Kansas City Chiefs Injury Updates and Wednesday Practice Review

The Kansas City Chiefs practiced in shorts and shells Wednesday leading into their scheduled day off on Thursday.

"Today was a 10-10-10 practice," Reid said in his opening statement.

10-10-10 practices are designed to be less strenuous than padded practices and give the first, second and third teams each 10 reps per drill.

"It was all execution," Reid added. "I always like to give an extra shout out to our scout team for giving the looks we need, so our offense can execute their plays. It's an opportunity for us to look at things that our defense and offense doesn't run, but we'll see during the season from other teams."

Opponents' schemes vary across the league, so the scout team gives the Chiefs an chance to see defenses other than their own.

"We're going to play teams that are cover two," Reid said. "We'll take the time to practice going against those formations that we'll see down the road, or we can work different situations like an all-screen period where we work on different screen plays.

"We've got a little freedom to work on different looks with the scout team."

Injury Updates

  • Wide receiver Albert Wilson (calf strain) and safety Daniel Sorensen (foot sprain) did not practice but were seen on the side working out with the strength and conditioning team.
    • Fullback Anthony Sherman did not practice.
    • Offensive lineman Parker Ehinger, who left Tuesday's practice early with a foot sprain, returned to the field Wednesday.
    • Reid was asked about running back Jamaal Charles and linebacker Tamba Hali, who have yet to practice this training camp: "I don't [have an update]. We're literally taking it day by day and seeing how they're doing. That's where we're at on those two."
