The Arizona Cardinals are coming to town to visit the Kansas City Chiefs during training camp today. The Cardinals will practice on the campus of Missouri Western State University today and tomorrow, and perhaps even Thursday.
There is a walk-through scheduled for 10:30 a.m. (Arrowhead Time) and a joint practice on Tuesday at 3:15 p.m. (Arrowhead Time). The Chiefs and Cardinals are not scheduled to practice together on Wednesday, so today is your day to see both teams.
A few notes on the practice:
It'll cost $5 to park and $5 to get in. This is one of the few days where the Chiefs charge an admission price to get in.
Romeo Crennel has been an assistant coach when other teams visited his training camp. "For instance, when I was at New England and we played the Giants in the first preseason game, they came up early and we worked against them. Then we played them in the game. Then there was a situation where we played a team first, then they stayed over and we worked against them after the game. When those situations arise and they work for both teams, I think those are good to do."
How many reps will the ACL crew get? "They will get some," Crennel said. "Not exactly sure how many they're going to get. In talking with [Cardinals head coach] Ken [Whisenhunt], he wants to take a look at everybody on his team as well against us. We'll probably try to divide it up and give the first guys a few more reps than we give the third guys, for instance. But, we're going to try to look at everybody."
Today will be more of a practice than a scrimmage with the Cardinals. ""They are going against somebody different and they don't know these guys. Generally when you go against somebody different those juices get revved up a little bit, so there will be more adrenaline flowing than a regular practice."
