Chiefs roster cuts: Tony Moeaki waived as Chiefs make 22 roster moves

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

The Kansas City Chiefs have made their cuts to get down to 53 players ahead of Saturday's NFL roster cut down deadline. The Chiefs made 22 roster moves, including the release of Tony Moeaki and Tysyn Hartman. Find an updated Chiefs roster here. Remember, some of these players will be put on the Chiefs practice squad, which can be created at 11 a.m. (Arrowhead Time) on Sunday.

The Kansas City Chiefs roster moves are in and the 53-man roster is set -- for now. Tony Moeaki and Ricky Henry have been waived / injured, which means they will hit waivers and if unclaimed they will revert to the Chiefs IR list. The Chiefs cut 20 other players, totaling 22 roster moves on Saturday evening.

Among the notable moves by the Chiefs include the release of Moeaki, a 2010 third round pick. Injuries were a factor as he fractured his shoulder last week and was expected to miss some time. Tysyn Hartman, safety out of Kansas State, was also released along with Marcus Dixon -- both players I had on my Chiefs 53-man roster prediction. At running back the Chiefs released Shaun Draughn, which gave a roster spot to Cyrus Gray. TE Demetrius Harris, the former basketball player, did not make the list either.
