The Chiefs announced Thursday that they will practice with the Arizona Cardinals from Aug. 6-9 at the Chiefs' training camp at Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph. The Chiefs play the Cardinals in a preseason game Aug. 10 at Arrowhead Stadium.
“Training camp is about us continuing our development and evaluating our players,” Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel said. “We are very excited to be hosting another NFL team in St. Joseph. This will give us another opportunity to further evaluate our team under a different set of circumstances before we get into our preseason schedule.” Arizona will visit the Chiefs' training camp after its preseason opener Aug. 5 against the New Orleans Saints in the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio.
“There are many benefits to this arrangement and we appreciate Coach Crennel and the Chiefs working to make this happen,” Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt said. “Logistically, it makes a lot of sense since we play Sunday night in Canton and then Friday night at Kansas City, but I’ve always found there’s also great value in getting work against another team in a setting like this. We’re looking forward to it.”
