On Saturday morning, the Kansas City Chiefs posted a video on their official Twitter account, showing Chiefs players, coaches and executives arriving at Missouri Western University in St. Joseph, Missouri for training camp.
This weekend, only quarterbacks, rookies (and a few other selected players) have reported. They will be participating in closed practice sessions on Saturday, Sunday and Monday — although vaccinated members of the media will be allowed to observe. Arrowhead Pride’s Pete Sweeney is among them.
In-person press conferences will follow Saturday and Sunday’s practice sessions. We will have full coverage of both of them.
While they are not permitted to make live reports during these closed practices, reporters did set the scene for Saturday’s practice.
