Thomas, who has been one of the most dynamic players in training camp, woke up Wednesday with a spasm in his hamstring, said Chiefs head coach Andy Reid.

Thomas, a fourth-round draft pick, has worked at several spots in the offense, both as a runner and as a receiver, and returned a punt 80 yards for a touchdown in the preseason opener against Cincinnati.

Starting running back Jamaal Charles (foot), wide receiver Dwayne Bowe (quadriceps), safety Eric Berry (heel), linebacker Joe Mays (wrist), wide receiver Junior Hemingway (hip), defensive lineman Mike Catapano (illness) did not practice.

Reid said Charles and Bowe were “making progress.”

Nickel cornerback Chris Owens left practice with a knee injury.
