Reports from around the web from Thursday at Chiefs' camp.

The Kansas City Chiefs wrapped another day of training camp practice on Thursday, and the end result was a nice day without any major news.

Wide receiver Chris Conley and running back Keshawn Hill both missed practice today. Conley is considered day-to-day per team reports, so it's unknown when he'll return to the field. Ramik Wilson and Demetrius Harris also sat out practice.

As for the players on the field, the highlight of today's practice might be that back-up quarterback Chase Daniel lined up at running back since the team was thin due to veterans not yet reporting.

You can read the full report on Chase as RB from Terez Paylor at the Star, but the highlight was reading about his former days as a two-way threat in high school, when he was called "White Lightning."

A few rookies spent some time with the media, including first-round pick Marcus Peters. Some of the highlights:

Fifth-round selection James O'Shaughnessy spoke about facing off against Eric Berry in practice.

"It's awesome," O'Shaughnessy said. "He's obviously one of the best safeties in the league. He can cover, he can hit. I've been watching him since he was in Tennessee, and you can just tell when you go against him, it's a little bit different than anybody else."

The Chiefs might be looking to O'Shaughnessy to fill in the gap created by Anthony Fasano's exit as well as Harris' injury. However, the rookie realizes he's got a long way to go before creating any such expectations.

"I think it's early. I don't want to get ahead of myself," he said. "It's the second day of rookie camp, so I wouldn't want to go too far in saying that until we're two weeks into our first couple preseason games and see how I'm really performing with the pads on in front of the people against other people."

The Chiefs open up the first practice to the public coming up on August 1. You can see the full schedule and details here.
