[Kansas City.com] Starting quarterback Trent Green was again grounded during the first day of Chiefs minicamp Friday. Green was limited to drills that didn’t require any throwing.
Green said he was experiencing no soreness in his passing arm and indicated the Chiefs are just being cautious.
“Sometimes I get a little overzealous in my preparation,” he said. “I’ve been throwing and working out since the Monday after the Pro Bowl. That probably wasn’t the smartest thing on my part in terms of how long the offseason is. Some of the coaches and some of the trainers and everybody saw the way I was working and said: ‘You know what? You’re going to kill yourself before you even get to training camp.’”
“They think it’s in my best interest to pull back. I feel good. It’s more just them seeing my eagerness and trying to keep me in check. I understand it. I don’t like it, but I understand it. It’s probably smart.”
