Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce on pace for 1,000-yard season

Travis Kelce  — a third-year pro in his first season as the Chiefs’ clear-cut No. 1 tight end — is on pace to finish with 79 catches for 1,002 yards and six touchdowns, and only four other NFL tight ends — Rob Gronkowski of New England, Greg Olsen of Carolina, Gary Barnidge of Cleveland and Delanie Walker of Tennessee — are on pace to finish with that many receiving yards.

Volunteers worked to set up the holiday shop at the Johnson County Christmas Bureau on Tuesday at the Metcalf South Shopping Center in Overland Park. The Christmas Bureau offers holiday assistance to more than 3,300 low-income families, provides them with groceries, toys, clothes, coats, personal-care items and holiday gifts. The bureau, which will open Friday for client appointments, is in desperate need of children's winter coats. Coats may be dropped off during business hours at the Christmas Bureau, on the west side of the mall at 95th Street and Metcalf Avenue.
