Offensive Line Shocker?


Either this is a misprint or the Chiefs have pulled a shocker at day one of training camp. From the UW-RF camp site:

First round draft pick Branden Albert was in on every first string snap at left guard. Brian Waters was at left tackle, Adrian Jones was at right tackle and Damion McIntosh was at right guard with the first unit. Third-year center Rudy Niswanger snapped for the first stringers to round out the Chiefs’ first practice offensive line.

I’m thinking it’s a mistake, and that the writer switched the guards and tackles, but who knows? Jones has always been a tackle, and the Chiefs might be protecting Albert while playing their best lineman at LT for now. We’ll be looking into this, but if anybody else has anything let us know.

Update: Warpaint Illustrated is reporting the Chiefs line as previously reported. It looks like the UW-RF website must have just goofed. From WPI:

Kansas City’s starting five on the offensive line remains, left to right, Branden Albert, Brian Waters, Rudy Niswanger, Adrian Jones and Damion McIntosh. Albert, KC’s second first-round pick, showed no ill effects from the ankle he sprained earlier this offseason, and was light on his feet.

Other notes of interest are that Devard Darling started off as the No. 2 receiver for the first-string offense, and Dwayne Bowe was so “giddy” to be back that he was playing free safety for the scout team defense. D-Bo is definitely a character, isn’t he?
