The story so far
A new hope. The start of the Pat Mahomes era in Kansas City. Likely only to have a drive or two with it being the start of pre season but it’ll set the fire in the Chiefs fan base, excitement at what is to come. And then 55 minutes of Chad Henne and Matt McGloin…
Head to head with the Chiefs
Chiefs lead 6-4.
One to watch
Chad Henne. What have we got if the unthinkable happens?
It’s Mahomes v Watson. A battle we should be seeing in the playoffs for years to come.
The following players were held out of Kansas City Chiefs training camp in St. Joseph, Missouri, Tuesday morning:
OL Dillon Gordon (shoulder)
LB Dorian O’Daniel (thumb issue since 8/5)
S Leon McQuay (hamstring issue since 8/6)
CB Keith Reaser (quad strain suffered on 7/29)
S Dan Sorensen (knee)
RB Charcandrick West (concussion suffered on 7/28)
WR Sammy Watkins (hip issue since 8/6)
WR Tim Wright (sick)
What they said
“I did not get to watch a lot of Texas Tech football, but I’ll watch some film this week and I’ll let you know,” Texans defensive end J.J. Watt said. “I know the kid’s got a cannon. That’s the No. 1 thing I know is he can throw the ball a quarter mile. We’ll find out on Thursday night I’m sure.”
What we said
“You’re looking for assignment football,” Chiefs’ coach Andy Reid explained. “You’re looking when the juices get going how you handle that. You’re in the stadium with the fans there. We’ve had a great turnout here (in St. Joseph, Missouri—home of training camp), but it’s a little different with the lights on and it’s game time.”
It’s Pre Season. If you’re betting on this you’ve got issues
