Chiefs training camp update: Chase Daniel at RB, Eric Berry's presence felt

Reports from around the web from Thursday at Chiefs' camp. The Kansas City Chiefs wrapped another day of training camp practice on Thursday, and the end result was a nice day without any major news. Wide receiver Chris Conley and running back Keshawn Hill both missed practice today. Conley is considered day-to-day per team reports, so it's unknown when he'll return to the field. Ramik Wilson and Demetrius Harris also sat out practice. As for the players on the field, the highlight of today's practice might be that back-up quarterback Chase Daniel lined up at running back since the team was...

The road to recovery for Kansas City Chiefs' Dontari Poe

I spoke with Dr. David Chao about Dontari Poe's surgery for a herniated disc and the recovery associated with that. Dr. Chao is a former NFL team physician for 17 years and has made a name for himself as @ProFootballDoc where he discusses sports injuries in real time. Chao claims to have insider knowledge about sports injuries -- not insider information. He is not Poe's doctor nor has he seen him so he's not dealing with inside information -- only the Chiefs would know that -- but he has worked in the business for nearly 20 years so he has knowledge of how these things work. With that...

Arrowheadlines: Kansas City Chiefs News 7/30

Good morning! Here's the latest news on your Kansas City Chiefs. Enjoy. Chiefs safety Eric Berry: "Fear Nothing, Attack Everything" from The Mothership "One of the toughest moments we had was during breakfast one morning," Berry's father, James, recalled. "It just hit him. He was just sitting there and all of the sudden he got all teary-eyed and was like, 'Wow, man, I have cancer.' And then he started looking ahead like, ‘What if I'm not going to be able to do this or if I can't do that?' "I sat there and we just cried together, but I told him, 'You've got to take this one day at a time....

Chiefs training camp injury report: Chris Conley, Tyler Bray, Ramik Wilson on the list

Four Chiefs land on the early injury report. The Kansas City Chiefs rookies, quarterbacks and some injured players were on hand for their training camp debut on Wednesday. We're not yet at the full squad practice -- the first one comes on Saturday -- but this group of players is allowed to come out and get in three days of practice before everyone else. Because this isn't a full squad workout and it's mostly rookies who we don't know there won't be many practice observations. It's more about who's there, who's not. Plus, the Chiefs have rules that restricts us on what we can report during...

Chiefs' Eric Berry found a way to work out during chemotherapy and came out a pound heavier

Kansas City Chiefs trainer Rick Burkholder stood in front of the media 247 days ago to explain that Eric Berry had a mass in his chest, which was determined to be Hodgkins lymphoma. On Wednesday at Chiefs training camp, Burkholder returned to explain the process of how Berry returned to the practice field. I have notes on everything Burkholder said below but perhaps the best part is this tidbit which shows how dedicated to returning Berry was. "One of the interesting things is, between Eric and his physician, they decided not to do a traditional route of chemotherapy administration which is...

Chiefs 2015 defense will be very good: Pre-training camp primer

Craig gives his pre-camp guesses on starters, contributors, and gives out six way-too-early predictions. Ah, yes, it's that time of year again, Arrowhead Pride readers. It's time for training camp. You can almost smell the optimism wafting out of St. Joe as the Chiefs set up in the Missouri Western dorms this week. We'll learn a lot about the team and the depth chart over the next couple weeks, but before we get to that point, I'd like to take a (too early) look at the 2015 Chiefs defense. I'll take a stab at the starters, some key depth members, and make some predictions as to where I...

How much time will Chiefs' Dontari Poe miss after surgery?

Three months seems like a good guess. With the news that Dontari Poe had surgery for a herniated disc, I have been looking at how long others have been out with a herniated disc surgery to get an idea of how long Poe could be out. Keeping in mind that every player and their recovery is different, roughly three months is the timeline I keep seeing from others. A former NFL team doctor responded to our Poe tweet with this: Poe has surgery, out for all of camp http://t.co/pfDY3HJR3X via @ArrowheadPride > reserve/PUP candidate. Typically 3 month recovery. — David J. Chao, MD...

