Chiefs' offseason program begins Monday

The Kansas City Chiefs will gather as a group at their practice facility on Monday for the first time since losing their wild-card playoff game to the Indianapolis Colts in January. The Chiefs are among the NFL teams that will begin their off-season workout program.

The first two weeks of the program will mainly consist of strength, conditioning and physical rehabilitation for players who need it. Over the subsequent three weeks the Chiefs may get on the practice field, but no team offense vs. defense drills are permitted.

Practice begins for the Chiefs on May 24 with the start of a three-day rookie camp. Full-squad practice begins on May 27.

The program concludes with a three-day mini-camp that begins on June 17.

Training camp at Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph will begin in late July.
