NFL releases Chiefs' 2018 preseason schedule




The National Football League released its preseason schedule on Wednesday, and it won't take long for the Chiefs to face an old friend.

After a home game against the Houston Texans and a road game against the Atlanta Falcons, the Chiefs will head to Chicago in week three to face the Bears and new head coach Matt Nagy, who was the Chiefs' offensive coordinator in 2017 and had been on coach Andy Reid's staff since he arrived in Kansas City in 2013.

The Chiefs will then finish the preseason with a home game against the Green Bay Packers.

Dates and times for the contests will be announced at a later date. All four will be shown on KCTV5.

The NFL’s regular-season schedule likely will be announced soon as well. The league has announced it in mid-April the last two years.

The Chiefs already know that in addition to their annual home-and-away slate against their AFC West foes, they will have home games against the Cardinals, Ravens, Bengals, Jaguars and 49ers and road games against the Browns, Rams, Patriots, Steelers and Seahawks.

The NFL's preseason slate will begin Aug. 2 with the annual Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio. This year, the Bears will take on the Baltimore Ravens at 7 p.m.

Reggie Ragland leads Chiefs' reshaped crew at inside linebacker

Two years into an NFL career, he will asked not only to step up his game but become more of a team leader in the absence of a veteran presence.

Patrick Mahomes? Yes. But there is something of a defensive equivalent with inside linebacker Reggie Ragland.

The Chiefs see Ragland as an essential piece of defense that will feature several new parts, including at his position.


“He’s ready to take the next step,” defensive lineman Chris Jones said of Ragland.
Unlike Mahomes, who played one game as a rookie quarterback in 2017, Ragland appeared in 12 and started 10, and it wasn’t his first season as a professional.


But it was his first action after sitting out his rookie season with the Buffalo Bills. Ragland, a former SEC defensive player of the year at Alabama and the Bills’ second-round draft choice, torn an ACL early in training camp and spent his first pro year rehabilitating.
The Chiefs acquired Ragland for a 2019 fourth-round pick before last season, and he appeared in his first NFL game in the fourth week, against Washington.
Ragland is a run-stuffing linebacker who has faith he can play every down.
“I feel like I am underrated as a cover guy, but as a three-down guy you want to be the main guy out there calling everything, and you want to get the guys lined up,” Ragland said. “I did it in college, I did it in high school, so for me as a player I want to be on the field when it’s crunch time, and most of the time third down is when it’s crunch time.”
Also in the fold at inside linebacker is newcomer Anthony Hitchens, a free-agent signee who spent his first four years with the Dallas Cowboys, where he appeared in 60 games with 48 starts. During this week of volunteer workouts, Ragland and Hitchens have begun getting to know each other. The camaraderie actually started before then.


“I’d been texting with him since I signed here,” Hitchens said. “We actually went to the (Royals) game last Thursday, talked for seven innings, and then we ended up eating after that.”
Improving run defense becomes a priority for a defense that allowed 118 yards per game, which ranked 25th in the NFL. The numbers improved over the final few weeks of the regular season, not coincidentally that’s when Ragland said he had fully recovered from his injury.
“It wasn’t until we got to the Giants game (11th week),” he said, “that’s when my knee was feeling fine it stopped being tender.”
The Chiefs also have second-year pro Ukeme Eligwe and Terrance Smith at the position. Not there is Derrick Johnson, the team’s career tackles leader who hit the free-agency market in February and hasn’t signed.
Johnson may have lost a step last season as he recovered from his second Achilles injury, but he was a leader and a strong locker room presence, traits Ragland will look to mirror.


“Keep studying the game and learn to do it how he did it,” said Ragland, who remains in constant contact with Johnson.

Kevin Pierre-Louis, also part of the inside linebacker rotation last season, also has moved on as the Chiefs reshape a position that will feature Ragland.
“I’m very comfortable now,” Ragland said. “As far as the defense is concerned, I’m more comfortable now.”

