Kansas City Chiefs Minicamp: Day One Recap

The Kansas City Chiefs completed day one of a three-day minicamp on Tuesday. Here’s some of the notes and observations of people who were there.

FOUR TRYOUT PLAYERS

The Chiefs invited four players, one of which was a former Missouri player, to participate in minicamp on a tryout basis. None of them are under contract. Terez A. Paylor has the names.

Former Mizzou cornerback Kip Edwards, cornerback Quinton Byrd, receiver Mark Harrison and receiver Cole Stanford were invited to participate in the team’s three-day mandatory minicamp.

Paylor notes Byrd is wearing Brandon Flowers old number, 24.

DE’ANTHONY THOMAS MOVES AROUND THE FIELD, THEN GETS SICK

De’Anthony Thomas returned to the Chiefs after finally completing is school work at Oregon, and, as predicted, he began to get some reps at wide receivers in addition to some time at running back.

However, it appears the heat is going to take some getting used to for Thomas.

TRAVIS KELCE AND KYLE WILLIAMS BOTH PRACTICE

After sitting out the 10 voluntary practices over the last few weeks, but Kelce and Williams were back on the field after recovering from their offseason surgeries. Kelce is coming off of a microfracture surgery while Williams had his ACL repaired.

QUARTERBACK BATTLE STILL FORMING

It is very early in the process but we got a little bit of insight into how the quarterback battle is going.

One would think Murray is a lock to make the team, so the real battle is likely between Bray and Daniel (unless the Chiefs keep four quarterbacks). For his part, Bray looked solid on Tuesday.

SO, JUNIOR HEMINGWAY

DEMETRIUS HARRIS

Demetrius Harris is still turning heads at practices, hauling in some nice passes. He still dropping his fair share of throws, so keep that in mind.
