Top Plays from Wednesday's practice

While there wasn't any live contact as the players were in shorts, there were a handful of plays that got a rise from the crowd on Wednesday morning.

During one of the special teams periods, punter Dustin Colquitt, who ranks No. 1 in franchise history in career punts downed inside the 20-yard line (316), gave his teammates some practice at pinning teams deep in their own territory.

Frankie Hammond, Marcus Cooper and Tello Luckett all made fantastic plays in this drill as each caught the ball in the air within two yards of the goal line.

It's often a momentum-changing play in a game and we saw the Chiefs working on it Wednesday morning.

But the best play of the day was a diving interception from safety Eric Berry, who was able to grab a deflected Aaron Murray pass by laying out for it before it hit the ground and gave the crowd their biggest ovation of the day.

After practice, Berry was one of the last players to leave the field as he was signing autographs for Chiefs Kingdom.
