Reid was asked if he considers this a setback.
"I don't think so," Reid said. "He's played a lot of downs, and he knows what he needs to do to be ready. I think we'll be fine there. I think the important thing is that we're patient with him ... and keep him healthy."
Williams suggested he will make it work for the Chiefs where he couldn't his final year in Tampa Bay or during his one season with the Bills. "I think I'm training a lot more," Williams said. "I'm focused a lot more on my plays. They've got me in different positions. In Tampa, I only played one side. (The Chiefs) have me moving around."
Gaines said he now weighs 188 pounds, up from 181 a year ago.
"It's just a combination of me getting my lower body right," said Gaines, who had 20 tackles and four pass deflections as a rookie in 2014. "You know coming off an ACL you can't really work your legs, just the upper body, but when you do get a chance to work the lower body, (you) kind of fill back out."
Data collected at Arrowhead Stadium over the past season shows that a pre-paid parking pass can move through the tollgates up to twice as fast as a vehicle paying cash, with up to 14 prepaid pass vehicles processed in one minute vs. seven cash vehicles over the same period. Pre-paid parking passes may be purchased at the Chiefs Ticket Office or at www.chiefs.com/parking. Fans have the option to pre-purchase parking passes on a full season or game-by-game basis. All parking purchases are subject to applicable fees. Pre-paid single-game (Red) parking will be $30. Parking prices at the tollgates on gameday in 2016 will be $40 cash to incentivize purchasing in advance. The $40 cash parking fee is subject to change based on the game while the advanced purchase price of $30 is fixed, but limited. Continuing in 2016, Gate 5 will remain a pass-only gate.
"We don't baby them very much. It's as simple as it gets," Reynolds added. "They get a desk, a dresser, and two beds pushed together. And if they want to rent a mattress, if they want to get a TV, they know how to do it." Making their temporary home away from home "homier" is his recommendation. "I tell them all, bring your own toiletries, bring your sheets, your pillow makes it a little bit better of a night's rest," Reynolds said. "The rookies don't know that yet. But when the vets come in, you'll see them with 90 mattresses, TVs and video gaming systems. And then the rookies are kind of like, ‘Where can I get that?’"
Coach Andy Reid said the key for Williams is staying healthy. "We know he can play and his biggest thing is that he’s been banged up," Reid said. "If he can stay healthy, this is an offense that he can be very effective in. We’ll take it day by day and see how he does." During the first practice, Williams found himself facing off against cornerback Phillip Gaines, who is also working his way back from injury. Gaines was impressed with that he saw on day one.
