It may have appeared to the fans on Friday at training camp that kickers Ryan Succop and Cairo Santos were coming up short on 58-yard field goal attempts during one period of practice.

Relax, the misses were intentional.

The Chiefs were working on returning long field goals. Rookie De’Anthony Thomas and second-year man Knile Davis, who returned a kickoff 108 yards last year, were the return men for the missed field-goal attempts.
