A Few Changes to the Chiefs Depth Chart

New, comments

The Kansas City Chiefs made a few changes to their depth chart. 

Left Tackle

Wade Smith is now listed on the No. 1 team because Branden Albert is injured.  Barry Richardson is on the third team after being promoted from the practice squad.  Ikechuku Ndukwe does not appear on the LT depth chart anymore.

Nose Tackle

With the Tank Tyler trade, there is not a nose tackle behind starter Ron Edwards.  We really don't know who will play the nose if Edwards isn't in there.

Cornerback

Mike Richardson moves ahead of Donald Washington as the second right corner.  This is important to note - Richardson got a healthy dose of playing time last week while Maurice Leggett and Washington did not log any defensive snaps.

Not many changes but still some important moves.  The depth at nose tackle is a major question mark at this point (I honestly have no clue who would play in the instance Edwards goes down).  And, it appears Mike Richardson, signed just last week, is close to locking down the nickelback job.
