QB Patrick Mahomes said he won't be taking much time off now that the Chiefs have finished their offseason practice schedule. Mahomes indicated he would gather the receivers who stay in Kansas City for some throwing sessions before the start of training camp in late July. “I'll definitely be throwing the majority of the time,'' Mahomes said. “This is the time now when you've kind of got to start to go. When we get to training camp you don't want your arm being sore especially when those days start adding up. I'll definitely be out there throwing the ball a lot. A lot of the guys stay here so it's easy to get guys out there.''

Rookie safety Juan Thornhill (22) was wearing the baseball cap at mini-camp this week and not practicing because of a sore calf. But Thornhill was getting a lot of playing time before the injury and should be a strong challenger for a starting spot at training camp."I like what I've seen,'' coach Andy Reid said. "I think he has a chance to be a real good football player. He's another one that you would have like to seen be healthy throughout here but he was doing some nice things for us. You can tell he's got good instincts and understands the game. He was making plays on the ball.''

Chiefs receivers found Patrick Mahomes' deep throws to be tough to keep up with during mini-camp practice on Wednesday, when the offense frequently worked with a strong breeze at its back. Demarcus Robinson and Sammy Watkins were unable to catch up to deep passes that were carried by the wind. “We need days like that, even rainy days,'' Robinson said. “You've just got to go with the circumstances and what's going on with the weather . . . Any day is tough to keep up with him. He challenges us with all the throws he has.''

Charvarius Ward is among the top three cornerbacks at Chiefs' mini-camp, joining veterans Kendall Fuller and Bashaud Breeland. Ward joined the playing rotation late last season as a rookie and his play impressed the Chiefs. He said his biggest off-season goal was to improve his conditioning. “Last year in the Seahawks game, my first game out there, I was pretty tired,'' Ward said. “I told the coaches to take me out of the game at halftime because I could barely breathe.'' That request was predictably refused. “They kept me in,'' he said. “They told me I couldn't come out . . . It was a learning experience for me. I got better after that game, a lot better.''

He's a backup to Damien Williams at least for now but running back Carlos Hyde has stayed busy at Chiefs mini-camp. Hyde, who signed with the Chiefs as a free agent this year, has occasionally played in the lineup with Williams and frequently has been used as a receiver out of the backfield. "For a running back like me who likes to catch the ball . . . it would be like a dream come true," Hyde said. "It's not just a one-dimensional running back here. You do it all. You line up at receiver. You actually run routes. You're not just a decoy . . . You really get to showcase your ability. I didn't know they used the running back so much in the passing game until I got here. It put a smile on my face." Hyde came to the Chiefs looking to revive his career after diminished production last year with the Browns and Jaguars. "I had other teams I could have looked into," Hyde said. "I've just seen what previous running backs and what success they had in Kansas City with coach (Andy) Reid. I felt like this is a good place for a running back to get on the right track."

The Chiefs can't get tight end Travis Kelce back fast enough. Kelce isn't practicing at mini-camp after having offseason ankle surgery and the Chiefs are struggling at his position without him. Veteran backup Blake Bell had a couple of catches but David Wells and Nick Kelzer combined to drop several passes. Look for the Chiefs to try to add depth behind Kelce, who is expected back by the start of training camp. The Chiefs lost last season's backup, Demetrius Harris, to the Browns in free agency.

Wide receiver Sammy Watkins had a busy day as the Chiefs began a three-day mini-camp. With the Chiefs practicing without the suspended Tyreek Hill, Watkins was the only wide receiver to catch a pass from Patrick Mahomes in 11-on-11 work except for Demarcus Robinson, who had one reception. Watkins in full team drills had five catches, including the play of the day when he got open deep down the middle to catch a long pass from Mahomes. Watkins also caught two passes from Mahomes in 7-on-7 work and ran a couple of end-arounds that might have gone to Hill had he been participating.

Patrick Mahomes was shut down by the Chiefs from playing pickup basketball during the offseason but he will participate in a celebrity softball game before a Royals game this weekend at Kauffman Stadium. “I got the OK,'' he said. “Hopefully I can hit some home runs (so) I don't have to run around the bases. I'm going to try not to be (competitive). I'm going to try to just take it easy, enjoy it, get to see a lot of people and build some great relationships.'' Mahomes was a baseball player of note in high school and college as a shortstop and pitcher but said he hopes to be stuck in the outfield now. “I haven't taken a ground ball in a couple of years now,'' he said.

Continuing his habit of showing up for high-profile sporting events, Patrick Mahomes attended the recent Stanley Cup final games between the Blues and the Bruins in nearby St. Louis along with Travis Kelce and other teammates. Mahomes in April attended the Final Four in Minneapolis, where Texas Tech played. “It's awesome to me to kind of go to these (major) sporting events that I've watched my whole life,'' the Chiefs' quarterback said. “More I guess you could say than going to concerts and doing stuff like that I like kind of going to these Stanley Cups -- I wish I could have made it to the NBA Finals but it's really far away – and then the Final Four.''
