Thursday 12/30 Practice Report-Update

From the Truman Sports Complex

Should the Chiefs face any type of windy conditions in the playoffs, they can look back to their Thursday practice as a moment when they had to adapt.

Working outside in unexpected temperatures around 60 degrees, the Chiefs had to deal with a 24 mph wind blowing from the south that was sometimes gusting to 36 mph.

Not surprisingly, it’s the kind of day and wind that Todd Haley enjoys seeing his team work in for practice.

“As a former receivers coach these our days I really embraced,” Haley said. “When you get conditions like today you have to focus. You can get distracted by the wind blowing. Obviously It effects the passing game, catching the ball takes great focus and concentration. I always termed it a day you could get a lot better on. I feel like we did that on both sides of the ball.”

The Chiefs use scissor lifts to get their cameramen up high to tape practice, but in the early part of Thursday’s session, only one lift was raised and that was not to its normal height.

The only player not taking part was DB Donald Washington who has a left ankle/foot injury. Washington was on the field and in the rehab area riding the stationary bike. Everyone else on the roster appeared to be full participants in the work.

The Chiefs still have an open spot on their practice squad, which does not end with the passing of the regular season. Teams in the playoffs continue to use their developmental players in practice.

The Raiders practice/injury report for Thursday was:

  • Did not practice – RB Darren McFadden (toe), DT Richard Seymour (hamstring).
  • Limited – WR Johnnie Lee Higgins (ankle), WR Nick Miller (ankle), S Michael Mitchell (shoulder), OT Langston Walker (concussion).
  • Full practice – CB Nnamdi Asomugha (ankle), OT Mario Henderson (ankle), TE Zach Miller (foot), CB Chris Johnson (groin).

    Bob was that you that asked Hailey for a reflection on knowing Schottenheimer? I really get in to old story’s/history in general but especially anything regarding my Chiefs. I don’t listen to them “cause my modem or dsl or something isn’t fast enough and is irritating to listen to so that’s why I read them and I had to ask.

    When you see Marty tell him thanks, not just from me but from all of us Chiefs fans for turning KC back into a football town and everything else he did.
