Chiefs training camp observations from Day 16

On Wednesday morning, the Kansas City Chiefs conducted their 16th full practice of 2022’s training camp on their practice field at Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph, Missouri.

Just one public training camp practice remains. Click here to learn how you can attend Thursday’s final session.

Wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee), tight end Blake Bell (hip), running back Jerick McKinnon (hamstring) tackle Lucas Niang (knee) and long snapper James Winchester were absent.

By the time practice had ended, defensive tackle Chris Jones (back) and wide receiver Mecole Hardman (groin) had left with injuries.
