Monday's Chiefs practice report
By Adam Teicher
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Some thoughts and observations on Monday's Kansas City Chiefs practice:
- Injured starters Jamaal Charles (foot), Eric Berry (heel) and Mike DeVito (hand) returned to practice. Charles hasn't played in the preseason since the opener against Cincinnati while Berry and DeVito have yet to play. But the Chiefs practiced without tackle Eric Fisher (illness) and wide receivers Dwayne Bowe (quad) and Junior Hemingway (hip), among others. Ryan Harris took Fisher's spot at left tackle.
- The Chiefs appeared no closer to settling on a starter at left guard, the spot vacated when Jeff Allen moved to right tackle. They again rotated between Ricky Henry and Jeffrey Linkenbach, an indication this decision could go down to the wire.
- Undrafted rookie Daniel Sorensen was bumped from the starting lineup by Berry's return, but he continues to make big plays. He stepped in front of Frankie Hammond Jr. in the end zone to make an interception of a Chase Daniel pass.
- Daniel, Alex Smith and snapper Thomas Gafford wore small cameras on their helmets but this had nothing to do with football. It was at the request of the Chiefs' promotional department, which may use the video from those cameras in upcoming features.
