Chiefs TE Tony Moeaki (left knee scope) is questionable for training camp.
Moeaki has already been ruled out for OTAs, and his status for camp remains up in the air. His roster spot won't be guaranteed after the Chiefs drafted third-round pick Travis Kelce and signed Anthony Fasano this offseason. Moeaki is due $1.32 million in 2013, the final year of his rookie contract.
Chiefs head coach Andy Reid praised rookie TE Travis Kelce, comparing him to former Giants, Saints and Panthers TE Jeremy Shockey in terms of style of play and potential impact.
Reid plans to make opposing defenses honor Kelce's speed, having him line up in a variety of spots including split out wide. The Chiefs have revealed plenty of two-tight end formations during their offseason program with Kelce and Anthony Fasano both getting looks as receivers. While we're excited for Kelce's long-term prospects, we doubt he makes much of a fantasy impact in 2013.
Chiefs agreed to terms with No. 134 overall pick CB Sanders Commings on a four-year contract.
A true press-man corner that ran a 4.41 at the Combine, Commings will learn at the foot of a talented group in Kansas City. Brandon Flowers, Dunta Robinson and Sean Smith are locked in as the top-three corners.
New Chiefs QB Alex Smith has come away impressed with Dexter McCluster in OTAs.
"Seeing how fluid he is, going in and out of those roles has been impressive for me to watch," Smith said Wednesday. "It's easy to talk about in the meeting room to say let's put (a) receiver in and have him run routes and be natural. ... It's another thing to see it live. He's a special guy." McCluster's talent has always been seductive on the practice field, but has never really translated to games. It's unlikely Andy Reid will be able to accomplish what Todd Haley and Brian Daboll couldn't, and make McCluster's unique skills change games.
Chiefs signed S Quintin Demps, formerly of the Texans.
Demps, 28 next month, recorded 35 tackles and five pass breakups in 12 games with the Texans last season as a backup. He has never started a game in his five-year career since being a fourth-round pick of the Eagles. Demps will compete for a roster spot behind safeties Eric Berry and Kendrick Lewis.
Chiefs OT Donald Stephenson is "spending a lot of time at guard" in OTAs.
He's also running with the second team at left tackle. A 2012 third-rounder, Stephenson's path at tackle is currently blocked by Eric Fisher and Branden Albert. Stephenson played 377 snaps as a rookie, but got whipped in pass protection. Stephenson will be in the mix for swing-tackle duties. His 6-foot-6, 312-pound frame would be big for a guard.
The Chiefs have been tinkering with Pistol Spread formations at OTAs.
The club hired ex-Nevada coach Chris Ault -- Godfather of the Pistol -- as a consultant this offseason. Alex Smith has some history with Pistol formations from his time with Urban Meyer at Utah. The added dimension could make Andy Reid's offense more "multiple," but is unlikely to have a major impact on Smith's 2013 fantasy outlook. He will be a low-end, low-ceiling QB2.
