The Chiefs have concluded training camp with only a few players injured.

The Kansas City Chiefs conducted their 16th (and last) training camp practice on Wednesday morning. The Kansas City Star’s Herbie Teope reported that as was the case on Tuesday, offensive guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif was in the rehab area, working with trainers on his hand injury.

As practice began, offensive lineman Kyle Long and defensive end Frank Clark were both absent. There was no indication about the presence of linebacker Malik Herring, — who, like Long, remains on the team’s offseason injury lists.

Clark’s absence was not surprising. During Tuesday’s practice, he aggravated his hamstring injury. Later on Tuesday, NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported that Clark would be getting an MRI to determine the extent of the injury.

Still, after practice ended, Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said that he didn’t believe it was a significant injury.

After practice began, there was a scary incident with wide receiver Tyreek Hill — which lasted just a few minutes.

After the session, Reid also reported that defensive tackle Derrick Nnadi had also missed Wednesday’s practice after leaving Tuesday’s session with his hip flexor injury.

Reid then said that Kyle Long has had surgery for his injury.

Long’s issue had first been described as a “leg injury.” More recently, it has been listed as a knee problem.

Neither reporters or Reid mentioned defensive end Demone Harris, who left Tuesday’s practice with an issue involving an oblique muscle. He is presumed to have been back on the field for Wednesday’s final camp practice.
