KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Kansas City Chiefs coach Todd Haley says he expects his players to arrive at training camp already in shape, and he'll determine quickly who is not.
The Chiefs open camp Friday in River Falls, Wis. Haley will use the day to have all players run three 300-yard shuttles in times that have been set according to position.
Those who don't make the allotted times risk being held out of the first practice on Saturday. And they could be held out until they pass the test.
Haley says there's not enough time in camp for players to work themselves into shape because of everything else they need to do to get ready for the season.
The Chiefs' first-year coach says players were told last month that training camp would begin with the shuttle runs.
