11:45 a.m. | Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said offensive lineman Darryl Williams is in COVID-19 protocols.

Several other players were also out Sunday.

10:17 a.m. | Practice has been moved indoors for the remainder of the day. That means it will be closed to the public, but the Chiefs said today's tickets will also be valid on Thursday.

10:03 a.m. | Practice has been moved indoors due to inclement weather.

9:55 a.m. | Practice has been delayed by lightning.

9:45 a.m. | Somewhat of a dreary Sunday morning in Chiefs Kingdom didn't stop the team from clocking in early for practice at training camp in St. Joseph, Missouri.

Running back Darwin Thompson was first on the field Sunday, followed shortly by safety Tryann Mathieu, Patrick Mahomes and the quarterback squad.

Some players left pads behind as they recovered from injuries.

Linebacker Willie Gay (concussion) and guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, who had a brace on his right hand Sunday morning, did not suit up for practice.
