Now, the story at offensive tackle was not good on Wednesday. Not practicing on Wednesday were Jared Gaither and Ryan O’Callaghan. No official word on Gaither, but it appears to be a right knee problem. O’Callaghan’s problem is not known. Late in the team work portion of practice, RT Barry Richardson hobbled off the field with what appeared to be cramps. He did not return and was later taken to the locker room in the back of a cart, still apparently cramping.
That leaves the next man in line at right tackle as Lewis, undrafted out of Southern Cal, who has shown some moments of ability, but far more moments when he’s been overwhelmed. It will be interesting to see how fast Richardson and O’Callaghan can heal their problems. It’s a good bet all three Chiefs quarterbacks will be watching intently.
