The Chiefs had several injured players back in practice on Tuesday. Quarterback Tyler Bray, running back Charcandrick West and cornerback Phillip Gaines had been nursing injuries. Running back Jamaal Charles and linebacker Tamba Hali had missed time after off-season knee surgery. They were all back on the practice field Tuedsay.
Tamba Hali returned to Chiefs practice on Tuesday for the first time since undergoing knee surgery in the offseason. Running back Jamaal Charles returned to practice last week after his knee surgery. But don't expect either to play in either of the Chiefs' final two preseason games.
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Chris Conley was a standout in the team's second preseason game, grabbing three receptions for 66 yards, including a beautiful 37-yard haul from quarterback Alex Smith. The Chiefs are looking for Conley to take the next step after a rookie season in which he caught 17 passes and one touchdown.
Chiefs backup fullback Trey Millard left Saturday's game against the Rams in the back of a cart after injuring a knee in the third quarter. Millard, who signed with the Chiefs in January, is from Columbia and played at Rock Bridge High. He went to Oklahoma and earned All-Big 12 honors.
The idea was to give quarterback Nick Foles the third quarter against his former team Saturday. But the Chiefs had moved the ball impressively against the Rams with Alex Smith - two touchdown drives and a field goal with one three-and-out - so coach Andry Reid decided to make the switch early.
For the second straight game, cornerback Phillip Gaines was listed as inactive by the Chiefs. Gaines is returning from knee surgery, suffered in the third week last season, and a sore ankle. He's been limited in practice during the preseason. Also not suiting up for the Chiefs among those who participated in training camp in St.
The Seahawks' offense took the field for the first time last week and quarterback Russell Wilson might as well have pointed to Chiefs' cornerback Steven Nelson and yelled, "Head's up, coming your way!" The first two snaps, Nelson, a second-year pro, gave a little too much cushion, and Wilson completed quick slants, each for a first down.
Chiefs coach Andy Reid said starters will play the first half of Saturday's preseason game against the Rams on Saturday, with the second team playing in the third quarter and the third team playing in the fourth quarter.
The Chiefs wrapped up their St. Joseph portion of the preseason on Thursday and they did not see three of their defensive players on the field the entire camp: linebackers Justin Houston and Tamba Hali and safety Eric Berry.
Kansas City won an abundance of bids for NCAA championships during the last bidding cycle in 2013. Now at the doorstep of the next bid cycle, Kansas City wants even more. The Kansas City Sports Commission submitted bids to the NCAA for championships it won the last time, like Division I women's volleyball and Division II football.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. David Pogue)
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both politicians Barack Obama and Mitt Romney by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama +Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
