Monday 10/4 Report

From the Truman Sports Complex

The Chiefs were back to work Monday morning after their three-day vacation for the bye week.

The players ran and lifted weights first thing, and then they went off for a team meeting and then meetings by position groups. They won’t get back to practice until Wednesday.

Like most football fans, head coach Todd Haley was working the remote and his NFL Ticket subscription on Sunday.

“I always enjoy that day,” Haley said. “We’ve got that Ticket deal and I sort of jumped around. It’s hard to stay focused when you have that. But I watched a good bit of that game.”

That game would be the Indianapolis at Jacksonville game where the Jaguars pulled the upset and left the Colts at 2-2 on the season.

Haley didn’t want to spend a lot of time talking about the Colts on Monday, preferring to leave that for later in the week. But he took a lot of questions from the media horde about Ryan Lilja, former Colts guard, now Chiefs guard, and what kind of information he can provide to the folks on the defensive side of the ball.

“Any time you have resources that played or coached somewhere, you always try to go to all lengths to do some research,” Haley said. “A guy like Ryan, that’s into football and a bright guy, he’s a good resource. But things change in this league. Each and every year is different in the NFL.

“As coaches who try to research any opportunities you have.”

As for being the NFL’s lone remaining unbeaten team, Haley had the predictable response.

“It doesn’t affect me one way or another,” he said. “My focus has been and will continue to be having the Kansas City Chiefs make a little bit of improvement every day. We have to do everything we can to be better today, and then Wednesday and through the rest of the week.”

Although they were not on the field, DE Tyson Jackson (knee), RT Ryan O’Callaghan (groin) and CB Javier Arenas (ankle) were all in the locker room and seemed to be moving around quite well. In fact, Arenas at one point was apparently imitating dance moves by fellow rookie Dexter McCluster.
