On Sunday there were a lot less fans than the day before but there was still a crowd of a couple thousand fans on hand to watch the last Chiefs practice before the pads come on. Walking into camp today I could tell it was going to be a different atmosphere but the Chiefs did not disappoint. The players took the field probably 30 minutes before practice and began warming up. Different groups of positions were mixed throughout the field and players came and went as they saw fit.

Shortly after the running backs got done running through positional drills the team split into offense and defense on separate fields. One of the first plays and a fan favorite was watching Smith throw a backwards lateral to Maclin who took a step to the outside and threw back across the field to Smith who was running down the sideline. Smith had several nice throws and spread the ball across the field to all the different receivers before letting Daniel and then Murray.

After the third string unit got done running through plays the team went to seven on seven. Watching the offense run against the first string passing defense was fun to see as the offense was still able to move the ball down the field. Smith hit DAT down the right sideline for a TD, later hit Kelce down the middle surrounded by defenders and then had a gorgeous TD to Wilson in the corner of the end zone just over Sean Smith who would drop and do push-ups just after the catch.. A little later as the third string passing defense went against the third-string passing offense rookie Justin March had a diving interception of a short pass from Aaron Murray to Ryan Taylor.

After finishing the seven on seven the team split again and worked on punt formations and special teams before finishing practice with a couple of easy runs. After watching the whole team meet in the middle of the field I saw Frankie Hammond Jr. sprint to the Jugs machine as soon as the meeting was over. He caught at least two passes if not three before any other player made it to the area. Once again the last man on the Jugs machine was Albert who was there well after all the other players had left the field.
