After some roster shifting yesterday for the Kansas City Chiefs, there was a slight return to normalcy during today’s session.  Frank Zombo was back with the first team defense at OLB with Dee Ford.  That moved Dezman Moses back to the second team, though an injury led to him being replaced by Andy Mulumba.  Dadi Nicolas did continue to take snaps with the second team defense however.

Justin March continued his run with the first string in the absence of Josh Mauga.  It would stand to reason that March will get the start this week against the Rams.  That’s great news for March, and bad news for Mauga.  This could be another step towards the Chiefs making the decision to move on from Josh Mauga.

Tyler Bray was out again today, though that wasn’t unexpected.  Aaron Murray wasn’t as sharp today as he was yesterday, but neither was Nick Foles.  The top backup job is still wide open at this point, even with the signing of Foles.

Jamaal Charles made his return to the field today, but it was only for stretching and individual drills.  Kansas City Chiefs Trainer Rick Burkholder told the media after practice that the team was bringing Charles along according to the schedule.  He will be examined and re-evaluated before the Chiefs take the next step in getting him on the field full time.

Sloppy practices tend to happen during the course of Training Camp.  The Kansas City Chiefs are coming off a pretty depressing finish to their preseason opener, so it’s not surprising that we are seeing it now.  They will need to regain their focus and find their fire again quickly to avoid this kind of thing self-perpetuating itself through the remainder of the preseason and into the start of the regular season.
