Robinson will be continued when we get to the real thing.
On the injury front, both Albert Wilson and Josh Mauga remain out with injuries. Wilson is still nursing his calf strain while Mauga is dealing with a groin issue. In their place, Rod Streater and Ramik Wilson are getting some solid looks and a real opportunity to make their mark on the roster.
Rakeem Nunez-Roaches made his return to the field today after not being able to practice yesterday. Apparently he had a very minor foot issue and is good to go. That’s good news for the young man because the Chiefs defensive line is proving to be very deep this year, and Nunez doesn’t want to fall behind the rest of the group.
The only new injury was to Knile Davis who has a shoulder injury after taking a huge shot from Daniel Sorenson. It is not expected that this will be a long-term injury. The Chiefs should certainly hope that it isn’t. Knile Davis has some trade value to the organization, assuming he doesn’t make the roster, and has looked very good in Training Camp.
The Kansas City Chiefs have three more practices this week before they take a couple days off ahead of their trip to Seattle. We can expect an official depth chart to be released soon. This first preseason game carries a good deal of importance for a number of camp battles, as well as for advertising players on the trade market. Plus, it’s one step closer to real NFL football!
