The Kansas City Chiefs have cut running back Shaun Draughn. As usual these days, the news comes from Draughn himself on Twitter.
It's been real KC I'm honestly going to miss this place, the great fans & people I've met in my two years here!! Thank God 4 the opportunity— Shaun Draughn (@2ShaunDraughn0) August 31, 2013
Draughn was the third running back on the Chiefs roster, behind Jamaal Charles and Knile Davis, and ahead of Cyrus Gray. It would appear that Gray is making the roster if those are the only three players left. Gray had a solid performance in the final preseason game against Green Bay, prompting some folks to wonder if he could make the 53-man roster.
Draughn came into the league in 2011 as an undrafted free agent. He joined the Chiefs during the 2011 season, spending most of it on the practice squad. In 2012 he ran the ball 59 times for 233 yards and two touchdowns.
Barring any other moves, this looks like your running back depth chart: 1.) Jamaal Charles 2.) Knile Davis 3.) Cyrus Gray.
