As expected, the Kansas City Chiefs and the Arizona Cardinals will breaking up the monotony of training camp by trying to break each other’s bones.
The Chiefs have announced that the Cardinals will swing by Missouri Western State University during the week of August 5 for joint practices.
“Training camp is about us continuing our development and evaluating our players,” coach Romeo Crennel said. “We are very excited to be hosting another NFL team in St. Joseph. This will give us another opportunity to further evaluate our team under a different set of circumstances before we get into our preseason schedule.”
The visit will come after the Cardinals face the Saints in the Hall of Fame game on August 4, and it will culminate in the Chiefs and the Cardinals squaring off at Arrowhead Stadium on Friday, August 10.
“There are many benefits to this arrangement and we appreciate Coach Crennel and the Chiefs working to make this happen,” Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt said. “Logistically, it makes a lot of sense since we play Sunday night in Canton and then Friday night at Kansas City, but I’ve always found there’s also great value in getting work against another team in a setting like this. We’re looking forward to it.”
So are we. When two different teams get together for training-camp practices, the chances of a fight or two breaking out increase significantly.
