The Chiefs concluded their practice week in preparation for Super Bowl LIV with a spirited 75-minute workout at the Miami Dolphins Baptist Health Training Facility in Davie Wednesday.
Special teams kicked things off with a walk through, and then offense and defense worked mostly on red zone. Players did not wear pads.
The team was lively despite working in the midday sun in 80-degree heat. “I thought they had good energy,” Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said. “They flew around. Got some red zone work done, which we needed. Kind of polished it up. All-in-all another positive day.”
Every Chiefs player practiced, including those listed on the injury report – defensive lineman Chris Jones, tight end Travis Kelce, center Austin Reiter, and tight end Deon Yelder. Reid indicated he expects all of his players to be healthy enough to play Sunday.
Kelce had a solid week of practice and was “moving around pretty good,” in Reid’s estimation.
Chiefs owner Clark Hunt attended practice with his family, and he spoke briefly to the team afterward.
On Saturday, Reid said the Chiefs will stage a mock game walkthrough, as they always do the day before games. “We’ll make sure the substitutions are right, then get a team picture, and we’re out of here,” he said.
Asked if he is ready to go, Reid said, “I don’t want to play, but yeah, I’m ready to coach.”
