Under sunny skies and with a cold wind out of the north-northwest blasting them, the Chiefs were outside for their Thursday practice, wearing full pads and getting ready for Sunday’s visit from the Denver Broncos.
“I thought today, with the pads on, it was a great practice,” said head coach Todd Haley. “In my opinion it was probably one of the best practices that we’ve had. Guys were into it. I feel like we made progress.”
ILB Demorrio Williams was again out of the action due to what the team said was a groin injury. He missed Wednesday’s practice as well.
SS Jon McGraw was in full pads, including a neck collar which was an addition to his personal armor. He wore a yellow jersey, indicating that teammates should not hit him. He suffered what the Chiefs said was a shoulder injury against San Diego on Monday night football. The team listed him as a full participant.
CB Javier Arenas was working in all the position drills and seemed to have no problems with his ankle injury. But after he was listed as a full participant on Wednesday, he was a limited participant on Thursday.
FS Kendrick Lewis was not on the injury report, but he continues to deal with a sore ankle that he injured in the game against the Raiders in Oakland.
With the Broncos, LB Wesley Woodyard (knee) did not practice for the second day. Listed as limited in practice were S Rahim Moore (concussion) and CB Cassius Vaughn (hamstring). Full participation was the designation for S Brian Dawkins (thigh), TE Virgil Green (neck), FB Spencer Larsen (shoulder) and RB Willis McGahee (hand).
