The Kansas City Chiefs got some good news on the injury front on Wednesday as they headed to another practice in St. Joseph, but it wasn't long before one new name was added to the list of concerns. Offensive lineman Nick Allegretti was forced to leave practice early with an injury.
The Chiefs watched Allegretti hurt his shoulder on Wednesday, the second-to-last day of training camp, and he did not finish the day with his teammates.
The Chiefs got some players back but lost Allegretti during Wednesday's practice in training camp.
Coming into the day, the injury concerns from the previous day about some of the team's wide receivers were eased as both Justyn Ross and Ihmir Smith-Marsette returned to practice in full capacity one day after leaving on a medical cart at Missouri Western State University. Three receivers were banged up on Tuesday, but only Nikko Remigio remained out on the morning.
Remigio wasn't the only player sitting out. Nic Jones continues to rest after fracturing fingers in the team's loss to the New Orleans Saints on Sunday in the preseason opener. Wide receiver Kadarius Toney also remains out since the start of camp with a knee injury that required clean-up surgery. Meanwhile, L'Jarius Sneed continues to sit as the team tries to manage his knee injury for the long-term.
The Chiefs brought back Allegretti on a one-year deal in free agency to be the primary backup along the offensive interior. The former Illinois product was a former seventh-round pick of the Chiefs back in 2019 and has played in 57 games since then at both guard positions and center. If something were to happen to Allegretti, Mike Caliendo would likely be the next man up.
