We've got Bob Gretz's CBS updates and some Twitter stuff to go on for camp's sixth practice session. Of course, we'll be updating this post will all the info we can find about today's single practice by the Kansas City Chiefs.

Here are a few quick hits:

  • Glenn Dorsey was in full pads, making his training camp debut. Welcome Glenn!
  • DE Wallace Gilberry had a field goal block
  • New Chiefs WR Amani Toomer is already making plays

More for you, after the jump. Keep an eye out this post and we'll let you know when it's been updated.

General Stuff

  • A bit of a raucous crowd today as spontaneous clapping/cheering has erupted. Bobby Engram has now yelled, "Give me some energy," and the crowd has responded. (The Mothership)
  • The practice was very spirited and especially hard hitting in the run game segments. (


  • Chiefs coach Todd Haley spent extra time with the receivers again and admonished WR Dwayne Bowe for how he ran a pass route. (CBS Sports)
  • New Chiefs WR Amani Toomer made a nice leaping catch along the sidelines on a hot, high throw from QB Ingle Martin. (CBS Sports)
  • Today’s point of emphasis in situational work was clock management while nearing field goal range with no timeouts. (The Mothership)
  • BIG play- cassel splits safties on skinny post 2 rodney wright. 50 yards to the house (Josh Looney)
  • Quarterbacks rolling to the right hitting a target: Matt Cassel (1/5), Tyler Thigpen (1/3), Brodie Croyle (1/4) and Ingle Martin (1/4) (UWRF)
  • Quarterbacks rolling to the left hitting a target: Cassel (2/3), Thigpen (1/2), Croyle (2/3) and Martin (1/2) (UWRF)
  • Bowe caught a pass and was quickly tackled by Carr.  Haley yelled at him that he wants more finish. (UWRF)
  • Devard Darling caught a pass across the middle and was cheered by the coaches. (UWRF)
  • On second-and-five, Martin connected with fullback Jed Collins. Linebacker Corey Mays was not impressed, hollering, “Why the (freak) was he so wide open?” Haley didn’t appreciate Mays’ question, and said, “Quit (yelling) at each other and figure it out.” (UWRF)
  • After a Redd interception, Toomer didn't chase him down and Haley yelled at him. (UWRF)
  • Thigpen and Martin threw at targets in the corner of the end zone from 30 yards away.  Thigpen hit the target, but missed the bucket.  Martin only hit it after it bounced in front of it. (UWRF)
  • In one of the running drills, ILB Monty Beisel came up to stop RB Jackie Battle and connected on a good hit. But it was Beisel who was staggered as Battle ran right through him. (


  • Although the Chiefs have not announced a roster move, OLB Vince Redd is on the field wearing No. 98. He was claimed on waivers after being released by New England. (CBS Sports)
  • Back for the Chiefs afternoon session are two defensive starters: DE Glenn Dorsey and ILB Derrick Johnson. (CBS Sports)
  • Chiefs ILB Zach Thomas isn't taking part in the teamwork portion of practice. Corey Smith is working with the first-team defense. (CBS Sports)
  • Defensive end Alfonso Boone said to Defensive Line Coach Tim Krumrie after completing one round of the drill, “Scared of Ron (Edwards), huh?” Krumrie had apparently moved out of the way of 315-pound defensive tackle Ron Edwards. Krumrie kind of laughed and said, “Well, the big mother (freaker) hit me.” (UWRF)
  • Donald Washington was getting frustrated with himself in one drill but Clancy Pendergast told him, "That ain't bad, though." (UWRF)
  • Glenn Dorsey spent time after practice with Tim Krumrie getting off the line of scrimmage and hand placement (UWRF)
  • Vince Redd picked off a Croyle pass (UWRF)
  • The play of the practice came when Larry Johnson ran left and Derrick Johnson shot through a gap and tackled him for what would have been a three or four-yard loss. Big move, big play by DJ. (

Special Teams

  • Chiefs K Ryan Succop hit 3 of 4 FG attempts. His kick from 40 yards was blocked, but he hit from 31, 33 and 37 yards. (CBS Sports)
  • An update from the special teams world - K Ryan Succop knocks down his first three attempts in field goal period, but DE Wallace Gilberry ends the bid for a perfect four-of-four by getting a paw on the final attempt. (The Mothership)


  • Not practicing with the Chiefs on Tuesday were: RB Kolby Smith, TEs Brad Cottam and Tony Curtis, LBs Demorrio Williams and Wes Dacus, Gs Edwin Harrison (Reportedly released) and Wade Smith and S DaJuan Morgan. (CBS Sports)
  • LB Corey Smith left practice and headed to the exercise bikes with about 20 minutes left (UWRF)
  • ILB Zack Thomas started practice, but eventually ended up on the bike patrol with the rehab team. It appears he may have an injury to his upper left leg. (
