Kansas City Chiefs head coach Todd Haley went on his weekly visit on SiriusXM NFL Radio with Adam Schein and Rich Gannon this morning and had some interesting things to say about WR Jonathan Baldwin, who has been out with a thumb injury since the middle of August.
"I'm excited to get Baldwin going," Haley said. "I think he should be out there today practicing for the first real, you know, other than a limited capacity. I expect him to be out there working so we'll have to see how it goes with him but he should be out there."
It was a little hard to understand exactly what he was saying but I think he was indicating that Baldwin will be out there practicing in a full capacity for the first time today. Baldwin has been limited in practice the last two weeks so something "other than a limited capacity" would be a full capacity.
"He's been working really hard on the side," Haley said. "While we're running plays for the last month and a half, he stands over and we have a coach reading the script of plays to him. He breaks the huddle when we break the huddle, he runs every route, and I think he's in real good condition. He basically just had his OTA period, Rich."
Baldwin's injury is to his thumb which means he can still practice the routes with the offense.
"It's the one thing with it not being something that hampered his ability to run he's been able to get a lot of meaningful reps and the comfort level should be increased. I'm excited to see how he develops into this mix now."
