Friday 9/24 Practice Report – Update

From Arrowhead Stadium

The Chiefs went through their final practice of the week in preparation for the San Francisco game on Friday morning.

And they did so inside Arrowhead Stadium. On Friday’s before home games, it sounds like head coach Todd Haley is always going to move his players from the team’s facility to the stadium for that session.

“I heard one time that if you study for the test where you are going to take the test that your results go up,” Haley said. “As long as they let me get away with it, we’ll do it.

“I don’t know whether there is benefit or not, but I like being up there in the stadium where we are going to play. Overall it was a high tempo practice and we made a little bit of improvement. Now, it’s up to guys to take care of their bodies, stay in their books and it will be time for the game.”

It will not be time for LDE Tyson Jackson or RT Ryan O’Callaghan

Both players appear headed for inactive status because of their injuries. The official injury report lists them as doubtful for Sunday. Jackson’s left knee and O’Callaghan’s right groin kept them out of yet another practice. That should put both Shaun Smith and Barry Richardson into the starting lineups again for the 49ers, just as they were for Cleveland last week.

A surprising addition to the doubtful list is second-year S Donald Washington, and reportedly it’s “non-injury related.” That’s all the information supplied by the team.

Three key defensive players went through their second day of full practice participation and are listed as probable: OLB Tamba Hali (foot/ankle), DE Wallace Gilberry (back) and FS Jon McGraw (hamstring.)

Also S Reshard Langford and he was again limited in his practice participation on Friday and is listed as questionable with an ankle injury.

For the 49ers C Eric Heitmann (fibula) is out. Listed as doubtful are WR Ted Ginn (knee) and CB William James (ankle). LB Takeo Spies (knee) is questionable and RB Anthony Dixon (knee) is probable.

    I would have thought that we would be getting more information. This is the entire practice report? I want more Chiefs information and less Enriques’ video vaults.

    Glad that your back Bob! I guess your now Probable for the game?

    @Michael O, I’m guessing this is about all he’s being given. Seems like the new administration is a bit skimpy with the 411.

    That and I imagine Bob is still getting back into the swing of things after the Dheli Belly or whatever set him back early this week.

    I have to admit that I’m hoping for a bit more next week. I’m also hoping for a win. A healthy Bob full of info and a 3-0 record would make my week.

    Starting to think Donald may not workout. Doubtful for non injury related that’s not good.

    Hey Bob heard your interview on Weis today. When you asked him the question of whether Cassel victim of situation around him (referring to the receivers) and not the other way around I noticed how Weis dodge that question. They want admit but these receivers aren’t getting it done right now. Mcluster still hasn’t been effective at the slot. We’re getting nothing from Chambers he can’t get open. Bowe like I said I’m hold judgement until we start getting more throws his way. But overall its the receivers.

    I’ve watched last 2 games its not like Cassel is out there looking like Jamarcus Russell. Overthrowing and Underthrowing guys. Or checking it down when guys are open down the field. These guys just aren’t getting any separation. Until that changes he’s going to continue to struggle. Ask the immortal Brett Farve what its like not having any playmakers in Minnesota. ITs not fun playing QB when no one can get open but you take all the blame for the team’s poor passing statistics.

    Maybe Weis hasn’t called his best games, yet. He may be getting a feel for the players and his return to calling plays in the NFL. Weis gets to get his ears wet again. Haley started to hit his stride as a play-caller for the Chiefs at about the half-way mark, and Haley was lights out in AZ. The fact is, Haley may call a better game than Weis. We’ll see, but Haley takes a back seat to no one as an O coordinator and play-caller.

    Who does Cassel trust most? JC? CC? DB? There is also a new mix on the OL which plays into it, in addition to Charlie Weis’ arrival.

    Halfway through the season sounds about right for the beefing to start if the offense is still clunking along.

  • September 25, 2010  - Edward says:

    I agree Tracy hopefully as the season go along Weis will get more creative in getting Bowe more involved. And hopefully Mcluster will improve as a receiver and find ways to keep his footing on his routes. I’m hoping Horne can impress the coaching staff in practice enough to see the field as well. Definately think with his ability to get open and size he can provide a spark in the passing game.

    Could just mean an illness or sickness. I wouldn’t read too much into it just yet.
