Kansas City Chiefs Minicamp Notes: Offensive Line, Injuries


Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

The Kansas City Chiefs are in the midst of their first official practice of the Andy Reid era. We have a few notes on some of the information coming out of practice so far.

The offensive line: 

Per Adam Tiecher, of the Kansas City Star, the starting offensive line lined up like this:

L-R: Sonald Stephenson, Jeff Allen, Rodney Hudson, Jon Asamoah, Geoff Schwartz

There is good news and bad news here. The good news is that Rodney Hudson is back and healthy from his broken leg.

The bad news is that Geoff Schwarz, who is probably better as a guard, is playing right tackle. It will be interesting to see if the Chiefs really want Schwartz to play the position or if they just have him there as a placeholder until they find their replacement for Eric Winston.

Also, Donald Stephenson is at LT, which means Branden Albert is continuing to sit out of practices. Albert has indicated that he will continue to do so until the Chiefs offer some clarity on his situation.


According to Teicher, every player on the roster, save Albert, is in attendance. He also reported on Twitter that everyone is participating except for the often injured Tony Moeaki. Apparently he recently had his knee scoped.
