Chiefs LB Mike Vrabel Returns to Practice

Good news and bad news this morning for the Kansas City Chiefs.  We'll start with the good news first, followed by the bad news.

Vrabel returns

LB Mike Vrabel returned to practice and was in pads according to Josh Looney of KCChiefs.com.  This is a big, big development because it had previously been reported that he was facing 3-5 weeks on the sidelines.  We're not sure how much he participated but the fact that he's out there is great news.

UpdateBob Gretz reports that it was Studebaker, not Vrabel, working with the first team defense.

Noteworthy returns from injury

RB Kolby Smith was out on the practice field running at full speed after suffering an injury that knocked him out of Sunday's game.

G Andy Alleman was back after not playing last weekend due to injury. He was replaced by Wade Smith last weekend but his participation today is encouraging for the Chargers game.

WR Chris Chambers was running fine after hurting his ribs in last weekend's game.

RB Dantrell Savage was back at it after missing last weekend's game with injury.

Injuries and Leggett not at practice

LB Justin Rogers was inactive last weekend due to injury and again did not participate today.

The big question mark right now is where was Maurice Leggett?  He wasn't out on the practice field today and he did suffer an injury on Sunday.  Looney said a Leggett update would be coming this afternoon.
