General stuff

  • The Chiefs worked on more goal line and short yardage situations, responding to last week's game against the Vikings. (Josh Looney at the Mothership)
  • Chiefs morning practice was mostly geared toward getting ready for Saturday's preseason game against Seattle. It's the most extensive work they've done in the preseason preparing for an opponent. (Bob Gretz at CBS Sports)

Offense

  • QB Brodie Croyle was looking very in sync with his receivers today. (Josh Looney at the Mothership)

Injuries
