Quick note before we get started. Reports our of camp yesterday indicate that TE Tony Moeaki is out of the rehab area and back on the field. That is certainly good news. Moeaki has microscopic knee surgery in the offseason. We’ll have more Chiefs camp coverage today. Until then, here is your Morning Fix!
It’s unlikely Moeaki would play in Friday night’s preseason opener against Tampa Bay at Arrowhead Stadium but Haley didn’t rule out the possibility.
“I’m really going day by day,” Haley said. “That’s going to work well for us. I think it will keep us from getting ahead of ourselves and maybe doing something we might regret down the road.”
You’re about to hear from Tamba Hali, in his own words for the first time this year, so prepare yourself accordingly. This is the only place you can hear from him, a major scoop for this column, because the Chiefs’ star linebacker is on a vow of silence.
Sheffield did not get up. For awhile he could not move his arms and legs. There was a period as he lay on the Arrowhead grass where he blacked out, although he does remember the hit on Bell. He passed in and out of consciousness. He can’t remember being strapped on the back board by paramedics. He has a hazy recollection of teammates coming over the touch him. “I know that happened because I’ve got a picture of it,” Sheffield said.
“I feel good about how that group has worked thus far,” coach Todd Haley said. “It’s really good to have a guy like Casey Wiegmann back because we do have some young guys we’re counting on to step up. Between him and Branden Albert, there’s some good leadership there that’s really helping those young guys come along.
“Across the board, I’m encouraged by what I see so far for as little as we’ve been in pads.”
