The Kansas City Chiefs were on the field in shorts and shells for a light practice on day eleven of Training Camp. With no contact at practice, the wide receivers had a big day hauling in passes.
The Kansas City Chiefs took the field for day eleven of Training Camp. Today was a “light” practice as the players were only in shorts, shells, and helmets. That means there was no hitting, which tends to favor the offense…something that was backed up by an impressive display by the Kansas City wide receivers.
The Chiefs are less than a week away from their preseason opener against the Seattle Seahawks. That will be the first real test for this team as they get ready for the 2016 NFL season. The team will want to avoid any injuries leading up to that game, so fans shouldn’t expect much contact this week.
Today’s practice did carry some significance though as it was the first day that we saw the Chiefs on the field after the release of the first depth chart of the season. Team’s insist that this first depth chart means nothing, and in the big picture they’re right, but that’s probably not as true as coaches and GMs want us to think.
For their part, the Kansas City Chiefs depth chart presented very few surprises. With only a couple of exceptions, though none with the starters, the depth chart was almost exactly what most pundits thought it would be.
That is going to change though. As we progress through the preseason and Training Camp, players are going to take and lose jobs. There will be a lot of change as time goes on. The most competitive days of Kansas City Chiefs Training Camp are still ahead of us.
