Chiefs Make Changes at Right Tackle, Nose Tackle

The Kansas City Chiefs have a new starter at right tackle: Ryan O'Callaghan.

Acquired off waivers on September 6th, O'Callaghan came from the New England Patriots, formerly the home of GM Scott Pioli.  O'Callaghan's rise to starter is no surprise - I think that was the plan eventually.  But what did surprise me is how quickly it came.  Previous starter Ikechuku Ndukwe, acquired prior to the start of the season as well, has been relegated to second team duty.

There's also a new starter at nose tackle: Ron Edwards

Tank Tyler has been the No. 1 nose tackle since the beginning of the season and started the first two games.  Edwards got the starting nod against the Eagles on Sunday.

Other changes include:

Jake O'Connell moves ahead of Brad Cottam as the No. 2 tight end

Jamaal Charles moves ahead of Dantrell Savage as the No. 2 running back
