Kansas City Chiefs News And Rumors 8/11

Following their preseason loss to the New Orleans Saints on Friday night, the Kansas City Chiefs are back in St. Joseph, Mo., for camp.

While this week will be great for the Chiefs in regard to building off the first team’s momentum established against the Saints, there is a bit of bad news to report.

Dave Skretta of AP SPorts brought us the news on Twitter:

While the immediate assumption would be that Fisher is out because of his injured thumb, it turns out this is actually because of a sore right shoulder, per Skretta:

Skretta also reported, via the Kansas City Star, that the offense did not look good:


The Chiefs offense struggled throughout the workout at Missouri Western as they got ready to play their first home preseason game Friday night against San Francisco. On several occasions, the group didn’t even get a play off before a whistle was blown.

Reid Ferrin of has a good piece out there on how there seems to be an air of accountability surrounding this team. Here’s a quote from cornerback Sean Smith, per Ferrin:

“We just have to hold everybody accountable,” Smith said.

“It would be easy for me and the rest of the starters to go out there and be like, ‘Well, at least we played good,’ but coach always preaches that you’re only as good as the last player on the roster. We have to pick each other up collectively, because we’re all one unit.”

It’s obvious that the Chiefs aren’t satisfied with the first team’s good showing on Friday night. Hopefully they’ll be able to work some of those kinks out in practice and get that tempo going again.
In regard to Fisher, at least it doesn’t seem serious, but it’s never good to hear that the first overall pick is struggling with two separate injuries at this point of the year.
