ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) — Tony Moeaki spent most of the Kansas City Chiefs’ offseason workouts watching from the sideline with a baseball cap on his head. Donnie Avery did the same thing.

They’re both happy to have a helmet on instead.

Moeaki had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee after last season, keeping the tight end from participating in the first round of practices under new coach Andy Reid. Avery only managed to get in a couple workouts before a high ankle sprain sidelined the wide receiver.

Both of them are allowed to practice with the rookies this week ahead of the rest of the veterans reporting to training camp on Thursday. The first full-squad workout is Friday.
