“Camp is camp,” said Smith, who checked in at Missouri Western State University straight from playing in the American Century Golf Championship at Stateline, Nev. “But this is my first time going away for camp.”

Smith was eager to get on the field Tuesday, even though it will be with about 40 rookies, first-year players and selected veterans coming off injuries, most of whom will not crack the 53-man roster.

“I think it’s great,” Smith said, “because we’ve had six weeks off, and as far as the quarterbacks go, we can work out and we can throw to receivers, but you can’t really simulate seven-on-seven or 11 on 11, so it’s a few days of work to get back into things, so when the rest of the guys get here, we’re already hitting the ground running.”

Kirsten Krug, the Chiefs’ vice president of administration, will oversee the department. She will work alongside B.J. Stabler, who has experience in crisis management.

Last season, Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher shot his girlfriend to death and then drove to the team’s practice facility. Belcher then shot himself in the head while general manager Scott Pioli, coach Romeo Crennel and assistant coach Gary Gibbs watched from the parking lot.

Chiefs president Mark Donovan said in a statement Monday the franchise worked with the NFL to restructure its player engagement department with ideas taken from around the league.
