[ChiefsWarpath.com] Training camp update for Thursday, Aug. 13th.
Gafford In, Purdum Out
Days after rookie long snapper Tanner Purdum’s mental error caused Chiefs coach Todd Haley to lash out at his special-teams unit, Purdum learned Thursday that he’s out of a job.
Kansas City released Purdum before Thursday’s practice session and signed former Chiefs snapper Thomas Gafford to replace him.
Gafford played nine games with the Chiefs last year before he was cut following offseason practice.
Guard Herb Taylor, linebacker Zach Thomas, safety DaJuan Morgan and running back Kolby Smith sat out Thursday’s session.
No Practice on Friday
The Chiefs have no practice and will travel to Kansas City for Saturday’s preseason opener against Houston.
