Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said the team would mimic a regular season schedule this week.

"We're going to try and keep it as much a normal week within the rules of the NFL training camp rules as we possibly can," he said. "It's not quite the same schedule, but it's as close as we can get to it. [Monday] will be like a Wednesday practice, [Tuesday] will be like a Thursday practice, and so on. Then we're going to take it slow."

Reid provided an update on defensive tackle Dontari Poe.

"He's doing great," he said. "He's made big strides. I can't tell you. I can tell you he's at least on schedule if not a little bit ahead. He's had a great attitude with the whole thing."

Reid was then asked if there should be an expectation to see Poe back early.

"It's more we'll see," he explained. "Let's see how he does in this phase with the exercise part. So far it's gone well, but let's see how that goes. That's kind of where the doctors are at. He hasn't run, so we'll see in that next phase where that goes.

 "He's moving around and he hasn't had any setbacks, so I guess that's the positive thing."

Reid evaluated both running back Knile Davis and center Mitch Morse through the first two preseason games.

On Davis:"Knile, I think has improved," he said. "I think more in the pass game, we knew he was a good runner. In the pass game I think he's improved. He spent a lot of time working on that."

*On Morse: *"Well there's a comfort there; he's gotten more comfortable in that position," he said. "He had a pretty good defensive front he was going against, one of the best in the National Football League, so I thought he handled it pretty well."
