Chiefs Confirm Jared Gaither Release; David Mims On His Way

The Kansas City Chiefs have confirmed that offensive tackle Jared Gaither has been released from the 53-man roster. And, according to a couple of reports from 810 WHB's Jay Binkley and Soren Petro, he's expected to be replaced by OT David Mims from the practice squad. (The Chiefs haven't confirmed that yet.)

Mims went through training camp with the Chiefs and, as Petro said on Twitter, he certainly looks the part of an NFL player getting off the bus coming in at 6'8" and 335 pounds.

We haven't heard from Todd Haley on Gaither's release (and won't until tomorrow) so we're not sure why the move was made now. Most people are pointing out Gaither's false start penalty on his fill-in snap for an injured Brandon Albert.

The Chiefs offensive tackle situation is now: Brandon Albert, Barry Richardson, Steve Maneri and soon-to-be David Mims.
