Welcome to cut down day!
This is your open thread for today's roster cuts.
The Kansas City Chiefs roster is currently at 75 players. Sometime today it will come down to 53 players. The Chiefs will do that by cutting players, mostly younger guys, and perhaps placing some player(s) on injured reserve. Tony Moeaki and his fractured shoulder is the one to keep an eye on there.
We'll have full posts on all the Chiefs moves, but you can also find this post updated with the latest information.
Here is a link to the nuts and bolts of cut down day, waiver wires and practice squads.
