Chiefs camp: Kansas City wraps up at St. Joe’s


The Kansas City Chiefs have wrapped up their training camp at St. Joseph, Mo. After two and a half weeks of hard work and a few injuries, the Chiefs are ready to abandon their dorm rooms for the comfort of home, with the team now set to practice at One Arrowhead Drive.

The final practice on Wednesday did not give us much to talk about with head coach Andy Reid keeping the pads in the equipment room. Luckily, there were no new injuries, while some of the rehabbing players continued to work on the side. Eric Fisher, Jeff Allen and De’Anthony Thomas were working in the medical tent. After practice, Reid announced that both Fisher and Allen will not play on Friday night against the Seattle Seahawks, while Thomas is questionable along with Josh Mauga and Sanders Commings, per Terez Paylor of the Kansas City Star.

On the offensive line, we did see another change. The group was Donald Stephenson, Ben Grubbs, Mitch Morse, Laurent Duvernay-Tardif and Paul Fanaika from left to right. Reid didn’t say whether this would be the startling line on Friday, but with this being the final practice before then, it stands to reason it will be. Fanaika moving to right tackle is deeply disturbing for the health of Alex Smith, because watching him on film shows a massive man who plays like an ice box with feet.

Beyond that, Paylor reported that Marcus Peters was seeing some time in the slot during nickel packages. It is tough to imagine Peters playing much there because the slot corner rarely presses and Peters is built to play outside the numbers, so this likely was just getting the kid some new experience in case of an emergency.
