Chiefs Training Camp: Tony Moeaki, Ryan Lilja, Others Make Their Return

New, comments

The Kansas City Chiefs for the first couple weeks of training camp were strangely healthy. While teams like the Falcons listed 8, 9, 10 and more players on the injury report, the Chiefs went to Atlanta with just three.

Since the Atlanta game, it's caught up with them with several offensive linemen (and a quarterback) sitting out practice. The injuries apparently aren't serious because a few of them returned on Tuesday, according to Josh Looney of

Ryan Lilja returned. He missed Monday afternoon's practice. More than likely, this was just a veteran's day off. Lilja didn't have any noticeable injury.

Barry Richardson also returned which is big news for the offensive line. At this point, it looks like he's going to be the swing tackle so if any of the tackles are hurt, even for a few plays, Richardson would be the guy to hop in.

Tony Moeaki was also back in the fold. He had missed well over a week of practice after suffering an injury in the Chiefs scrimmage a week-and-a-half ago. His injury was just a minor one. It'll be good for the Chiefs to get him back and ready for Saturday's game against the Bucs.

Jake O'Connell also returned to practice. He missed Friday's night because of an unspecified injury.
