The Kansas City Chiefs have made their roster cuts getting down to 53 players but some of those 21 players who were realsed will be coming back. The KC Chiefs can start creating their eight-man practice squad on Saturday at 11:00 a.m. (Arrowhead Time).

Those eligible for the practice squad are:

Eligibility for the practice squad is limited to players who do not have an accrued season in the NFL, or were on an active list (53-man roster) for fewer than nine games during their only accrued seasons. Players that have served two seasons on a practice squad are eligible for a third season only if the team has at least 53 players on its active/inactive list for the duration of that player's employment.

Minimum weekly salary: $5,700. But there is no limit on how much a team can pay a practice squad player. For example, if the Chiefs wanted to keep a practice squad player on their team they could offer him more money to decline other offers. Or they could pluck other teams' practice squad players that way.

If a team signs a player off another team's practice squad, they're committing at least three weeks of salary to him.
