The Kansas City Chiefs held their first mandatory minicamp practice of the year on Tuesday. The Chiefs minicamp will run through Thursday, totaling three days of workouts. Here are all the rules for the Chiefs minicamp this week.

The usual folks are tweeting out good nuggets of info so keep an eye on these Twitter accounts this week: @JoshLooney, @AdamTeicher and @JoshKlingler. The Chiefs will also have video of Romeo Crennel's post-practice interviews this week.

Eric Berry excused for personal reasons

Not that it would have mattered -- Berry isn't practicing anyway. That goes for the two other ACL guys, Jamaal Charles and Tony Moeaki. Not sure what the personal problem are but this shouldn't be a concern as far as Berry's injury rehab is concerned.

Players that miss the first day of minicamp are subject to a $10,000 fine but Berry's absence was excused so I don't think he'll be hit with that.

Best of luck to whatever happened with him.

The Dwayne Bowe Show doesn't show

Again, as expected. Bowe has yet to sign his franchise tender which means he is not subject to fines for missing the mandatory minicamp. As we noted yesterday, there aren't any updates on Bowe at the moment. Chiefs GM Scott Pioli was asked on 810 WHB what his status was and he declined to comment on any specifics.

Brandon Siler hits the field

Remember him? He was supposed to compete with Jovan Belcher at inside linebacker last year but went down early in last year's training camp with an Achilles' injury. Since then, we haven't seen what he can do. He is, however, aware that players coming off of lost seasons are sometimes forgotten.

"There's not much out there to be talked about. It's my job to go out there and do what I do, and I can't do that right now, so I shouldn't be talked about. I plan on getting back out there and showing what I can do."

Siler and Belcher competing at inside linebacker was one of my eight things to watch for at the Chiefs mandatory minicamp.

Devon Wylie has a hamstring injury

He didn't practice today. Hamstrings usually aren't serious -- just need some time to rest. Hopefully that's the case with Wylie, but we won't really know because the Chiefs don't have to address injured players during the offseason.
