Leonard Pope Now the Chiefs No. 1 Tight End

According to the Kansas City Chiefs latest depth chart, Leonard Pope is now the No. 1 tight end on the roster.  He passed Sean Ryan, who was inactive in yesterday's 16-10 victory over the Oakland Raiders.

Pope has been more of a blocker than a receiver in his few games here.  Yesterday he caught three passes for 11 yards in his first start for the Chiefs.

Will this change anything?  Doubtful.  The Chiefs haven't featured the tight end much in the last few games.

Savage demonted at punt returner

As expected, Dantrell Savage has been moved back to the second team punt returner.  Bobby Wade is now No. 1.

Savage dropped a pass and fumbled a kickoff, which brought about some words with head coach Todd Haley as he walked off the field (CBS sure loves those shots).

After the jump, a few more interesting changes to the Chiefs depth chart as they prepare for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Leggett ahead of Morgan at both safety spots

Does this tell you anything about what the coaching staff thought about DaJuan Morgan starting at free safety eight days ago?

Jon McGraw, back from injury, is on the first team at free safety followed by Leggett and then Morgan.

Leggett is also listed as Mike Brown's backup at strong safety.

Chambers officially opposite Bowe

After a two touchdown performance against the Jaguars, receiver Chris Chambers was still listed behind Bobby Wade on the depth chart.  Today Chambers officially secures the starting nod.

This was more of a formality at this point, I think, since Wade was inactive the last two games.

Smith moves up

No surprise here.  Kolby Smith is on the second team RB.  Savage had a rough week, being surpassed at both running back and punt returner.

Smith carried the ball 9 times for 12 yards yesterday.
