KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Chiefs return to the practice field Tuesday afternoon in preparation for Saturday’s preseason game against the Minnesota Vikings minus a few starters on both side of the ball.
Running back Jamaal Charles (foot) and wide receiver Dwayne Bowe (quad) headline the offense.
Charles suffered his injury moving out of the training camp dorms and did not play Sunday night. The All-Pro running back is making progress, according to team spokesman Ted Crews.
Bowe’s injury was revealed after Sunday night’s game, Crews said.
Starting strong safety Eric Berry (heel) won’t participate in the afternoon session, but “is getting better,” according to Crews. Berry missed the final two days of training camp and did not travel with the team for the Sunday night’s preseason game.
The Chiefs are evaluating starting inside linebacker Joe Mays, who suffered a wrist injury Sunday night.
The remaining players not practicing are wide receiver Junior Hemingway (hip), offensive tackle Ryan McKee (knee), outside linebacker Josh Martin (quad) and defensive lineman Jermelle Cudjo (hamstring).
Starting right defensive end Mike DeVito (hand) is expected to practice Tuesday afternoon.
