The Chiefs returned to the practice field and resumed their voluntary offseason program on Tuesday morning.

They’ll work three days this week, four days next week and conduct a mandatory mini-camp during June 4-6 before adjourning until training camp opens in late July in St. Joseph.

Wide receiver Dwayne Bowe, who left the practice field at the end of last Thursday’s practice, appeared to be at full strength and took full repetitions.

Newly signed Toben Opurum, a defensive end/linebacker/ running back at Kansas, was issued No. 44 in his bid to make the club as a fullback.

Veteran running back Shaun Draughn was still confined to spectator status while recovering from a sports hernia.
