Rookie Mini-Camp Update #5 – Sunday Practice

From the Truman Sports Complex

The final day of the Chiefs three-day mini-camp wrapped up with a one-hour practice at their facilities.

“Overall the camp was a good camp,” said head coach Romeo Crennel. “We got them introduced to our system and the way we do things, what we expect of them. I think they got their eyes opened a little.

“The best part about it now is that they don’t go back home. They get to stay here and then we indoctrinated them into our off-season program, so (Monday) morning they are going to be doing individual drills with the veterans. They get to continue what we started here.”

There were 27 players on the field for the session. The Chiefs sent home nine of the 10 players they had in for tryouts, keeping only QB David LeGree for Sunday’s practice.

“We told them and we told their agents when we brought them here, it was just a tryout and we are going to sit down and decided after everything was over what we were going to do,” Crennel said.

Also missing from Sunday practice were seventh-round draft choice DT Jerome Long, who reported back to San Diego State because of finals and first-year OL Rob Bruggeman did not work because of a finger injury he suffered on Saturday.

Phase Two of the Chiefs off-season program will continue next week with the players allowed to spend time on the field with their position coaches, as long as there is no offense vs. defense session and no pads and helmets are worn. All the rookies except for Long and WR Devon Wylie are allowed to take part in that work. Both will be allowed to take part next week, after completion of finals on his campus. Their will work until the end of June, even after the veterans are finished in mid-June.
