KANSAS CITY, Mo. — 3:45 p.m. | The Chiefs have just announced some roster moves.

The Chiefs signed two tackles, David Steinmetz and Evin Ksiezarczyk, adding depth to their offensive line.

Rookie wideout Justyn Ross has been placed on injured reserve as he deals with a foot injury. He recently underwent foot surgery.

Ross signed as an undrafted free agent with the Chiefs less than three months ago and will have to wait until next year to hit the field.

3:24 p.m. | Earlier today, Donovan spoke on planned renovations for GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium to accommodate the 2026 FIFA World Cup.

Several rows on the northeast side of Arrowhead Stadium will be removed to create enough space for a World Cup soccer field, according to Donovan.

Seats will also be removed in corners along the opposite sideline.

Renovations are set to start during the spring of 2025 after the completion of the 2024 NFL season.

2:45 p.m. | Back to Chiefs President Mark Donovan. As the NFL continues to add to its international presence with more games in Europe and Mexico, Donovan hopes that the team will play in Germany for the first time next year.

“That’s our goal," Donovan said during today's press conference in St. Joseph.

Kansas City is one of four NFL teams with marketing rights in Germany.

2:02 p.m. | Former Chiefs wideout Tyreek Hill appeared on ESPN's First Take earlier today and discussed a wide range of topics, including his exit from Kansas City.

"It kind of broke my heart when I signed for Miami," Hill said. "I'm all about legacy, I'm all about history."

Hill previously discussed his departure from Kansas City on a podcast called "It Had To Be Said" released last month.

12:52 p.m. | As rain fell down in St. Joseph, the Chiefs moved training camp indoors. Here's some photos from inside.

12:13 p.m. | Donovan is now off the podium.

12:10 p.m. | Donovan also has high hopes for the 2023 NFL Draft, which the city will host as well.

NFL league reps were in Kansas City last week meeting with the Chiefs and the Sports Commission to map out additional details for the NFL Draft, according to Donovan.

12:00 p.m. | Chiefs President Mark Donovan touched on Kansas City hosting the 2026 FIFA World Cup and Arrowhead's planning and construction process.

Donovan also discussed capping attendance at training camp as the first practice open to the public approaches. He wouldn't give a concrete number but referenced past training camps when 15-20k attendees resulted in a "bad experience."

"It's a balancing act," Donovan said. "That one bad experience is really powerful."

11:00 a.m. | Training camp continues at Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph, as Kansas City Chiefs veterans report today.

There will be no practice held tomorrow. Training camp will continue July 27 at 9:15 a.m. but will only be open to Chiefs season ticket members.

Chiefs President Mark Donovan, Mosaic Life Care CEO Mike Poore and MWSU President Dr. Elizabeth Kennedy will be available to speak to the media today at 11:30 a.m.

Through Zoom, linebacker Nick Bolton, center Creed Humphrey and wideout Mecole Hardman will speak to the media today, starting with Bolton at 12:30 p.m.
