Today's Chiefs rookie camp roundup: Undrafted rookie quarterback JR Nelson was the star in the rainy, 1 1/2-hour practice session. Nelson made two interceptions on deep passes, including one from by Patrick Mahomes II that he had to dive for in order to make the catch. Even when not throwing against Nelson, the passing game again struggled when veteran tight and Travis Kelce wasn't the intended receiver. The Chiefs completed 9-of-25 passes in 7-on-7 drills, following an 11-for-26 performance on Tuesday. Kelce had four of the couches in today's session, including two in the end zone. The three-day camp for rookies, quarterbacks and veterans coming off injuries concludes Thursday when the remainder of the roster reports to training camp. But Kelce and two other veterans who have participated in the first two sessions, quarterback Alex Smith and linebacker Derrick Johnson, will be excused by coach Andy Reid.

Today's Chiefs rookie camp roundup: The most significant development has the Chiefs began the three-day camp is that tight end Travis Kelce and linebacker Derrick Johnson were able to participate. Neither practiced during the off-season, Kelsey after having shoulder surgery and Johnson after tearing an Achilles tendon late last season. Both players could be available for full duty on Friday when the Chiefs begin full-squad training camp. Otherwise, since only rookies, quarterbacks and players coming off injuries could participate, the Chiefs operated with a skeleton crew. They had available, for instance, only three lineman on offense and two on defense. The Chiefs hadn't practiced together since the middle of June and the inactivity showed in the passing game. Even in a practice conducted with no contact, the Chiefs completed just 11-of-26 passes in their 7-on-7 drills. "Obviously, having five, six weeks off, it's just good to get back out, working our way back to real football, quarterback Alex Smith saiid.

Chiefs defensive lineman Chris Jones had arthroscopic knee surgery two weeks ago and will start training camp on the physically unable to perform list. It's unclear when Jones will be able to return to practice but the Chiefs would feel his absence if he's not available when the regular season begins.
