[Kansas City.com] Injured guard Will Shields sparked some brief hope that he might practice for the first time Wednesday afternoon when he arrived for the workout in a helmet and other gear with the rest of his teammates.
But after stretching and running before the practice with the rest of the Chiefs, Shields left for an adjacent field to work out for assistant strength coach Billy Long. Later, Shields said his arrival at practice was not a sign of progress.
“It’s just me hoping I can get back in the groove soon,” said Shields, who has an injured back. “It’s just like anything else. You’ve got to test it out, and when it’s ready, you’ve got to work your way back into the groove.”
