Practice Report/Update – 12/29

From the Truman Sports Complex

For the final Thursday practice of the 2011 season, the Chiefs could not have asked for better weather conditions for their second session in preparation for facing the Denver Broncos on Sunday.

Temperatures were in the high 50s, with plenty of sunshine and no wind and it made for a delightful afternoon of football heavy lifting for Romeo Crennel and his team. There’s just one more practice left in a football season of practices that began on August 1 in St. Joseph for training camp.

“It was a great day out today for December so I think that helped the attitude of the guys as we were out there practicing,” Crennel said. “We’ve got this game Sunday and I think we are trying to get ready for it. We are going to play hard and they are going to do good and we’ll go from there.”

Two bodies were missing from the practice field – RB Jackie Battle and WR Jeremy Horne – and one was there, but did not practice – SS Jon McGraw. Battle is dealing with a foot injury that likely has ended his season a game early. McGraw did not work becauseof his high ankle sprain. That would be a setback for the veteran safety who did some limited work on Wednesday. Horne was absent from practice becasue of illness but he was in the building and attending meetings.

From Denver, the Broncos injury/practice report remained unchanged from Wednesday. S Brian Dawkins (neck) did not practice. Limited in practice were S David Bruton (Achilles) and CB Chris Harris (neck). Full participation involved S Quinton Carter (hip) and LB Von Miller (thumb).
