OL Laurent Duvernay-Tardif misses practice with illness

Chiefs offensive lineman Laurent Duvernay-Tardif did not participate in Thursday’s organized team activity because of an illness, according to a team spokesman.

Duvernay-Tardif, a second-year pro, practiced fully during the previous eight OTAs.

Second-year outside linebacker Dee Ford missed Thursday’s workout for personal reasons, the team said.

Wide receiver Albert Wilson, who hasn’t practiced fully since suffering a hamstring injury on June 3, returned to the field.

The Chiefs categorized Wilson’s participation as “limited,” per a team spokesman.

Meanwhile, wide receiver Jeremy Maclin, who sat out practice Wednesday with inflammation in his foot, returned to the field Thursday.

Also returning to the field was linebacker Derrick Johnson, who previously missed five straight OTA practices with inflammation to his right knee.

The Chiefs wrap up the voluntary OTAs Friday before holding a mandatory three-day minicamp on June 16-18.
