The afternoon Kansas City Chiefs training camp updates are rolling in. We'll update this post as more info comes in.

For now, a few highlights:

  • D. Bowe is still struggling
  • Demorrio Williams is practicing for the first time this camp
  • Five Chiefs sat out today rehabbing

More on today's training camp practice, after the jump.

General Stuff

  • 81 degrees, 40% humidity and just a few clouds with a slight breeze
  • 24 packages of 24 bottles of Gatorade were delivered today which should last the rest of camp (UWRF)


  • WR Dwayne Bowe continues to struggle. When the Chiefs receivers were working on catching the ball while being hit by two coaches, Bowe was 0-6. He was the only receiver that didn't catch at least one pass. (Bob Gretz at CBS Sports)
  • Amani Toomer had a nice catch over the middle during 11 on 11 (Josh Looney at the Mothership)
  • One of the biggest highlights of watching camp practices are the OL/DL one-on-one drills. Today was a great segment as C Rudy Niswanger stuck out as having a good round. Niswanger and DT Tank Tyler took a ton of reps against one another and both battled hard. (Josh Looney at the Mothership)
  • The O has made a number of nice place on their way to the red zone, but the defense continues to step up and keep the offense out of the promise land. (Josh Looney at the Mothership)
  • And the jinx comes right away as QB Tyler Thigpen hits WR Dwayne Bowe for a 35-yard TD. Bowe made a juggling catch, the type he has seemed to do best over his first two years in KC. (Josh Looney at the Mothership)
  • Thigpen hit Jeff Webb for a completion.  Ricky Price then hit Webb, who fumbled the ball (UWRF)
  • Haley yelled at Dantrell Savage several times for not running hard (UWRF)
  • Javarris Williams lost his shoe on a play but completed it before running back to pick it up (UWRF)
  • More on Bowe's problems catching the ball in traffic: "Bowe was forced to repeat the drill multiple times but was unable to come up with a catch. Wide Receivers Coach Dedric Ward finally had enough and moved on."  (UWRF)
  • O-line coach Bill Muir to the line during a drill: "I am (freaking) tired of you peoples’ (crap)!” Muir said. (UWRF)


  • Chiefs ILB Monty Beisel returned to practice after missing five days with an unknown injury. (Bob Gretz at CBS Sports)
  • For the first time in this camp, Chiefs LB Demorrio Williams is dressed for practice. He missed the first 14 practices with an unspecified leg injury. (Bob Gretz at CBS Sports). 
  • Dion Gales and Derek Lokey both jumped offsides and had to run (UWRF)
  • Haley complimented the defense on getting to the quarterback so much (UWRF)
  • Thigpen fumbled a snap and Tank Tyler wrestled it away from Jackie Battle (UWRF)
  • Alphonso Boone knocked down two consecutive Cassel passes (UWRF)
  • Tyson Jackson and Alex Magee worked with Tim Krumrie in the heat after practice (UWRF)

Special Teams

  • Another good day for Chiefs rookie K Ryan Succop. He was 4 for 4, hitting from 33, 36, 40 and 44 yards. (Bob Gretz at CBS Sports)
  • Quinten Lawrence and Rodney Wright took all the returns today (UWRF)

Injuries/Not practicing

  • Five players are missing from Chiefs practice and working with the rehab team: RB Kolby Smith, ILB Zach Thomas, S DaJuan Morgan and OGs Wade Smith and Tavares Washington. (Bob Gretz at CBS Sports)
  • Brandon Albert left with the trainer for a few minutes but came back.  He sat out one-on-one blocking drills (UWRF)
