    Chiefs featured TE Demetrius Harris in 23 snaps during Week 2

    Chiefs tight end Demetrius Harris (foot) played 23 snaps in Thursday's loss to the Broncos, but didn't record a stat. Harris showed some promise as the 2014 season wore on, but an injury sidelined him for much of the second half of the season. Even though he's healthy, the third-year tight end has seen little production offensively while his top competition for snaps in James O'Shaughnessy caught two balls for 54 yards Thursday. While he still outsnapped the rookie 23 to 14, a change could be around the corner if he can't begin impacting the game.

    Chiefs TE Demetrius Harris has foot surgery, misses practice

    Chiefs tight end Demetrius Harris underwent foot surgery and missed Tuesday's OTA practice as a result, according to the Kansas City Star. Harris previously endured a procedure on his foot, though the grafting process that normally takes place following it did not occur. Therefore, a second surgery was needed. Harris is expected to be ready to go by the time training camp comes around. "We knew there was a possibility of this happening," Reid said. "They want to try it without the graft initially, but we feel pretty good that he's going to be OK."

    Chiefs tight ends on brink of breakout?

    Chiefs general manager John Dorsey believes second-year tight end Travis Kelce will emerge this season. Kelce missed most of last season with a microfracture procedure on his knee. "[T]he emergence of a Travis Kelce being able to stretch the field as a tight end, hopefully that weapon adds another element to the passing game," Dorsey told "We took some nicks at the tight end position last year." But he's not the only one. Chiefs coach Andy Reid spotlighted second-year tight end and former hoops player Demetrius Harris as a potential contributor this year. "I'll tell you, he's a football player right now," Reid said when asked if he was still a basketball player. "I think this camp was great for him. I thought he played exceptionally well. He's so big and he's worked so stinking hard in the weight room, he's been living in there with Barry (Rubin) this offseason and you can tell. You can see he's gotten stronger." Harris is 6-foot-7 and 230 pounds -- perhaps more following his offseason workouts.

    Reid talks up rookie TE Harris

    When asked by the media Friday to talk about a player who has stood out through the Chiefs' OTAs, coach Andy Reid singled out undrafted hoopster-turned-tight end Demetrius Harris. "Harris has done a nice job," Reid said. "He came in as a basketball player and has just gotten better and better every day. You see him out here making plays. ... I'm proud of him for the way he's worked, that's not an easy transition. ... We saw the athleticism. John Dorsey, that was his guy and he saw the ability there. He had been a real good high school receiver so you bring him in and give him a shot. That's what those are all about -- those tryout positions. He came in and stayed in and made the most of it so far."
