As expected, the Kansas City Chiefs have placed TE Tony Moeaki on injured reseve after he suffered a torn ACL in the preseason finale against the Green Bay Packers last week. The Chiefs also announced 26 other roster moves in order to get down to the 53-man roster at the roster cut deadline today.
The following players were waived or released:
NT Harold Ayodele, FB Shane Bannon, LB Justin Cole, FB Mike Cox, DT Dion Gales, TE Charlie Gantt, OT Bobby Greenwood, G Chris Harr, G Darryl Harris, WR Jeremy Horne, OT Mike Ingersoll, LB Micah Johnson, LB Amara Kamara, S Reshard Langford, WR Quinten Lawrence, OT Butch Lewis, WR Zeke Markshausen, OT David Mims, G Lucas Patterson, S Ricky Price, TE Cody Slate, NT Anthony Toribio, WR Verran Tucker, LB Pierre Walters and CB Demond Washington.
And fifth round pick LB Gabe Miller was placed on injured reserve as well.
There aren't any major surprises in there but a few guys are notable including Cole, Horne, and Tucker. I would've thought Slate makes the roster with Moeaki's injury but apparently not. Also of note is that both Mims and Lewis were released. We figured they'd keep one of those guys.
The next step? Practice squad. We'll be talking about that shortly.
