The biggest question coming away from training camp remains about where camp will be in 2018.

The Chiefs had their final practice in Saint Joseph on Wednesday and it was Military Appreciation day. They will be headed back to Kansas City to finish preparation for the Cincinnati Bengals preseason game on Saturday. The last day of training camp ended up being the only practice that the Chiefs had to move indoors. Most of the camp attendees weren’t able to see the end of practice, the Chiefs invited the military attendees into the training facility.

A couple of Chiefs corners returned to practice with Steven Nelson and Ashton Lampkin coming back from injury. KC has been dealing with a rash of injuries among the DB’s. Getting those two players back will really help out. Offensive lineman Zach Fulton got first string snaps at both left guard and right guard at practice. Reid talked after practice and talked about how much each quarterback will play on Saturday. Alex Smith and the ones will get the first half. Patrick Mahomes and the second unit will get the third quarter. Tyler Bray and the third string will get the fourth quarter. It will be interesting to see if Reid sticks to that plan as he didn’t in week one when Smith only got one series.

Patrick Mahomes struggled a little bit at camp on Wednesday. He  throwing back to back picks to Marcus Peters one of which would have been a pick six. He heads into the second preseason game with a chance to put himself ahead on the depth chart on Saturday. If he plays well with the second unit Tyler Bray may be stuck at third string moving forward. Unfortunately for the Chiefs he will not see the zone reads he needs to get prepared more for the season.
