On the defensive side of the field for the Kansas City Chiefs, there wasn’t much to tell of. Marcus Peters got his interception of course…he just does that. Peters has had a pick in every single practice so far. Shells and shorts or not, that’s just flat out impressive. There appears to be no sign of a sophomore slump.
Phillip Gaines is getting more work with the first team defense. It appears the Chiefs are still easing him back into the flow of things. As of now, Steven Nelson has continued to get the starting reps opposite of Marcus Peters, but shifts inside in Nickel packages. On those plays, Gaines takes over opposite of Peters.
Another notable move on the defensive side of the ball was rookie Chris Jones getting snaps with the first team. Jones came into the spot normally held by Jaye Howard next to Dontari Poe. This is definitely good news for the Chiefs. Jones has had a strong Training Camp and the team appears to be somewhat confident in his ability to take on a bigger role.
