Tamba Hali Returns to Chiefs
When the Chiefs headed out to practice yesterday they were joined by a number of players coming back from injury. Tamba Hali, Tyler Bray, Phillip Gaines and Charcandrick West were all able to suit up and practice. All of them were able to practice in full. That is quite the step up from last week. Having Hali back on the field could help alleviate some of the Chiefs woes of getting after the passer and stopping the run.
Tyler Bray resumed his duty of third string QB in front of Aaron Murray and Kevin Hogan. It looks like Josh Mauga will probably miss another game on Saturday. He is still nursing a groin injury which means more reps for Justin March and Ramik Wilson. Also due to an injury to Tre Millard, Brian Parker was working with the running backs. That is more in a reserve role for the preseason game.
Andy Reid will not have a specific game plan for the Bears game on Saturday. The starters could play into the third quarter. For most of the starters this could be the last live action they see until the season kicks off on September 11th. There are plenty of roster battles that will be key in game number three which means a lot of young players will be trying their best to make an impression.
Chiefs Fantasy Outlook
We took a look at the different values that Chiefs players would have in fantasy football for the upcoming draft season on today’s show. We also discuss the QB’s and RB’s. There could really be some tough battles over the next couple of weeks as the Chiefs prepare for next Tuesday’s first cut downs to 75 players. The Chiefs have both 5 running backs and 5 quarterbacks. That more than likely that means that 4 of those players will not be on the active roster come opening day.
