The Kansas City Chiefs wrapped up this week of Training Camp practices with a pair of sessions in full pads ahead of their first preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks.
The Kansas City Chiefs were busy these past two days getting ready for their first preseason game of the season. The team will be hosting the Seattle Seahawks this Saturday at 3:30 pm (CT). This opener will be the first chance for the coaches, front office, and fans to get a glimpse of the roster in live action.
This week of practices also featured the Chiefs release of their first depth chart. There weren’t a lot of surprises for fans, as the depth chart largely reflected what we have been seeing on both offense and defense.
That first game is also coming at just the right time. The Chiefs are relatively healthy right now, which is always good. On top of that though, the team had their first “chippy” moment when Jaye Howard and Mitchell Schwartz got into it a little bit. They were quickly separated and got back to work, which is a good sign. It’s also a sign that these guys are ready to start hitting someone for real.
While preseason games generally aren’t that exciting for fans (the initial excitement tends to lead to a let down), they are very important for the coaching and front office staff who are trying to make some very difficult decisions regarding the roster. This first game will help some players secure their futures, while others will see themselves slipping towards obscurity on the cut list.
