The injury bug has bitten the Chiefs early in training camp, but one player of note — rookie linebacker Ramik Wilson — returned to practice on Friday.

Wilson missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday with a back strain, but was a full participant in individual and full team drills on Friday. Chiefs coach Andy Reid said he suffered the injury while preparing for training camp on his own.

Tight end Demetrius Harris missed his third straight practice while recovering from a second foot surgery. He was seen rehabbing on the sideline.

Quarterback Tyler Bray observed practice for the third straight day but did not participate as he recovers from a torn ACL he suffered in January.

Rookie wide receiver Chris Conley missed his second straight practice with a knee sprain but was seen rehabbing on the sideline.

Rookie running back Keshawn Hill did not practice Friday. He went down with a hamstring injury on Thursday.

Chiefs safety Eric Berry did not practice Friday, but that was part of the plan, according to Reid, who said Wednesday that Berry would have the practice off.

Quarterbacks Alex Smith and Chase Daniel did not practice on Friday either, but the Chiefs planned on giving the veteran quarterbacks the morning off.
