For the first week of Chiefs camp, the lineup across the offensive line remained fairly consistent. Eric Fisher at left tackle, Ben Grubbs at left guard, Eric Kush at center, Jeff Allen at guard and Donald Stephenson at tackle on the right side.
But the Chiefs have switched things up, and on Monday, for the third straight day, a line that included Mitch Morse at center, Zach Fulton at right guard and Allen at right tackle got first-team reps.
The new starting offensive line?
“We’ll see,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. “We’re looking for combinations. This group seems to be working well together and we’re happy with it so far. Again, we’ll just see. We’re going to play the five best guys.”
Reid said he likes what he sees from Allen at tackle.
“Jeff’s able to play the game out in front of him,” Reid said. “He has control of his arms in the pass game, and he’s a tough kid. He’s got good feet and athleticism.”
Working with the second team, starting at left tackle, were Stevenson, Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, Kush, Paul Fanaika and Jarrod Pughsley.
