The Kansas City Chiefs OTA schedule continues after the Memorial Day holiday. The Chiefs will get back on the field today and practice for four consecutive days, the longest consecutive-day stretch of OTAs this offseason. That's May 28-31 on the field and then again on June 4-6 for the mandatory minicamp which is, uh, mandatory for veterans.
Look for daily round-ups on the Chiefs practices each afternoon. Practice is at 11:20 a.m. (Arrowhead Time) each day and throughout the week we can expect to hear from Andy Reid, various players as well as both coordinators. That's notable because we haven't yet talked to the coordinators.
As a reminder, some of the practice rules in this phase of the offseason:
-All coaches are allowed on the field.
-No live contact is allowed
-No one-on-one offense vs. defense drills are permitted (i.e., no offensive linemen vs. defensive linemen pass rush or pass protection drills, no wide receivers vs. defensive backs bump-and-run drills, and no one-on-one special teams drills involving both offense and defense are permitted).
-Special teams drills (e.g., kicking team vs. return team) are permitted, provided no live contact occurs.
-Team offense vs. team defense drills ... are permitted, provided no live contact occurs.
-Teams may require players to wear helmets; no shells are permitted
Things to keep an eye on:
1. Is Dexter McCluster OK? He went down with a hamstring injury last week. The last we heard he was supposed to be fine.
5. The pistol: Will we see it again? How much?
