Training Camp Update – 8/21

From the Truman Sports Complex

The Chiefs are on the practice field Sunday afternoon, bringing their training camp back to their facility from St. Joseph. According to head coach Todd Haley, the approach will be the same as activity at Missouri Western State University.

Haley spoke to the media before practice and had a few comments on the game Friday night against Baltimore. He mentioned positives:

– FUNDAMENTALS – “Fundamentally I thought we did things better, specifically through the first three quarters of the game. A lot of good things were happening.”

– RB DEXTER MCCLUSTER – “He made a number of plays that I thought were exciting for us as a team and good things for him.

– OLB JUSTIN HOUSTON – “I thought he made a couple real good plays. On top of playing good as a defensive player, he made a big play on special teams beating everybody down the field and causing a fumble. He showed real progress through the week and into the game.”

– OLB CAMERON SHEFFIELD – “I’ve been really excited watching how he responds getting into some of these bigger situations. I thought he showed up.”

Haley also made positive mention of QB Tyler Palko, P Dustin Colquitt and WR Verran Tucker.

He was not so positive about the team’s fourth quarter play, especially some of the penalties that hurt the team and helped set up several touchdown drives by the Ravens.

The head coach said again he had no problems with Ravens head man John Harbaugh and how Baltimore handled the last few minutes of the game with timeouts and long pass plays.
