After seeing a string of Kansas City Chiefs players note via Twitter that they're heading to Kansas City this week, we finally have a confirmation of what's going on.
According to Todd Leabo of 810 WHB in Kansas City, the players have announced that they'll be conducting a three-day minicamp this week. The first session is today and day two and three will come on Wednesday and Thursday of this week.
Practices will not be open to the fans and the location of the practices won't be disclosed. The players cite insurance reasons for closing it off as well as the need to focus on football. Media will be invited to camp on Thursday, June 16, and there will be interviews after so that'll be the day we hear from the players.
So far the lockout has cost the Chiefs their OTAs so this will be a way to make up at least some of that time. It's been so long (it seems at least) since we've seen this team together so I'm pretty excited about what's going down this week.
After the minicamp this week, some of the Chiefs players will join others in the organization for a trip to Joplin next week to assist in the tornado relief efforts.
