There were a few changes with the additions and subtractions made in the last week. Here are the changes:
Wide Receiver: Dwayne Bowe, Terrance Copper
Finally! Dwayne Bowe's "demotion" is over. Chiefs fans, and fans of good players across the league, were shocked when Todd Haley sent him down to the third string with the first release of the depth chart over a month ago.
The fact that he's on the first string for the real games doesn't surprise anyone, nor should it. Bowe is far and away the best receiver on the team.
Left Tackle: Branden Albert, Ikechuku Ndukwe
Herb Taylor was previously backing up Albert, who's firmly entrenched as the No. 1 left tackle, but he was released over the weekend. Ndukwe will be serving double duty as the No. 2 on the left and the No. 1 on the right side.
Left Guard: Brian Waters, Wade Smith
Center: Rudy Niswanger, Wade Smith
Again not much of a surprise. Andy Alleman was previously listed as the backup center but has been seeing all his time at guard.
Right Guard: Mike Goff, Andy Alleman
Things are starting to make a little more sense. Alleman was listed at center but had only seen time at guard. Hopefully Alleman gives Goff a run for his money.
Right Tackle: Ikechuku Ndukwe, Ryan O'Callaghan
One of the most interesting battles of camp. Both of these players weren't on the roster three weeks ago so this position is certainly up for grabs.
Tight End: Sean Ryan, Brad Cottam, Jake O'Connell
Wide Receiver: Mark Bradley, Bobby Engram, Quinten Lawrence
Quarterback: Matt Cassel, Brodie Croyle, Tyler Thigpen, Matt Gutierrez
Fullback: Mike Cox
Running Back: Larry Johnson, Jackie Battle, Jamaal Charles, Dantrell Savage
Left Defensive End: Tyson Jackson, Wallace Gilberry
Gilberry moved over from the right side following the departure of Alfonso Boone.
Nose Tackle: Tank Tyler, Ron Edwards
Tank Tyler takes the No. 1 spot. They have rotated throughout camp.
Right Defensive End: Glenn Dorsey, Wallace Gilberry, Alex Magee
Left Outside Linebacker: Mike Vrabel, Andy Studebaker
Left Inside Linebacker: Demorrio Williams, Monty Beisel, Derrick Johnson
Right Inside Linebacker: Corey Mays, Jovan Belcher
Right Outside Linebacker: Tamba Hali, Turk McBride, Pierre Walters
Left Cornerback: Brandon Flowers, Donald Washington, Maurice Leggett
Washington moves ahead of Leggett, which is more appropriate considering Washington played well last week and Leggett is a nickelback.
Right Cornerback: Brandon Carr, Ricardo Colclough
Strong Safety: Mike Brown, DaJuan Morgan
Free Safety: Jon McGraw, Jarrad Page
SPECIAL TEAMS (No changes)
Punter: Dustin Colquitt
Kicker: Ryan Succop
Kickoffs: Ryan Succop
Holder: Dustin Colquitt, Tyler Thigpen
Punt Returner: Dantrell Savage, Quinten Lawrence, Maurice Leggett
Kick Returner: Jamaal Charles, Dantrell Savage, Quinten Lawrence
