Practice Report/Update – 12/7

From the Truman Sports Complex

The cold and wind chased the Chiefs indoors for Wednesday practice, their first of the week in preparation for this Sunday’s game against the Jets in New Jersey.

Todd Haley said it wasn’t really so much to do with the weather, but the playing surface. The Chiefs worked inside on the fake stuff, the same type of turf they will play on at MetLife Stadium when they face the Jets. He expects to have his team outside for practice later in the week.

Early weather reports for the swamps of New Jersey over the coming weekend call for sunny skies and temperatures in the mid 40s.

All 61 players were on the field for the workout, but QB Kyle Orton was doing a lot more watching than taking part in anything because of the dislocated right index finger. Orton was wearing what appeared to be a small splint on the end of his finger, but it was not heavily bandaged or protected in any way. He made a few hand offs with an imaginary football, and did not attempt any passes during the open period of Chiefs practice.

The team’s practice report listed three players. LB Demorrio Williams (groin) was a full participant, with C Casey Wiegmann (finger) and QB Kyle Orton (finger) as limited participants.

The Jets have 16 players on their injury report, but only seven did not practice or were limited:

  • Did not practice – DL Mike DeVito (knee), DB Ellis Lankster (lower back), OL Brandon Moore (hip).
  • Limited participation – DL Marcus Dixon (hip), LB David Harris (ankle), RB Joe McKnight (elbow), DB Eric Smith (knee).
