Today's Chiefs practice report

Every Chiefs player except right guard Jon Asamoah (calf) and defensive lineman Allen Bailey (death of his father) participated in practice Wednesday. Linebacker Nico Johnson (ankle) practiced for the first time in two weeks.

The three players the Chiefs pulled off waivers this week from Seattle (defensive lineman Jaye Howard, tight end Sean McGrath and cornerback Ron Parker) practiced for the first time with their new team.

I saw something today I don’t remember seeing before: Andy Reid spending time (however briefly) watching the defense instead of the offense when they were working on separate fields.

I would expect Reid to spend his time with the offense. He’s the playcaller. It’s why he hired a veteran, Bob Sutton, as the defensive coordinator and didn’t feel it necessary to hire a veteran as his offensive coordinator.
