Mandatory Chiefs minicamp: Day 1 observations


Mandatory Chiefs minicamp: Day 1 observations

On Wednesday, the Kansas City Chiefs continued their three-day mandatory mini-camp at the team’s training facility on the grounds of the Truman Sports Complex.

A total of nine Kansas City players were absent from the required session. By the end of the day, we knew that one of them – defensive end Frank Clark – was on full minicamp leave because he’s expecting the birth of his next child. Most others are known (or suspected) to be involved with injuries.

Arrowhead Pride Pete Sweeney was among the media watching the session. He submitted his observations in a Twitter thread that contained additional information on injuries.

Williams and fellow rookie cornerback Trent McDuffie (who was among those absent on Wednesday) had both left the practice on Tuesday with obvious injuries. Now a wide receiver once again saw limited action.

But Fountain was also on the individual drills to which he was limited well done.

There was better news about two other wideouts who missed time at voluntary OTA sessions.

A Video posted by the Chiefs showed that the second-round rookie was in high spirits.

The media was not alone on Wednesday. Another audience was present for the session.

As he watched the practice, Sweeney saw heard home broadcast — pointing to Kansas City’s star tight end.

Quarterback Patrick Mahomes was there in front of an audience up to his usual tricks.

On another repetition Mahomes used a flash.

After practice Kansas City’s third-year linebacker talked about the quarterback.

Also gay mentioned being burned during Tuesday’s session.

At Wednesday’s team practice session, Jody Fortson-turned-wide-receiver-turned-tight-end – now back from his injury in 2021 – made a play.

Another tight ending caught Sweeney’s gaze.

In defense, Sweeney noted a defensive end as a sophomore.

Still…it was a safety novice who drew the most attention. (Editor’s note: Cook was actually selected in the second round with pick 30 of the round.)

Cook kept playing.

But cook wasn’t the only defender picking up passes.

Even a local player got into the action.

Speaking to reporters after training, the star of the team’s defensive called his teammates “gritty”.
