Pre-Season Practice Report – 8/23




August 23, 2011 - Bob Gretz |

No Comments



From the Truman Sports Complex


Maybe it was the change in practice time. Maybe it was something
sprinkled into his Cheerios. But Todd Haley was all fired up Tuesday
morning as he put the Chiefs through their only practice of the day.

Haley’s voice could be heard from two football fields away and most of
the time the head coach was directing his comments to his offense. That
unit had another tough day against the Chiefs defense.

“Come on offense, show a little fight,” Haley said at one point.

But fight was not evident during most of the 100-minute session from the
offense. In a goal line period, the No. 1 offense had five snaps to get
the ball in the end zone and scored only one the last one, when RB
Jackie Battle leaped over the right side of the offensive line. The
other four plays produced minimal yardage.

One update of not on the injury front, starting CB Brandon Flowers was
in the rehab area and not practicing. Flowers limped off the field on
Monday, but indicated in the locker room after practice it was nothing
serious. On Tuesday, he spent his time walking up and down the rehab
field and not much else.

More observations from Tuesday morning’s session:

– Maybe it was just wrapped differently than on Sunday, but WR Jonathan
Baldwin’s right wrist was not wrapped up in a cast like it has been in
earlier practices. On Tuesday, he appeared to be wearing a brace on his
lower right arm, with the thumb wrapped up tightly. He rode the
stationary bike and was back to pulling small weighted sled up and down
the field.

– The other player not practicing were LB Gabe Miller (hamstring), LB
Eric Bakhtiari (head), C/G Darryl Harris (knee), OT Ryan O’Callaghan
(unknown), TE Jake O’Connell (ankle) and NT Anthony Toribio (knee).
Miller and O’Connell were not on the field at all.

– WR Steve Breaston worked about half the practice and then went to the
rehab area. He continues to rehab an off-season procedure.

– OT Jared Gaither was dressed and was part of practice, but he did not take any snaps with the offense.

– The Chiefs offense has worked hard on the play-action passing game
this week. Obviously, with the unit’s ability to run the ball it’s an
area that could produce big yardage for QB Matt Cassel.

– WR Dwayne Bowe had a dropped pass in team work and that’s two days in a
row when he’s had chances to make catches but fell short. It’s worth
mentioning because in St. Joe practices, Bowe caught everything thrown
his way.

– All through this training camp, QB Matt Cassel has been getting rid of
the football when he can’t find anyone open. Expect to see more passes
from him that end up in the first row of the stadium seats. If he’s not
comfortable with his options, he’s throwing foul balls that won’t land
for interceptions.

– Second and third stringers got a chance for a few extra snaps and
drills at the end of practice. While the first teamers were doing
conditioning runs, the backup were trying to put yet another performance
on tape that would help the coaches evaluating their play, in practice
and games.

Has Gaither played any yet? I haven't got to break down any of the games.
