KANSAS CITY, Mo. — 2:40 p.m. | The Kansas City Chiefs said it's good to be back in St. Joseph, Missouri, for training camp.

The veteran Chiefs players arrived in St. Joseph on Monday. Last year, training camp stayed at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium due to COVID-19, but the team is back and starts practicing tomorrow.

Practice is open to season ticket holders on Wednesday, and Thursday's practice will be open to the general public with tickets reserved in advance.

1:30 p.m. | Patrick Mahomes grows sports empire by joining the Sporting Kansas City ownership group.

Mahomes is also a part owner of the Kansas City Royals, and his fiancee, Brittany Matthews, is a co-owner of the Kansas City NWSL, the professional women's soccer team in Kansas City. KSHB 41 News reporter Aaron Ladd tweeted what Mahomes said in a news release from Sporting KC:

9:15 a.m. | Veterans reported to camp on Monday including the recently acquired Orlando Brown.

The Chiefs traded their first-round pick with the Baltimore Ravens for Brown. The new left tackle previously said that he knows his job is to protect Patrick Mahomes.

KSHB 41 News reporter Aaron Ladd said Brown, originally a right tackle until last season, spent the off season studying left tackles.

The Chiefs are ready for fans in the stands, and President Mark Donovan said they are prepping for 100% capacity at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium.

Training camp will officially kick off Wednesday with the first full-team practice. The practice will be open only to season ticket holders.
