Five Kansas City Chiefs — wide receiver Gehrig Dieter, safety Jordan Lucas, running back Marcus Marshall, offensive lineman Mitch Schwartz and running back Damien Williams — were held out of Tuesday morning practice in St. Joseph, Missouri. Cornerback Keith Reaser also missed practice but that was to be expected after the Chiefs announced they believe he might have torn his Achilles on Monday.
Cornerback Bashaud Breeland returned to the practice field with cast protection on his lacerated right thumb, as we explained would likely happen back on Saturday.
Wide receiver Tyreek Hill left practice early after colliding with Breeland in midair. The Chiefs later announced that Hill suffered a “quad contusion.” Our own in-house injury expert, Aaron Borgmann, covered what that means and provided a possible timetable for Hill.
Cameron Erving filled in for Schwartz at starting right tackle, and Carlos Hyde and Darwin Thompson mixed in with the first team at running back in Williams’ absence. Darrel Williams had a few opportunities there as well.
With the Chiefs scheduled for a shortened practice on Wednesday at 9:15 a.m. Arrowhead Time and their first day off scheduled for Thursday, there is reason to believe we won’t see most of these players back on the training camp practice field until Friday. That is especially true for Lucas, Marshall and Williams, per Borgmann.
As always, we will keep you updated here it Arrowhead Pride.
