Chiefs tight end Demetrius Harris, who practiced on Sunday for the first time with the Kansas City Chiefs this season because he was waiting for his broken foot to mend, said he's prepared to play some in Thursday night's final preseason game in St. Louis.

It's going to be longer than that before the Chiefs get the full benefit of Harris' return.

"It's going to be several weeks I think with a guy that is coming off an injury, who hasn't practiced," offensive coordinator Doug Pederson. "Now, he's run routes and he's done some things that way but it's one thing to run routes on air versus [against] bodies on defense. It's going to take some time. We can't rush him back, either. We've got to continue to monitor that progress as we go."

Fantasy Impact: 

Still, Harris' return is positive news for the Chiefs and he'll be worth the wait. The Chiefs were at their best last season when they were able to use their three-tight end formations that featured Anthony Fasano, Travis Kelce and Harris.