Chiefs' Andy Reid on Royals: 'They're cranking this thing up and going to go get a championship'

I went up to St. Joe on Tuesday for the rookies and quarterbacks arrival day at Kansas City Chiefs training camp, along with a press conference from Andy Reid where he revealed that Dontari Poe was hurt. Knowing that was very, very big news I skipped out on Reid's press conference early so that I could write that story for the site. That means I missed this very neat exchange about the Royals at Reid's press conference. "Listen, our players and the Royals players are very, very close," Reid said, via quotes transcribed by the Chiefs. "I had an opportunity to go out to their spring practice...

Five reasons why Dontari Poe's injury really sucks for the Kansas City Chiefs

I don't want to say that Dontari Poe is irreplaceable but it's damn close. Big men of his size are very unique, especially ones with the endurance that he has. That's why the news of his surgery for a herniated disc is so disheartening for Kansas City Chiefs fans. Poe is expected to return sometime early in the season. Let me count the ways that Poe's injury sucks... 1. This sucks because Jaye Howard, who will replace him, doesn't have much experience at nose tackle. Howard lined up at end last year when DeVito was injured. Other nose tackle options would be DeVito and rookie Rakeem...

Reactions to Eric Berry's return to the Kansas City Chiefs

In the best news we've heard in a while, the Kansas City Chiefs cleared Eric Berry to practice on Wednesday, eight months after he was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma. The Chiefs will be giving us more information in a press conference on Wednesday. Until then check out the reactions to the Berry news from around the NFL world. "Eric Berry cleared to play" is the best headline I've seen in a long time. — Rich Eisen (@richeisen) July 29, 2015 #Chiefs safety Eric Berry's press conference will take place tomorrow at 1pm. He'll talk after he practices. #Amazing...

Dontari Poe's injury: Chiefs NT undergoes surgery, out for a while

Dontari Poe underwent back surgery for a herniated disc in July. He will miss all of Chiefs training camp and perhaps part of the season, too. The start to the season is in doubt for NT Dontari Poe, who underwent surgery for a herniated disc. Chiefs trainer Rick Burkholder told reporters at Chiefs camp on Wednesday that Poe had back problems during camp and then hurt his back again the first week of July. He will miss all of training camp and it seems like a good possibility he misses part of the season, too. "I think he stands a reasonable chance [to return] the early part of the season,"...

Kansas City Chiefs sign a cornerback with their open roster spot

With an open roster spot the Kansas City Chiefs signed CB Kenneth Penny to the roster, according to the NFL's transactions report. Penny's name should be familiar to those Chiefs fans who keep a close eye on the roster. He tried out with the team during OTAs and showed enough to be signed in June. However, the Chiefs cut him in July when they signed DB Kevin Short after the Supplemental Draft. The Chiefs apparently like him enough to bring him back for camp to see what he can do. Plus, you can't have enough corners during training camp. The Chiefs had an open roster spot after cutting DB...

Eric Berry is back! Chiefs safety cleared to practice, will return Wednesday

Guess who's back? Eric Berry's BACK! Andy Reid hinted at it with us on Tuesday afternoon and by about 10 p.m. last night the Kansas City Chiefs made the official announcement that Berry has been cleared to practice after being diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma last November. After several rounds of thorough testing and a process that concluded late Tuesday evening, Chiefs safety Eric Berry has been cleared to take the practice field with the club for Wednesday morning's practice with quarterbacks, rookies and injured players. Incredible. The Chiefs will make the formal announcement at a...

Chiefs NT Dontari Poe Could Miss All of 2015 Following Back Surgery

Chiefs nose tackle Dontari Poe is recovering from back surgery to repair a herniated disc and is out indefinitely according to BJ Kissel of kcchiefs.com.

Chiefs expect an answer on Eric Berry this week, according to Andy Reid

We'll have some sort of news on Eric Berry very soon but we just don't know what that news will be. Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid told reporters up in St. Joe for training camp today that they're hoping to know something within the next day. "Eric is going through some tests now," Reid said. "We should have an answer for you on Eric within a day here. So far everything is positive but we don't want to give you anything until we have everything." I don't know what that answer will be. The Chiefs have options such as starting him off on an injury list before training camp starts. "He's...
