Pre-Camp Reads: Looking at CB Phillip Gaines from

On the last day of Chiefs minicamp, Chiefs head coach Andy Reid was asked about the defensive back picture, and he admitted that ultimately Gaines has the starting nod headed into St. Joseph.

"Gaines, I think when it's all said and done, he'll probably be the guy at the corner spot," he said. "We'll see, Coop (Marcus Cooper) had some good snaps there and Nelson had some good snaps. We'll see, we'll see how it goes."

Chiefs Community Caring Team Makes Stops in Omaha, Wichita from

The team's time in Omaha concluded with the unveiling of newly renovated ball fields, which benefitted from last year's Red Friday sales in Omaha. CFO Dan Crumb, who was recently named one of the Kansas City Business Journal's CFOs of the year, made the trip to Omaha for the ceremony.

"Omaha certainly has a lot of Kansas City Chiefs fans," Omaha mayor Jean Stothert explained. "We are very grateful for what the Chiefs have done. Last year, when we announced this, it was a big day for Omaha, and to see the sign unveiled and the work done, it means so much to this community, this area and especially the kids that are here."

Analyzing the Chiefs' training camp roster by position from The Kansas City Star

The Chiefs have 90 players on their roster for training camp, which starts July 26 when rookies and quarterbacks report to Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph.

Camp, however, really gets going with the first full-squad workout July 30, and the roster will shrink to 53 before the season opener Sept. 11 against the San Diego Chargers at Arrowhead Stadium.

Here's a breakdown of the camp roster by position, with analysis.

Early-season Chiefs' opponents could be in a weakened state from ESPN

This morning comes word that Pittsburgh's Le'Veon Bell will be suspended for the season's first four games for a violation of the NFL's substance-abuse policy. The Steelers' fourth game of the season is on Oct. 2 in Pittsburgh against the Chiefs.

Pittsburgh will also be missing one of their other top offensive players, Martavis Bryant, in that game. Bryant has been suspended for the season.

Meanwhile, the Chiefs' third opponent of the season, the New York Jets, remains without quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. He is unsigned, meaning the Jets could be quarterbacked by Geno Smith in their Sept. 25 game against the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium.

NFL clock ticking as J.J. Watt works way back from surgery from The Houston Chronicle

The disk is the soft tissue that separates vertebrae in the spine, Anand said. It serves as a "shock absorber" between each vertebra. Collisions on the field and lifting heavy weights are among the many reasons a disk could become injured, he said.

While all injuries and circumstances are different, one recent point of comparison was last season when Kansas City defensive tackle Dontari Poe had disk surgery on July 15. He missed all of camp but was back for the Chiefs' opener. He later said he wasn't at 100 percent until midseason.

Know Your Foe: Kansas City Chiefs from

What will worry Chiefs fans the most? - If the second-leading receiver on the team is Jamaal Charles. They must get something out of the second receiver on this team, be it Albert Wilson, Chris Conley or one of the others on the roster. Kelce and Charles will get targeted and targeted often, but the emergence of a true second receiving threat can transform this offense. If it doesn't happen, then this offense is at its ceiling currently. Keep an eye on rookies Tyreek Hill and Demarcus Robinson. Both had troubled stays in college but have outrageous skill level. They'll find a way to impact this offense, somehow, in 2016.

MWSU Gets Ready for Chiefs Training Camp from St Joe Channel

With the Kansas City Chiefs starting training camp in a week, crews at Missouri Western have been busy getting everything ready before they head to town.

"No question it's a major undertaking, but I think it's one the University looks forward to every year," Brett Esely, MWSU Associate Director of Athletics for External Relations, said.

For the seventh year, crews are working to get everything off the trucks and in the right place before practice. Officials say this calls for a lot of cooperation and organization.

Fantasy Football Rankings: Chiefs Players You Should Draft, Avoid This Season from NESN


Cairo Santos, Kicker: He scored the eighth-most fantasy points among kickers last season but is going undrafted behind 16 other kickers. That's absurd! He's way better than 41-year-old San Francisco 49ers kicker Phil Dawson, who actually is being drafted.

New development plans in store for Seaport Marina Hotel in Long Beach from The Long Beach Press Telegram

Since then, some have called for the property owner to restore the mid-century modern hotel to its former glory days — when it was the Edgewater Inn at PCH and 2nd Street, a place frequented by locals and celebrities from afar.

When the Kansas City Chiefs and Green Bay Packers traveled to Los Angeles for Superbowl I in 1967, the competing teams stayed at the Edgewater, hotel officials have said. And when Elvis Presley swiveled his hips at the Long Beach Arena, he called this hotel his waterfront home. But the property has lost its luster since its extravagant opening in the summer of 1963.
