Chiefs day in camp for Monday

Updated: 2012-08-14T21:54:44Z

OFFENSE

Running back Jamaal Charles darted and dashed through the defense during 11-on-11 drills. Tight end Kevin Boss snared a pass thrown behind him by Matt Cassel, taking it from cornerback Jailil Brown. In the scoring zone session, wide receiver Jon Baldwin leaped high over nickel back Javier Arenas and caught a touchdown pass from Cassel. Running back Shaun Draughn scored on a 5-yard sweep. Second-team quarterback Ricky Stanzi hit rookie Devon Wylie in the corner of the end zone.

DEFENSE

Brown batted away a Cassel pass intended for Dexter McCluster. Recently acquired linebacker Edgar Jones forced Stanzi to throw a pass into the ground. Backup safety Donald Washington came on a blitz and forced Brady Quinn into an incompletion.

INJURIES

Linebacker Cameron Sheffield sat out the afternoon practice because of a groin injury. He joined wide receiver Junior Hemingway (groin), defensive lineman Ethan Johnson (concussion) and cornerbacks Travis Daniels (groin/hamstring) and Brandon Flowers (heel) on the injured list.

DAILY BATTLE

Sheffield’s injury gave others an opportunity to get longer looks at outside linebacker. Sheffield, Jones and Gabe Miller are competing with Andy Studebaker for backup spots to Tamba Hali and Justin Houston. Studebaker has an edge because of his special-teams play, and the other three are battling for the remaining spot.

BY THE NUMBERS

7 The total of sacks the Chiefs had in their preseason opener against Arizona.
