12:10 p.m. | The Chiefs are still stinging from their Super Bowl loss.

In Super Bowl LV the team lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 31 to nine. Over the course of training camp, multiple players have mentioned it while speaking to reporters.

Overall, the team wants to use it as motivation.

On Thursday, Chiefs wide receiver Demarcus Robinson said his goal is to be back in the Super Bowl again this year, according to KSHB 41 Sports anchor Hayley Lewis.

"Two years ago we finished the job and last year we didn't," Robinson said. "Were trying to get back and finish it."

11:50 a.m. | Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said in a press conference Thursday that he's trying to keep the tempo up at camp.

He said if you do that, there's no time for fighting, according to KSHB 41 Sports anchor Hayley Lewis.

11:00 a.m. | Chiefs head coach Andy Reid's training camp has a reputation for being tough.

Players are now on day three of padded practice, which according to defensive tackle Tershawn Wharton tests a player's fitness.

9:15 a.m. | It appears wide receiver Tyreek Hill will be practicing again Thursday after sitting out a few days due to knee tendonitis.

Also back in pads is safety Juan Thornhill, who was out with a groin injury. Offensive lineman Mike Remmers, came to practice but was not wearing pads. He has been out due to back spasms.

9:10 a.m. | Chiefs training camp has been going on for over a week now, and some players are starting to impress.

Among them is former University of Missouri linebacker Nick Bolton, who was a second-round draft pick for the Chiefs.

In training camp practice, Bolton has been credited with two interceptions and is beginning to become a popular feature of the Chiefs' Twitter.

As padded practice continues, injuries are also starting to make a difference. Linebacker Willie Gay Jr. was put on concussion protocol Wednesday, and wide receiver Tyreek Hill has been out since Tuesday with knee tendonitis. It is unclear when they will be back.
