The Kansas City Chiefs have established their 53-man roster and 8-man practice squad.

It sounds like that's going to change quickly. The agent for nose tackle Anthony Toribio tells Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that the Chiefs claimed his client off waivers.

NT Anthony Toribio was claimed by the Kansas City Chiefs, agent Joel Turner told Bob McGinn. "He truly hates leaving," Turner said.

This would mean the Chiefs would have to remove someone if Toribio his headed to the active roster of the practice squad.

He was originally signed by the Dolphins as a UDFA in 2008. He later went to the Packers. He was promoted to the active roster at the end of the season the last two years.

He stands 6'1" and 305 pounds.

It sounds like the Packers were planning on adding him to their practice squad if the Chiefs didn't claim him.

Toribio was actually in Arrowhead Stadium last week when the Packers played the Chiefs in the final preseason game.
