Observations from the leaders’ training camp from August 15

Monday morning, the Kansas City Chiefs conducted their 14th full training camp workout of 2022 at their training ground at Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph, Missouri.

There are only three public boot camp practices left. Click here to find out how you can attend – and see the rest of the 2022 calendar.

Monday’s practice was a full-contact affair with pads. At the start of the session, we learned that four chiefs — wide receivers Gary Jennings and Omar Bayless, cornerback Lonnie Johnson Jr. and tackle Evin Ksiezarczyk — were waived before the team’s cutback deadline on Tuesday. Defensive tackle Danny Shelton participated in his first practice in Kansas City.

Arrowhead Pride editor Pete Sweeney was among other leaders who beat reporters and television crews, watching everything that was happening. Pete’s observations have already been posted on Twitter.

Now we share them here — start with a nice day.

Rock think now that good tackle is Andrew Wylie’s job to lose.

Pete isn’t quite sure of the reserve tight end just yet, but the cornerback who missed the start of training camp seems to be all the way back.

Rock added the targets for the attack of the first team.

At one point, things got a little hectic.

It was then time to count head-to-head.

Rock noted Monday’s pecking order among the ball carriers.

Pete – like several hundred others watching – used the words “massive” and “human” in the same sentence. Really…there are few other ways to put it.

“Justin Case Reid” (h/t AP user JerrelWilsonsKneeJerk) makes an appearance.

To finish… a note on the No. 6 wide receiver.

The Chiefs will practice again on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday – then break camp. On Saturday, the team’s second pre-season game is scheduled. It will be against the Washington Commanders at Arrowhead Stadium. Kick-off is set for 3 p.m. (rush hour).
