Observations from Chiefs' practice: Baldwin's back

The Kansas City Star

Here's what you didn't see if you weren't at Chiefs practice today:

1. Jonathan Baldwin was back to work after missing Friday's practice because of a migraine headache. Baldwin said his recent problems with migraines are a first for him. Also practicing for the first time in recent weeks were rookie safety DeQuan Menzie and reserve defensive lineman Ropati Pitoitua. Defensive lineman Glenn Dorsey was absent from practice. Tight end Martin Rucker. who injured his knee in Friday's practice, was also absent from practice.

2. The newly signed Abram Elam got into the starting lineup for a few snaps at strong safety. Elam doesn't figure to be a starter when Eric Berry and Kendrick Lewis are allowed to practice but his addition is an important one. The Chiefs had precious little experienced depth at safety before he arrived.

3. The other temporary starting safety, Travis Daniels, intercepted a Ricky Stanzi pass in what was the play of the day.

4. The Chiefs continue to rotate between Brady Quinn and Stanzi as the second-team quarterback. Today was Quinn's turn and he was sharper than Stanzi when he eventually received his turn.
