[Kansas City.com] Training camp update for Sunday, July 30th.
One day after Brian Waters injured his foot, Edwards said his return is still iffy. “It could be a couple of days, it could be a week,” Edwards said. “We’ll just wait. The good thing is it’s not something that will hold him out for the year.” Waters, a two-time Pro Bowl guard, sprained the foot during Saturday’s morning workout.
Other notable absences were receiver Craphonso Thorpe (bruised shoulder) and cornerback Lenny Walls (hamstring). Edwards said Walls” injury wasn’t serious.
Pollard & Page Impress
Rookie safety Bernard Pollard drew raves in college for his big hits, and it’s obvious he’ll make an impression this fall on special teams.
Assistant Mike Priefer, who ran a one-hour special-teams workout Sunday in the late-afternoon heat, said Pollard and fellow rookie safety Jarrad Page have shown a passion for hitting and will compete for playing time.
“They both like to hit, they’re both smart guys, and they both love the game of football,” Priefer said. “When you play special teams, you want to coach guys that love the game of football. You have to love it to be covering kickoffs (and) blocking on kickoff returns.”
