Chiefs Vs. Packers: Keep An Eye On Who Doesn't Play

We've been talking about the KC Chiefs preseason finale against the Green Bay Packers and how long the starters should play.

What we should focus on as well is who doesn't play in this game. That will give us a great idea of who will be cut in the coming days.

The final roster cut down day comes on Friday at 8:00 p.m. (Arrowhead Time). That means that 24 hours after the Chiefs line up against the Packers, 22 players will be cut.

The Chiefs likely have a pretty good idea of who the majority of those 22 players will be which means they may not want to waste playing time tomorrow night on a player they know they're going to cut. If that player gets hurt, it could end up costing them some money.

So if it's the fourth quarter and you notice a certain player hasn't made it into the game yet, that could be a sign.
