This is very good news for the Chiefs defense.

Kansas City Chiefs general manager Brett Veach said that if it were the regular season, starting inside linebacker Reggie Ragland would be playing, according to Nate Taylor of The Athletic.

In the report, Veach said Ragland did some turf workouts he shouldn’t have this offseason, and that’s how his knee swelled up. The Chiefs have held him out all of training camp as a grand precaution.

“If we were playing (a regular-season game) this week, he’d be out there,” Veach said, per Taylor. “We just have so much time left in camp. It’s funny because we started last Thursday and today is Tuesday. It feels like he’s missed, like two months because we’re out there every day and meeting every day.”

One of the great things about Veach being in Kansas City is he is especially candid when it comes to seemingly any topic, and he was here with Ragland.

Ragland not practicing yet has led many of us to wonder what has been going on, and now we know that we should see Ragland in the coming days.

While Ragland’s been out, Ukeme Eligwe and Terrance Smith have been mixing in next to Anthony Hitchens.
