Chiefs Tinker With the Depth Chart in Light of Injuries

The Kansas City Chiefs have been getting a good look at a few backups with a few injuries that have been cropping up.

The offensive line remains pretty much intact but a few backups have moved around. Same goes for the defensive line.

Here are the changes to the Chiefs depth chart:

Offensive Line

Previously, Wade Smith was listed as Brian Waters' backup at LG.  With Waters' injury, Andy Alleman is now the backup. He played in place of Waters last week against the Cleveland Browns.

Ikechuku Ndukwe was also listed as the backup RT. With Ryan O'Callaghan's injury last week, Barry Richardson is now the backup.

Tight End

Leonard Pope is still the starter but Brad Cottam moves up from the third team to the second team with his performance the last three weeks.

Defensive Line

Dion Gales was listed as Glenn Dorsey's backup at RDE last week. This week that honor goes to rookie Alex Magee, who played in place of Dorsey last weekend.

Safety

No changes here. DaJuan Morgan played in place of an injured Jon McGraw last weekend but the depth chart says McGraw is still on the first team.

Punt Returner

Last week it was Bobby Wade on the first team. This week it's Mark Bradley, who returned punts and kicks last weekend.
