The Kansas City Chiefs got some good news at Sunday’s training camp practice. DL Chris Jones is off the PUP list and back on the practice field, according to reports from camp (Pete isn’t up at camp today but will be Monday)

This is great news. Jones had knee surgery in July and the Chiefs never really gave a timeline but I didn’t get the sense they expected him to miss games. That he’s practicing now with three-plus weeks until the opener in New England is encouraging.
The Chiefs recently signed DL Roy Miller which made some of us wonder if that was a sign that Jones would be out longer than expected. He indicated that was not the case.
The good news doesn’t stop there. Travis Kelce being back out there is huge news. He had missed several days in a row last week after his knee flared up. The same knee he had surgery on a few years ago so I was a little worried this could be A Thing.
The Chiefs next game is on Saturday.
