The Kansas City Chiefs had four players — wide receiver Tyreek Hill, safety Jordan Lucas, running back Damien Williams and linebacker Damien Wilson — return to the practice field on Wednesday.
It appeared that Hill participated in full, while Lucas, Williams and Wilson took part in partial practice as they ease their way back from injury. Hill had been given a few additional days off to recover from the quad contusion he suffered when he collided with cornerback Bashaud Breeland back on July 30. Lucas and Williams had been out since the second day of training camp due to hamstring injuries.
Carlos Hyde, Darrel Williams and Darwin Thompson received top-team snaps at running back during 11-on-11 periods before Damien Williams made his way into the mix toward the end of the workout.
Easing players back into on-field work is no surprise, per our in-house injury expert, Aaron Borgmann.
With top defensive ends Frank Clark, Emmanuel Ogbah and Alex Okafor out for various reasons, Tanoh Kpassagnon, Robert McCray and Breeland Speaks all saw time with the first team. Wide receiver Gehrig Dieter missed yet another practice due to back spasms.
The Chiefs resume practice on Thursday at 8:15 a.m. Arrowhead Time.
