Chiefs Training Camp: Checking In With Ryan Succop

Relative to the rest of the team, there's not a whole lot punters and kickers can do during training camp.

Kickers and punters don't want to wear out their legs so Ryan Succop and Dustin Colquitt don't have near the workout that the rest of the team does during a typical training camp practice. Last year the Chiefs had long snapper Thomas Gafford get some work at tight end and fullback so he had some non-special teams work.

The Chiefs don't have competition for either position in camp so it's their job to lose during camp but the Chiefs seem pretty happy with both.

Succop talked with the media following Tuesday afternoon's practice about training camp life. Audio comes from

On the heat:

"It's warm out there there's no question. It's not too bad for Dustin [Colquitt], Thomas [Gafford] and I but for the other guys I know it's extremely tough. Those other guys are definitely working hard to stay cool."

On knowing the Chiefs could bring in competition for him:

"That's kind of understood. I understand that. I think that's just how the NFL is in general."

On trying to be the leading scorer on the team again:

"That's not something I really think about a whole lot. I just want to make my kicks, and kick off well and make the team."
