Jamaal and Dexter are healthy
A couple of quick notes from Chiefs mini-camp: Jamaal Charles was backand a full participant in practice after injuring a toe last week— Adam Teicher (@adamteicher) June 4, 2013
Dexter McCluster was a full participant after missing the team portion of several practices because of a sore hamstring . . .— Adam Teicher (@adamteicher) June 4, 2013
Let's start from the beginning...
Two weeks ago Dexter McCluster went down with a hamstring injury at the end of practice. Andy Reid said after practice he thought McCluster would be back the following week. Except ... he wasn't. He was limited last week and finally, today, he has returned in full. This is good news because hamstrings are the types of injuries that can linger if they don't heal properly. Let's hope that's not the case with DMC.
As for Jamaal .... double whew. He hurt his toe last week and when you see the words "Jamaal Charles" and "injury" in the same sentence, you're liable to give more than a few Chiefs fans a heart attack. Luckily though x-rays on the toe back negative and Charles returned today for the first day of minicamp. He's fine.
Now, no more injury scares, please.
Couple players missing
#Chiefs WR Terrance Copper had a hip flexor and wasn't there. LB Mike Catapano was graduating from Princeton and absent.— Dave Skretta (@APdaveskretta) June 4, 2013
If you have gone to a graduation ceremony this year, please tell us in the comments what school and what year (elementary, high school, college) it was. I haven't gone to a single one this year ... which means I'm old enough to have friends who aren't in school anymore and young enough that our friends' kids aren't graduating yet.
Terrance Copper should be THE example to undrafted free agents on how to stay in the NFL for a frickin' decade. Impressive career for him given he's mainly a special teamer.
Clark and Dick visit practice
Hunt and Vermeil, that is.
#Chiefs CEO Clark Hunt visited first day of mandatory minicamp. Dick Vermeil also took in practice with GM John Dorsey.— Dave Skretta (@APdaveskretta) June 4, 2013
Topics of conversation between Dick Vermeil and John Dorsey ... GO!
These damn kids and their music...
Today's practice playlist: Wiz Khalifa, Jay Z, Shop Boys, Jim Jones, Archie Eversole. Asked what he'd pick, Andy Reid said: "Lawrence Welk"— Dave Skretta (@APdaveskretta) June 4, 2013
