KANSAS CITY, Mo. — As part of the NFL’s ongoing response to the coronavirus pandemic, the league told teams Tuesday that training camps must be held at team facilities.

ESPN NFL reporter Adam Schefter reported Tuesday afternoon that all NFL teams will be required to keep their training camps at team facilities.

For the Kansas City Chiefs, that would mean training camp would be held at the team’s facilities at the Truman Sports Complex and not at the University of Western Missouri in St. Joseph.

A Kansas City Chiefs spokesperson told 41 Action News the team has not received anything official from the NFL, but would send out additional information when they had something to share.

Missouri Western State University Athletic Director Dr. Josh Looney said in a statement to 41 Action News that the university is awaiting confirmation of any league policy.

"The University has been in active discussions with the Chiefs in planning for Training Camp to return to MWSU this summer," Looney said.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
