Coffee with the Chiefs – Injury issues


Good morning, Addicts! We are officially less than 10 days away from the Kansas City Chiefs breaking for training camp.

We will have all the coverage you can imagine, from updates during practice to wrap-ups and news on every camp battle.

Here is the news you need to know…

Availability of Justin Houston, Eric Berry, hovers over Chiefs campAdam Teicher of ESPN

"Houston had surgery on his ACL in February, putting in doubt his availability for camp as well as the early portion of the regular season. Berry, the Chiefs’ franchise player, remains unsigned and won’t join the Chiefs until he agrees to the one-year contract he has been offered that’s worth about $10.8 million."

Chiefs equipment manager knows that for players, it is all about the shoesTerez Paylor of the Kansas City Star

"From the obvious, like pads, helmets, jerseys and pants, to the not-so-obvious, like weight-room equipment and the family pictures in players’ lockers, the Chiefs will soon be packing approximately 200,000 pounds of product into 10 semitrucks and hauling it all an hour north to Missouri Western."

Stanford coach talks about Kevin Hogan, Andy ReidJoel Thorman of Arrowhead Pride

"I wonder if his familiarity with the scheme will matter this year. I’ve kinda assumed that Tyler Bray and Aaron Murray are the only candidates for the No. 2 job this year while Hogan will fit in someplace down the line."

Albert Wilson truthers, uniteJoel Thorman of Arrowhead Pride

"So how will this affect him lining up on the inside more often this year? That’s a question I’ll be watching out for early on during training camp this year. Wilson was mostly on the outside last year so him on the inside could produce different results. If you’re hoping for a big leap in year three, a position switch could help make that happen."
