NS. JOSEPH, Mo. – When veterans of the Chiefs of Kansas City reported to training camp next week, defensive chief Frank Clark will be there, head coach Andy Reid said.
“Frank will be here. We will continue with that. Obviously we’re always watching it,” Reid told reporters Friday after the recruits and quarterbacks were reported to be camping at Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph.
Clark has charged with felony gun possession in June, following an arrest earlier this year. This is the first time he has been caught in two arrests this season.
Police said Clark and another man were pulled over for not displaying the license plate in front. Officers noticed a gun in a pocket in the back seat and found two loaded guns.
Clark was also arrested on June 20 in Los Angeles – his second arrest this season – after police said he was in illegal possession of a weapon. Clark’s attorney Alex Spiro said the gun belonged to a bodyguard. This June event is still under investigation.
With uncertainty surrounding Clark’s availability this season, captains have taken moves to prepare for his possible absence.
“We bring in old 97s [Jarran Reed] went back and put him back on the mix here last week, so I think it’s a good addition. I think we’ll be fine there,” Reid said.
Reid said defensive handling Chris Jones also has the flexibility to work on the defensive end.
The captain’s veterans reported Monday, and the first day of the public training camp is set for July 28 – open only to members who buy season tickets. The first practice session open to the public is July 29.
Keep in mind that autographs, meet and greets, and other special events have been postponed this year due to the pandemic. Although many hands-on activities are free, a ticket is required per person. Tickets must be book online through the Chiefs . website.
