Speculation begins on a Jamaal Charles holdout
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

CBS affiliate KCTV in Kansas City reported Tuesday evening that Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles is planning to hold out of training camp. When asked about the subject, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said Charles might indeed not show up for the start of camp. The Chiefs expect him to show up according to the Kansas City Star

Camp opens on Wednesday for the Chiefs with the first practice on Thursday. Charles is allegedly seeking a new deal as he's paid $9 million per year less than Adrian Peterson and doesn't make as much as Reggie Bush and Ray Rice. Charles scored 19 touchdowns for the Chiefs last season.

Eric Fisher getting an early start
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Chiefs left tackle Eric Fisher, last year's No. 1 overall pick, practiced with rookies and fringe players at Tuesday's minicamp ahead of the full-squad training camp that opens Thursday, reports ESPN.com. Fisher is coming back from shoulder and sports hernia surgeries.

"I had the surgeries, so I needed to get out here, get situated before the vets get here," Fisher said. "I’m glad to be here early so I can get a jump on things."

Fisher played right tackle last year, so the extra time should help him adjust to protecting Alex Smith's blind side. He said he hasn't lost strength despite not being able to bench press following the shoulder operation.

"I’ve been in there working," he said. "When you can’t bench, there’s other things you can do. That’s what I was doing."

Kyle Williams back from torn ACL
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Chiefs receiver Kyle Williams, who tore the ACL in his left knee for the second time last year, was a full participant Monday as the team began a three-day camp for rookies and selected veterans, reports ESPN.com. Williams will vie to replace Dexter McCluster at slot receiver.

"The knee feels good," Williams told the website. "It feels stable. It feels like a solid knee. I feel like myself out there. I felt like last year when I came in I could help. I feel the same way this year."

Williams made 47 catches in four seasons with the 49ers.

Travis Kelce moving well without knee brace
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, who missed virtually his entire rookie season with a knee injury, went through a full practice Monday for the first time in nearly a year, reports ESPN.com. Kelce "moved around well and did so without a brace or any other kind of protection on the knee," the report said.

"From here, it’s just a matter of getting back into football shape and getting ready to play a 16-game season," Kelce said.

The 6-5, 260-pounder "figures large" in the Chiefs' plans for getting more production out of the tight end position, the website said.

Chiefs make roster moves
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Chiefs will begin full-squad training camp on Thursday without running back Joe McKnight and defensive back David Van Dyke, reports ESPN.

McKnight (knee) and Van Dyke (hamstring) will begin on the physically unable to participate list. McKnight is a candidate to make the regular-season roster. With a strong showing both out of the backfield and as a kick returner, McKnight could win a spot as a backup to Jamaal Charles and Knile Davis.
