DAVIE — The Chiefs had full participation in their 90-minute practice at the Miami Dolphins Baptist Health Training Facility in Davie Wednesday.
Head coach Andy Reid said tight end Travis Kelce was “fine” and defensive lineman Chris Jones was “good to go.” He also anticipates both practicing Thursday.
Players worked up a nice sweat under sunny skies as the temperature reached 80 degrees. “They loved it,” Reid said. “They got a little sunshine, so they loved it.”
It was a typical late-season, Wednesday practice for the Chiefs. No helmets or pads were worn. Reid indicated he was mostly pleased with the offensive execution, which is what he usually pays attention to when he’s on the field.
Reid also has been pleased with the facility, the fields, and the hospitality. The Chiefs now have had three practices this week at the Baptist Health Training Facility. “The people here have been great, and the Dolphins people have been phenomenal,” he said.
Attending practice were some of the Fox Sports crew, including on-air talent Joe Buck, Troy Aikman, Curt Menefee, Michael Strahan, Jimmy Johnson, Chris Myers, and Erin Andrews.
Also present were Tony Boselli and Laura Okmin from Westwood One.
After practice, Reid asked Johnson, who recently was voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, to speak to the team. Reid and Johnson also posed for a photo.
“I competed against him and always respected him,” Reid said.
