Smith leading hungry Chiefs at camp

The first pass Alex Smith threw Tuesday was to tight end Tony Moeaki, who might have a hard time making the Kansas City Chiefs after an injury-plagued start to his career. Then came passes to Tyler Shoemaker, Rico Richardson and Junior Hemingway. It was about as modest of a start as you could get to Smith’s first training camp with the Chiefs — a bunch of throws to a tight end and wide receivers who may not be around in six weeks. Still, those passes on an unseasonably cool morning on the campus of Missouri Western represented the first step by Smith toward fulfilling expectations that have steadily grown ever since he was acquired from the 49ers this past offseason.
