The Kansas City Chiefs were back on the field this week as Organized Team Activities (OTAs) got underway.
Three players - center Mitch Morse, wide receiver De’Anthony Thomas and running back Spencer Ware - were absent from the three-day practice period as they continued to work their way back from injuries sustained last season.
Head Coach Andy Reid spoke about the three players on Thursday following practice.
“The guys that didn’t practice today are Mitch Morse, De’Anthony Thomas and Spencer Ware,” Reid said. “They’re all coming off surgeries and they’re doing well, but right now they’re not going to practice during this period.”
Morse suffered a foot sprain in Week 2 of last year, causing him to miss five weeks of action, and once again hurt his foot in Week 13, ending his season. Thomas broke his leg in Kansas City’s regular-season finale, and Ware was lost in the preseason to a knee injury.
One player that was on the field for OTAs was safety Eric Berry, who missed nearly all of last season after rupturing his Achilles tendon in the 2017 season opener.
“It’s great to have him out here,” Reid said of Berry. “He’s one of our leaders and it’s great to have him healthy. He’s flying around and doing a great job.”
