Day Two Minicamp Recap: What You Need to Know

News and notes from the second day of minicamp


The Kansas City Chiefs held their second practice of mandatory minicamp Wednesday in front of about 150 season ticket members, corporate partners and suite members for the team's "First Look" event.

Chiefs head coach Andy Reid and general manager John Dorsey spoke to the fans about the upcoming season after the practice.

Due to high temperatures in Kansas City, Reid moved the practice start time up to 11:15 a.m. from the originally planned 1:20 p.m.

Running back Jamaal Charles took the field for warmups and individual drills for the second day in a row.

Here is a list of players who didn't practice on Wednesday:

WR Kenny Cook
OL Laurent Duvernay-Tardif (sick)
CB Shannon Edwards (hamstring)
LB Tamba Hali (knee)
LB Justin Houston (knee)
TE Travis Kelce (sick)
CB D.J. White (hamstring)
WR Mike Williams (hamstring)


Quarterback Alex Smith found wide receiver Jeremy Maclin streaking down the sideline past cornerback Marcus Peters. The ball was beautifully thrown, travelling 40 yards in the air before hitting Maclin in stride for a touchdown.

Veteran WR Rod Streater continued to show he still has some speed to his game, outrunning a defensive back early on in practice.

Rookie QB Kevin Hogan flashed his arm capability on a long-distance throw to WR Tyreek Hill, who caught the ball in stride.

Running back Darrin Reaves made a nice catch down the sideline, fighting off a defender to come down with the ball.

QB Tyler Bray showed an ability to throw on the run late in practice. Bray, running to his left, found WR Frankie Hammond, who cradled the ball in the end zone.

There were two notable pick-6s on the day: Linebacker Dezman Moses tipped a Smith pass at the line, bobbled the ball, then took the ball back for a touchdown. Later in the practice, CB Steve Nelson made a great read and ran untouched into the end zone.

Here's what we learned from LB Justin March during Wednesday's media availability:
