KANSAS CITY CHIEFS (10-7)OPEN CAMP:

 July 28 Charles Mann Jersey , Missouri Western, St. Joseph, MissouriLAST YEAR: Chiefs rolled to 5-0 start, went through midseason swoon, then won final four games of regular season to defend AFC West title for first time in franchise history. QB Alex Smith had career season, RB Kareem Hunt led NFL in rushing, and WR Tyreek Hill evolved from speedy gadget star to playmaking pass catcher. Defense struggled to absorb season-ending injury to SS Eric Berry, resulting in unit that routinely allowed big plays. Season ended when Kansas City blew 21-3 halftime lead in 22-21 loss to Tennessee in wild-card round of playoffs.IMPORTANT ADDITIONS: WR Sammy Watkins, LB Anthony Hitchens, CB Kendall Fuller, QB Chad Henne Dexter Manley Jersey , DT Xavier Williams, QB Matt McGloin, TE Tim Wright, CB David Amerson, LB Breeland Speaks, DT Derrick Nnadi, LB Dorian O’Daniel, SS Armani Watts.IMPORTANT LOSSES: QB Alex Smith, CB Marcus Peters, LB Derrick Johnson, FS Ron Parker Art Monk Jersey , LB Tamba Hali, CB Phillip Gaines, WR Albert Wilson, CB Terrance Mitchell, OL Zach Fulton, LB Kevin Pierre-Louis, LB Ramik Wilson, DL Bennie Logan, CB Kenneth Acker.CAMP NEEDS: Must determine starting CBs after trading Peters and releasing Mitchell, with Fuller and Amerson front-runners. Berry must prove his health after tearing Achilles tendon last September. Pass rush must show improvement with rookies Speaks and O’Daniel complementing OLBs Justin Houston and Dee Ford.EXPECTATIONS: Chiefs’ have overhauled roster under second-year GM Brett Veach, particularly on defense. Longtime stalwarts Johnson and Hali are gone and rookies will be expected to contribute from first snap. But if Chiefs are to win third straight AFC West title Trent Williams Jersey , they need second-year QB Patrick Mahomes II to live up to expectations. Kansas City traded up to select him 10th overall in 2017, and was so confident in his abilities it traded Smith to Redskins after best season of career.— Washington linebacker Reuben Foster took the practice field for the first time with his team today but lasted just a few minutes.Foster was carted off the practice field just after the start of Organized Team Activities. Reporters on the scene described Foster as getting his left knee attended to while he cried in pain.Washington took a great deal of criticism for claiming Foster off waivers in November, days after the 49ers released him when he was arrested following a domestic violence accusation at the team hotel. Foster was immediately placed on the commissioner’s exempt list, but when those charges were dropped months later, Foster was not suspended.There’s no immediate word on the severity of Foster’s injury, but it’s now possible that Foster won’t play in Washington not because of a suspension, but because of an injury in his very first practice with the team.
