The Kansas City Chiefs Release A Linebacker And Promote a Safety

With a big 'ole hat tip to Arrowhead Addict, we have word that the Kansas City Chiefs have promoted S Rickey Price to the 53-man roster while simultaneously releasing LB Charlie Anderson to make room for Price.

Price had been sitting on the practice squad for a while, seeing little action in his Chiefs career. He's a young, interchangeable guy so don't think too much about this. The promotion of a safety is perhaps an indication that the two safeties who are on the injury report this week, Kendrick Lewis and Jon McGraw, may need some extra help this weekend. 

LB Charlie Anderson is your classic journeyman, special teams linebacker. He played in a copule of games this year for the Chiefs although you probably didn't hear his name. He could even be back this season on the KC roster, so don't be surprised. He does not count at all towards the roster now. 

So, right now, the Chiefs have an opening on the practice squad. That spot CANNOT be filled by the released Anderson because he does not qualify for the practice squad anymore. 

Expect a familiar name to be the 8th member of the Kansas City Chiefs practice squad soon.
