Mitchell Schwartz and Tyreek Hill returned to practice for the Chiefs in training camp after healing on a day off on Thursday.
The Kansas City Chiefs were missing a couple of the most important members of their offense from practice in training camp earlier this week. Fortunately after a well-deserved day off on Thursday, both right tackle Mitchell Schwartz and wide receiver Tyreek Hill were able to return on Friday.
The Chiefs saw Hill leave the field on a medical cart earlier this week after taking a hit from cornerback Bashaud Breeland and trainers immediately began to attend to his right leg. The official diagnosis was nothing serious.
Instead he’d suffered a quad contusion and simply needed time to rest. Fortunately he’s back today and ready to practice as his agent Drew Rosenhaus continues to work with the Chiefs front office on a long-term extension.
Schwartz also missed more than one practice earlier this week, a bit of an odd sight given that he’s the NFL’s reigning ironman—the league leader in consecutive snaps played.
While the team is a long way from Week 1, it’s an anomaly in general to see Schwartz listed among the injured. The team’s All-Pro right tackle was dealing with back pain, which is nothing to mess around with. The good news is that he’s back as well.
The Chiefs will continue training camp on Friday in front of fans, but they’ll do so without a few others who are missing. Safety Jordan Lucas, running back Damien Williams and wideout Gehrig Dieter remain injured and will not fully participate in Friday’s practice, per Pete Sweeney.
