Arrowheadlines: Alex Smith to Tyreek Hill could be a thing this year

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes crushed the 2-minute drill. Let’s over-analyze and over-react | Arrowhead Pride

While there’s no all-22 to review of camp film (isn’t that just a dang shame, guys?), I thought that we’d sift through every snap of this march down the field and see if there’s ANYTHING we can glean from them. I’ll embed the tweet with the video, and then we’ll talk about each snap. Seriously, folks, football is back and it’s amazing that we’re doing this.

Good bye to the final week of no football this year | Niners Nation

The San Francisco 49ers have three training camp practices under their belt, and now sit just under two weeks away from their first preseason game of the schedule. The 49ers travel to face the Kansas City Chiefs on Friday, August 11.

Kansas City Chiefs training camp report | July 30, 2017 | The Kansas City Star

For the third straight practice, the offenses ruled the day during the 7-on-7 sessions. And once again, it was Tyreek Hill causing havoc in the secondary for the first and second team defense. On the first series for the ones, Alex Smith lofted a long touch pass down the left sideline, and Hill ran under it to secure the catch and ultimately six points.

First down, Chiefs, and score one for Hill, who is now the odds-on favorite to lead the Chiefs’ receivers in targets following Jeremy Maclin’s release in June.

For Justin Houston to dominate, his string of injuries has to end | ESPN

"My expectations are higher," Houston said. “I want to be more dominant than I’ve ever been. That’s my goal. That’s my plan and I’m going to work until I get there.”

For that to happen, Houston has to stay in the lineup for a full season. That’s been a problem for him. He played in all 16 games in 2014, but in three of the last four years he’s been limited to partial seasons -- no more than 11 games -- because of injuries.

Chiefs' Dee Ford on Tamba Hali: 'He’ll always be my big bro’ | The Kansas City Star

On Sunday, after the Chiefs’ third training camp practice of the year, linebacker Dee Ford was asked for his thoughts about Hali’s comments.
