The Kansas City Chiefs conducted their final practice of 2020’s training camp at Arrowhead Stadium on Saturday morning. Rain showers passing through the Kansas City area delayed the start of the session, which took place before a crowd of season ticket holders expected to reach 5,000 people.
The Chiefs provided coverage of the session — which included the raising a championship flag commemorating the team’s Super Bowl LIV victory — via YouTube.
The final day of work was a 10-10-10 practice, in which the team cycled through 10 offensive plays, 10 defensive plays and 10 minutes of special teams work. In the offensive portion, the defense acts as a scout team, giving the offense a chance to see how the plays will work in a best-case situation. Then the tables are turned in the defensive portion.
After missing practice with what the Chiefs described as a knee injury on Friday, starting center Austin Reiter was back on the field with the offense. Former Miami Dolphins center Daniel Kilgore — signed to the team this week — did not appear to be on the field.
Defensive end Demone Harris participated in practice on Friday, but missed Saturday’s session.
Otherwise, it was familiar list of players held out of practice — including defensive end Alex Okafor (calf), rookie offensive lineman Yasir Durant (head) and tight end Deon Yelder (groin).
Offensive lineman Martinas Rankin also missed the final practice. He spent the entirety of training camp on the team’s physically-unable-to-perform list.
In the post-practice virtual press conference, head coach Andy Reid, quarterback Patrick Mahomes and owner Clark Hunt are expected to speak.
