The Kansas City Chiefs are just ending the first practice of their final two-a-day of camp. Not much exciting today, except for the addition to the tight end group.

Here are a few general highlights:

  • Tyler Thigpen didn't participate in the morning session
  • LS Thomas Gafford took reps with the tight ends
  • Chiefs practiced against a simulated Vikings defense 
  • Mike Brown after swatting down a Cassel pass: "Where's the tissue?  Where's the tissue?  Keep crying!"

As always, we'll update this post when the UWRF reports come in.
