From St. Joseph, Missouri
The Chiefs worked under the lights inside Spratt Stadium on the campus of Missouri Western State University and drew a nice crowd for the 2-hour practice.
Head coach Romeo Crennel had his team in full pads as they worked on the artificial surface. Crennel has promised a normal session and that’s what the Chiefs produced with no special add-ons with the crowd watching and hoping for some good football fireworks.
Missing from the action as a precaution were RB Jamaal Charles and TE Tony Moeaki. Also out were WR Junior Hemingway (groin), along with newly signOLB Edgar Jones and OT Ray Willis. They are both serving their acclimation periods before they are allowed to don the pads.
Several players really stood out during the workout. On defense it was OLB Andy Studebaker and DE Ropati Pitoitua who turned up the intensity. Not sure what they had for dinner, but both were unstoppable on the pass rush and Studebaker was leading the charge against the run. On offense, QB Matt Cassel looked good, LG Ryan Lilja looked very good, RB Cyrus Gray showed some moves and a couple of the wide receivers made some nice catches, topped by Steve Breaston and Jon Baldwin.
During practice both CB Brandon Flowers and DE Glenn Dorsey got nicked. It looked like both were ankle or foot or lower leg. Spearheaded went back in, while Flowers walked off the field but did get a cart ride to the pocket room.
