Kansas City Chiefs Notes: Sean McGrath Pondering Retirement, Sean Smith On Second Team, Sanders Commings Hurt?

It may be day one of training camp but the Kansas City Chiefs are already dealing with some roster issues. First, Nick Jacobs is reporting he has contacts suggesting Sean McGrath is contemplating retirement. He was not at practice today.

McGrath played in all 16 games last season, starting 10 of them, after injuries destroyed the Chiefs tight end depth chart. McGrath, who is also the team’s backup long snapper, caught 23 passes for 302 yards and two touchdowns in 2013. He will be battling Demetrius Harris for the third tight end spot if he decides to not retire.  

In addition to McGrath not being at practice, Sanders Commings did not participate in practice and instead was found hanging out on the sidelines with the players who are the PUP list. The PUP list currently includes David VanDyke and Joe McKnight.  

Commings missed virtually all of last season due to injury, with his first injury being a broken collar bone he suffered in the first week of training camp. It is not known what the severity of his injury or if it even is an injury at the moment.

Rokevious Watkins is not at practice today. He is due to be suspended for violating the league’s substance abuse policy to start the season.

Finally, Sean Smith is still running with the second team on defense.

Ron Parker and Marcus Cooper are the two starting cornerbacks.
