Jonathan Baldwin Attends Chiefs Practice

As some of you may know, I wasn't around much this weekend, including the Kansas City Chiefs practice on Sunday, because I decided to begin the process of turning Ms. Primetime into Mrs. Primetime which, for this weekend, included a the question and a lot of way-too-early wedding talk. That's the reason for my absence the last couple days.

(There's a "I only talk about the bloggers that are here" joke in there someplace.)

Anyway, the Chiefs practiced on Sunday which meant the return of WR Jonathan Baldwin. Sort of. He didn't really practice, according to reports, instead spending much of his time in the rehab zone.

This is the first practice after he reportedly got into a fight with RB Thomas Jones and hurt his arm/wrist/thumb/whatever. Kent Babb of the KC Star reports he was wearing a cast on his right arm "that almost reached his elbow."

Reportedly, it's a cracked thumb, which can keep you out for several weeks, especially receivers. It's believed that Baldwin will miss the entire preseason with the injury, although the Chiefs aren't saying anything about it. Even if he's ready for the regular season, it's hard seeing him make an impact early in the season after this.

The best thing Baldwin can do is participate in team meetings, know the playbook better than anyone and be mentally prepared to return. The key is not to let this injury derail his rookie year.
