7/27 Camp Recap: Competition All-Around At Chiefs Camp from The Mothership
The Kansas City Chiefs took the field on season ticket holder appreciation day Sunday morning on the campus of Missouri Western State University for training camp.
For the first time all camp, the Chiefs ran through a full live period where players blocked, tackled and offensive ball-carriers were taken to the ground. It was a nice display for the season ticket holders on hand, who appreciated the sight of real football and responded with cheers and applause as players got after it on the field.

On Sunday, Chiefs Season Ticket Members (STMs) were invited to spend the morning at Chiefs Training Camp presented by Mosaic Life Care.
Fans were greeted by Chiefs Cheerleaders and KC Wolf before heading inside to enjoy breakfast from Chris Cakes, infamous for their delicious pancakes that are tossed straight from the skillet to your plate.
They also had the opportunity to meet Chiefs Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt and some of the Ambassadors, including Shawn Barber and Anthony Davis.

On potentially seeing LBs
Dee Ford, Tamba Haliand Justin Houstonon the field at the same time: "Right now, we're just putting in a basic defense, both base and sub, so we haven't gotten to any of the big personnel groupings [yet]. But I'm sure at some point we're going to have all those guys out there. From the past, one of the things we do is anytime you have a unique skill, whether it's cover, rush [or] whatever, we're going to try to find a way to use that, whether we have to create a little personnel group to do that or whatever, we're going to attempt to do that. So I'm sure down the road we're going to try to figure out a way to get all those guys on the field."

Chiefs Camp Report: Day 4 from ESPN
Coach Andy Reid has said the Chiefs would take some practice snaps away from players who recently had surgery, and tight end Travis Kelce is among them. But taking some snaps away from Kelce is one thing and sitting him for an entire practice is another. Kelce spent his time working with other injured players away from the practice field. This looks to be an ominous sign for a player the Chiefs are counting on to provide a boost in their passing game. Kelce missed all of his rookie season last year with an ailing knee.
Injuries Mounting Through Four Days Of Camp from Chiefs Spin
Wide receiver Frankie Hammond provided the play of the day, perhaps the play of training camp through four practices. Hammond took a short pass from quarterback Chase Daniel on the right side of the field, juked a defender and cut across the grain towards the left sideline with defenders in pursuit. He found the left sideline, accelerated and took off for the end zone for a touchdown.
Chiefs Need To Hang On To QB Tyler Bray from ESPN
It's not a bad idea for the Chiefs to keep all four quarterbacks. It's an unconventional move but if it allows the Chiefs to retain Daniel, who played well in his one start last season, as well as their two developmental quarterbacks, it's the right decision.
Credit to the Chiefs for benching Smith, despite his considerable salary cap number of $5.75 million, if they didn't think he was deserving of a starting spot. But in a sense, the Chiefs, at least for the time being, have lost both of their starters from last year at a position where they weren't deep to begin with.
Team Preview: Kansas City Chiefs from National Football Post
My feeling is the Chiefs may not have enough to beat Denver for the division, but should once again be a wild card team. The key will be how they perform during the season series with rival San Diego.
Faith Comes Before Football For Chiefs Safety Husain Abdullah from KC Star via The Miami Herald
As a practicing Muslim, Abdullah does not eat or drink from sunrise to sunset during Ramadan, which this year runs from June 28 through Monday. If he needs it, he'll occasionally rinse his mouth or splash water on his lips.
Trainers give him cool towels to put on his head and neck during breaks. They open the cafeteria at Missouri Western State University, site of the Chiefs' training camp, at 4 every morning and help Abdullah plan what to eat and drink when the sun is down to be as safe as possible when the sun is out. He eats a big meal just after sunset, and another just before sunrise. In between, he wakes up for a protein shake. Any little bit of nourishment helps.

Her decision of whom she'd like to marry will air Monday night, and it's down to a contest between two attractive dudes of very different ilk. There's Nick Viall, the 33-year-old Chicago software sales executive with the smarmy smirk and inexplicable mental and physical connection with Dorfman.
Then there's fan favorite Josh Murray, the 29-year-old happy-go-lucky Atlanta-based brother of former University of Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray and financial services rep.
