Chiefs Update 10/8 - Wade Wilson - 10-08-2008

From the Truman Sports Complex

The Chiefs went through a 90-minute practice outdoors on a spectacular fall morning on Wednesday.

This time was spent on themselves, which is what the Chiefs will do in their three bye week practices.

?You try to specifically try to pick out things you need to improve on and that?s how are practices are put together,? Herm Edwards said.

The areas of improvement Edwads highlighted were on offense, stopping the three and outs, being more consistent with the running game and dialing up some big plays in the passing game. On defense, he mentioned a need to improve third down defense and eliminate the big plays.

Edwards said there were no personnel changes planned for this week or next. ?The more they play the more they will gain some confidence,? Edwards said of his young roster. ?We are at the point now, after five games, they?ve got to feel like they know what it takes. They need to continue to prepare. That?s the whole thing now, teaching them how to prepare each week with a great focus.?

The Chiefs will not begin working on preparation for the Tennessee Titans until next week, although the coaches will begin film study over the weekend.

LT Branden Albert did some individual stuff during the practice but will not work with the offense at all this week. Edwards said they hoped to have him back next week, but only time and his right elbow will decided that. LB Donnie Edwards was at practice but he continues to rehab his sprained right ankle and did not take part in workout.

As expected, Brodie Croyle took most of the snaps with the first team offense.
