The Chiefs have one more practice left before they have a couple of days off from camp. On Monday Kansas City took the field for another padded practice but they were still missing some players.

Eric Berry, Bennie Logan and Travis Kelce all missed practice on Monday. Berry and Kelce spent time in the trainers tent with Chris Jones so they are getting closer to returning.

Two Chiefs did return to practice as Derrick Johnson and Steven Nelson took the field again on Monday.

KC did however lose three more players to injury. De’Vante Bausby left with an ankle injury, newly signed CB Jacoby Glenn has a concussion and Cairo Santos tweaked his groin.

Santos’ situation will be interesting to watch as the Chiefs don’t have another kicker on the roster.

Tamba Hali, Dadi Nicholas and Parker Ehinger as well as the previously mentioned Jones remain on the PUP list. While Logan stays out and newly signed DT Roy Miller gets back into playing shape the Chiefs brought in another DL in Maurice Swain.

Chiefs ILB Ukeme Eligwe continues to make plays as he grabbed another interception on Monday.

During practice, Miller took repetitions with the ones in Bennie Logan’s spot while Eric Murray stepped in for Eric Berry. Both Miller and Murray could play large roles for the Chiefs this season.

Patrick Mahomes showed off why he is so polarizing at practice as well. In a span of 5 or 6 plays he threw a couple of INT’s followed by a beautiful back-shoulder touchdown to TE Ross Travis.

Mahomes still has many things to work on but there is no denying his talent. Once he is able to read defenses better and is able to see the throwing lane and avoid as many tipped passes he will be much closer to being ready to play.

Even though Eric Berry didn’t practice today he did spend time with fans. After getting through his workout in the trainers tent he headed back up to the practice facility. As he headed up he stopped to take pictures with fans and sign a couple autographs.

A long line quickly formed. Berry ended up spending a considerable amount of time with Chiefs fans. He is still very grateful for the chance he has to play in the NFL and he loves interacting with fans.
