Chiefs coach Andy Reid said Thursday that tight end Tony Moeaki, who underwent an arthroscopic procedure on his knee this offseason, could be out until training camp. "Probably see him at training camp, Reid said. He was asked if Moeaki would be ready when training camp starts. Well see," Reid said. "But right now, Im thinking he will be, but well see how it goes. Hes working like crazy.
The Contra Costa Times reports that Raiders rookie running back Latavius Murray remains sidelined during minicamp with a sore foot. Murray, a sixth-round pick from Central Florida, is competing with Rashad Jennings to be the No. 2 running back in Oakland behind Darren McFadden.
The Contra Costa Times reports the departure of Brandon Myers to the Giants in free agency left a huge void for the Raiders to fill at tight end. Myers led the Raiders in receptions last season, and he played almost every down, while David Ausberry and Richard Gordon bided their time on the sideline. Ausberry and Gordon are back for another crack at earning more playing time. The Raiders drafted Nick Kasa and Mychal Rivera as a means of creating more competition. Its pretty wide open, coach Dennis Allen said. All those guys are doing a nice job. Obviously, its hurt not having Kasa (hamstring) out there because hes a guy we really anticipated being able to step-in and potentially fill a role for us. So, hopefully, well get him out there soon. The big thing, again, with those guys, just like it is with everyone else, its going to be the consistency issue because they are relatively young at the position.
