Chiefs’ Gonzalez OK

August 8, 2005


— All-Pro tight end Tony Gonzalez has no broken bones in his injured left foot, the Kansas City Chiefs said Sunday.

Gonzalez, who had surgery on the same foot in the offseason and is being limited to one practice a day during training camp, was injured during a 1-on-1 drill Saturday night. X-rays revealed no breaks, and he came out halfway through Sunday night's practice and caught passes on the sidelines.

Coach Dick Vermeil had scheduled a full workout in pads, but changed the format to shorts and helmets after a recent spate of injuries.

"You don't realize how intense it gets until you study the practice tapes," Vermeil said. "There were some unbelievable collisions with good players against good players."

Running back Priest Holmes sat out the practice, after being kicked while being tackled in Saturday night's practice. He should return to workouts this morning, Vermeil said.

Another tight end, Kris Wilson, remained sidelined with a groin injury.

The Chiefs focused on special-team play during Sunday morning's workout.
