The Kansas City Chiefs started their mandatory minicamp on Tuesday, and the first practice is in the books. Most importantly, no players had to leave the field with an injury. Any time that happens, the day has been a rousing success.
To the shock of absolutely nobody, outside linebacker Justin Houston was not in camp today and is continuing his holdout. Houston has yet to sign his franchise tag tender of $13.1 million, hoping to negotiate a long-term deal with general manager John Dorsey. The assumption is the two sides will come to a deal at some point before the July 15 deadline.
Everyone else was at practice, although wide receiver Albert Wilson was held out with his balky hamstring. Outside of Wilson, the other players were all up and running. Inside linebacker Derrick Johnson was a full participant while nose tackle Dontari Poe returning from his back ailment to practice in full.
