Savage, Wade Move Up in Chiefs Latest Depth Chart

There was some movement with the Kansas City Chiefs depth chart as they begin to prepare for the Philadelphia Eagles.

There were changes at a handful of positions.  Here they are with a few notes under each one.

Wide Receiver

  • Quinten Lawrence moves ahead of Terrance Copper
  • Bobby Wade on first team
  • Mark Bradley and Bobby Engram move to second and third team

Lawrence did not record a reception against the Raiders but started the game with a 16 yard run on a reverse.  Wade led all Chiefs receivers with six receptions and 72 yards.

Tight End

  • Jake O'Connell moves ahead of Brad Cottam

Cottam's been non-existent in two games this year.  O'Connell saw some time yesterday but did not record a reception.  Remember, Todd Haley tight ends have historically been asked to focus on blocking, as well as receiving.

Running Back

  • Dantrell Savage moves from fourth to second
  • Jamaal Charles now third

Savage had a good game yesterday.  He recorded 26 rushing yards on three carries.  You can also add in the seven yards per reception he had in the receiving game (six receptions).  Charles was listed as inactive.

Defensive Back

  • Donald Washington moves to the second team ahead of Ricardo Colclough

Leggett is still listed behind Flowers but Washington, a rookie, leapfrogged Colclough.

Punt/Kick Returner

  • Wade now No. 1 punt returner
  • Savage now No. 1 kick returner (Charles third team)

Wade returned all six punts yesterday for a total of nine yards.  It was hardly impressive but no one has separated themselves from the pack.  Because of Sebastian Janikowski's booming leg yesterday, the Chiefs didn't record any kick returns.
