The Kansas City Chiefs began their 14th practice of training camp on Monday morning at Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph. It was a light unpadded practice.
The Kansas City Star’s Herbie Teope summarized which players were not participating.

Rookie linebacker Riley Cole and running back Elijah McGuire sustained ankle injuries during Saturday night’s preseason opener against the San Francisco 49ers. Both were present for Monday’s session, but did not participate in practice. Afterward, head coach Andy Reid said both of them were dealing with ankle sprains.
But two players who were injured during Saturday’s game — linebacker Darius Harris, wide receiver Marcus Kemp (shoulder) — were back at work Monday morning. So were previously unavailable defensive end Taco Charlton (hamstring), offensive lineman Mike Remmers (back), linebacker Willie Gay Jr. (concussion protocol) and cornerback BoPete Keyes (finger). All but Keyes had not played during Saturday night’s game.
Offensive lineman Kyle Long and linebacker Malik Herring — both suffering from knee issues — remained on the team’s injured lists, but were present and working with trainers.
Active players who were present but not participating in practice included guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif (hand), tight end Evan Baylis (ankle) and wide receiver Antonio Callaway (bone bruise). All have now missed a number of practices.
