Practice Report/Update – 9/22

From the Truman Sports Complex

If the early portion of Thursday’s practice was any indication, the Chiefs were banging some heads during their workout under sunny skies.

The media only gets to see a small window of the practice, but the inside linebackers were going through position drills and banging pretty hard on each other as they worked on tackling. Assistant coach Adam Zimmer had the volume turned up and even head coach Todd Haley was across the field with his eye on the linebackers.

Thursday is the day the Chiefs practice in full pads, so it’s always going to be the most physical of their sessions. But after getting smashed 89-10, it would obviously be time to step on the accelerator at practice.

“It was a good, energetic, hard working day so far,” Haley said after practice was over. “The guys understand what their goal and what they need to do this week in all phases. It will be a supreme challenge. We need to be at our best. The guys are working hard to get ready to have their best game.”

WR Jonathan Baldwin was again a limited participant because of his broken right thumb. He continues to spend most of his practice time in the rehab area.

All other players were taking part in the workout during the open period to the media, including DE Wallace Gilberry (neck) who was a limited participant in Wednesday’s session. OLB Tamba Hali (ankle) appeared to be a full participant in Thursday’s session.

Also in the early period, practice squad FB Shane Bannon was working with the tight ends in a blocking drill against the outside linebackers.

For the Chargers, they placed LB Jonas Mouton on the injured-reserve list with a shoulder injury.  The rest of the injury/practice report remained the same as Wednesday. Not practicing were DE Luis Castillo (tibia), WR Malcom Floyd (groin), TE Antonio Gates (foot), WR Vincent Jackson (abdomen), DE Corey Liuget (ankle), S Bob Sanders (knee) and RB Mike Tolbert (calf).
