Zac Diles will be released by Kansas City Chiefs, according to report

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

The KC Chiefs set their first 53-man roster on Saturday night but that is already changing. According to a report, the Chiefs are releasing linebacker Zac Diles.

Linebacker Zac Diles survived the first day of NFL roster cuts. He won't make it two. The Kansas City Chiefs are releasing Diles, according to Adam Caplan.

As Caplan mentioned there, he's been reporting that the Chiefs have been looking for veteran inside linebacker help. They don't have much cap space so it'd likely be a veteran minimum type of situation. Diles signed with the Chiefs this offseason after spending the 2012 season with the Tennessee Titans. He came into the league in 2007. He's 28 years old.

The Chiefs inside linebacker depth chart takes another curious turn. Inside linebacker Nico Johnson has a high ankle sprain and is not currently practicing, raising some questions about his availability for Week 1.

We know who the starters are -- Derrick Johnson and Akeem Jordan. But the shuffling of the backups continue. Edgar Jones, an outside linebacker, was traded to Dallas on Saturday night.

Brutal business for Diles, surviving last night's cuts and now getting released today.