Chiefs suddenly have a crowd at running back


They’ve moved to fix that in recent weeks. The Chiefs signed two veteran backs, Damien Williams and Kerwynn Williams, and hope Spencer Ware can return from the knee injury that cost him all of last season.

They’ll join Hunt, who led the NFL in rushing as a rookie last season, and Charcandrick West, who led the Chiefs in rushing in 2015, to give Kansas City what appears to be a deep backfield.

"We’ve got a number of guys that have played and done well playing," Reid said. "In my mind and obviously in [general manager Brett Veach’s] mind, because he’s the one who did this, you can’t have enough of those guys. That’s a tough position and there was availability there. So we figured, listen, if we have a chance to get good players, let’s go ahead and better ourselves, let the competition be there and let’s see what happens.

"There’s going to be great competition right there. It’s going to be a pretty neat battle to watch."

Hunt will remain the starter. Reid has said the Chiefs would like to use Hunt more as a receiver. He was Kansas City’s leading receiver among backs with 53 catches, but he didn’t play a lot on third downs.

Otherwise, few things seem certain. Ware will have a role if he’s healthy. He rushed for 921 yards in 2016 to lead the Chiefs, but he injured his knee in the preseason last year and missed the whole regular season.

Some of the Chiefs’ activity at running back seems to be fueled by concerns that Ware won’t be ready to play when the regular season begins.

"I don’t know how much we’ll get him in [offseason practice] but he’ll be, I think, ready once we get to camp," Reid said.

Damien Williams and Kerwynn Williams both are four-year veterans, Damien with the Miami Dolphins and Kerwynn with the Arizona Cardinals. Neither has been a regular starter. Each has been effective at times, Damien mostly as a pass receiver. Kerwynn had his only career 100-yard game against the Chiefs in 2014.

West replaced the injured Charles as featured back in 2015. He lost the starting job to Ware the following season and was used mostly on third downs last year.

Don't look for the Chiefs to change uniforms soon, if ever


President Mark Donovan inevitably is approached at NFL meetings and other gatherings by Nike officials hoping to convince him the time has come for the Kansas City Chiefs to change their uniform style.

Donovan’s answer is always the same: Not a chance.
While the Tennessee Titans this week unveiled their new look and the Miami Dolphins and Jacksonville Jaguars will soon follow, the Chiefs will stick with a uniform that’s stayed much the same since the team was founded in 1960 as the Dallas Texans of the old AFL.

"If history holds true with the Hunt family, you’re not going to see many changes to the uniform -- nor would I argue for them, by the way,’’ Donovan said. “One of the things that makes our brand equity not unique but valuable is that we’re one of the very few that stuck to that tradition and honor that tradition.’’

The Chiefs added gold stripes around the jersey sleeves in the late 1960s and made the occasional modification with accessories like socks over the years. They changed the logo on their helmets in 1963 when the team moved to Kansas City and was renamed the Chiefs.

Otherwise, they could pass for the Texans 58 years ago. They don’t even alter anything for the Thursday night color rush games other than to go with their red pants with their red jerseys, a look that -- along with the red helmets -- makes the players look like giant hot dogs.

But that’s part of the organizational philosophy that started with founder Lamar Hunt and continued upon his death in 2006 when his son Clark became chairman.

“You get into the Thursday night color debate and you’re going to get strong opinions from a lot of different views on that,’’ Donovan said. “I actually like what we’ve done with the Thursday night games. I like the all-white [look]. I like the all-red. We’ve done some subtle things with socks to create our own take on it. I like that.

“I love some of the other teams’ jerseys and uniforms. I don’t like some of the other jerseys and uniforms on Thursday night. When you talk specifically about, ‘Could you sell more (jerseys by wearing alternate uniforms or changing the base uniform)?’ we have a lot of jerseys for sale that we don’t necessarily wear on the field: black jerseys, camo jerseys, red jerseys, white jerseys. There are a bunch of different color feels to that.’’

Donovan didn’t say the Chiefs would never change their uniforms. But he left the impression it’s highly unlikely in the foreseeable future, at least.

“I think it’s more important to us from a brand standpoint ... that we’re traditional,’’ he said.
