ST. JOSEPH, Mo--Less than two weeks till the Chiefs preseason game with the Bengals.

As our KC Blitz report continues we're going back to St. Joseph to Chiefs training camp.

The Chiefs finished up practice Monday with an off day Tuesday. They'll be back in action on Wednesday.

In the meantime as camp keeps going, the defense and special teams got plenty of chances to work on the little things.

In the chiefs 9-0 start last season the defense only allowed 12.3 points per game. But in their playoff loss to the Colts they gave up 35 2nd half points.

Chiefs defensive coordinator Bob Sutton sounds happy to get the defense back to work.

"Drilling down on the technique, hand placement, foot work all those things. And those still need a lot of work and that's what camp is for. Take advantage of these reps we get. A lot of reps out here the way Andy has it set up. It's really a valuable tool for us," said Bob Sutton.

"It's a good thing to have a lot of guys that create competition. Guys get banged up, especially in the preseason, you get banged up, so you are going to have to have guys to go to. Cause you never know when a star is going to come out," said Dave Toub.
