Chiefs TE Jake O'Connell has caught fire in practice recently, according to's Josh Looney.

O'Connell has scored three TDs over the last three days, with each score "going down as highlight material." Rookie Tony Moeaki will be the Chiefs' primary pass-catching tight end, but O'Connell can provide athletic depth.
