Chiefs add DB Juan Thornhill to PUP list | ChiefsWire

A move to the PUP list means that Thornhill will not be permitted to practice until he’s medically cleared to do so by doctors and athletic training staff in Kansas City. Thornhill suffered a torn ACL during the Chiefs’ Week 17 win against the Los Angeles Chargers. He was sent to the injured reserve list and didn’t participate in the Chiefs’ postseason run after a tremendous rookie season.

Chiefs place OL Martinas Rankin on PUP list | ChiefsWire

Rankin, 25, suffered a knee injury during the Chiefs’ Week 10 loss against the Tennessee Titans. We’d find out the following Monday that the injury was a season-ending injury. The only description we ever heard about Rankin’s injury is that it was to his patella.

Tyrann Mathieu Is Making Sure the Tone Is Set For a Super Bowl Repeat | AR

“I feel like defensively, we still aren’t talked about in the breath that I would like, so I’m extremely motivated to kind of keep my guys chipping away at it,” Mathieu said. “We’re constantly trying to set a standard that everybody’s going to respect, so I’m hoping some of the young guys we added and some of the veterans we’ve added can kind of help bring that swagger to the room.”

Mitchell Schwartz says Joey Bosa’s lucrative extension is ‘well deserved’

“The preparation is a lot of panic that week [when preparing for Bosa], and trying to calm your stress down. But he’s just incredibly well-rounded,” says Schwartz. “There are guys that have a plan in terms of they want to attack you this way and they study you and all that. There are guys who are instinctive. He really combines the two of them. He has a plan and knows how he wants to attack you. He knows what’s going to work, but the second you overset he goes inside. Or the second you set too far on your heels, he bullrushes you.

“So it’s really difficult. There’s not much you can do. You just gotta try to battle him and hope the ball is out. He’s able to do anything in either run or pass. That’s why he’s the highest paid guy in football on the defensive side. It’s very well deserved.”

Five Takeaways From Training Camp on Thursday | Chiefs.com

[Schwartz] “You don’t necessarily get the feel for things until you’re in pads anyways, and I’m pretty sure we have as many padded practices [at camp] as we normally would. They might not all be the same length as they used to be – whether that’s COVID-19 or the new CBA rules – but I think we’re going to have a pretty good amount of practice,” Schwartz said. “Honestly, with the older guys, I think that the longer they’ve played, the easier it is to mesh them together. Obviously, [Osemele] has had an awesome career and Remmers has, too. Those are guys who understand how to play with people and next to people. That’s something that I’m not too worried about.”

Who are the offensive rookie of the year candidates for 2020? | PFT

With Chiefs running back Damien Williams opting out for 2020, Chiefs rookie first-rounder Clyde Edwards-Helaire will have plenty more opportunities to generate the kind of numbers that will help him win offensive rookie of the year votes.

The Landlord sounds like an amped up DC and I’m sooooooooo glad Spags / Reid / Veach brought him on board, the guy’s smart as hell, loves to play and he’s dayum good … all that and Mr Motivation personified

then there’s Mitch and how can anyone NOT love the guy … also smart as hell, and laid back chill relaxed as it gets … when Mitch says HE ain’t worried, then I ain’t worried … he’s got this, they’ve got this … he really is both a CHIEF =AND= a CHEF (and the best RT in the Enn Eff Ell)

May The Schwartz Be With You!
