One Change To Chiefs Depth Chart For Jets Week

It would be cool if the Kansas City Chiefs released a depth chart that was actually accurate for the next week. I suppose you can't predict playing time for each player in the upcoming week but things like TE Jake O'Connell being listed as the No. 2 tight end when TE Anthony Becht has played ahead of him the past couple weeks isn't an accurate representation of the Chiefs true depth chart.

They don't have to keep anything accurate with their depth chart, which is actually called the "unofficial" depth chart -- it'd probably be a competitive disadvantage if they did so I get it -- but I'm just saying it would be cool to see how each player rises and falls throughout the season in the eyes of the coaching staff. They got it right with LB Justin Houston, labeling him as the top left outside linebacker, because LB Andy Studebaker played exactly one snap on Sunday against the Chicago Bears.

Then again, RB Thomas Jones has been listed ahead of RB Jamaal Charles since the day he got here.

OK, onto the actual changes this week. There was just one -- OT David Mims was added to the active roster in place of OT Jared Gaither, who was released (and apparently has some explosiveness left as evidenced by Monday night's performance). Mims is backing up OT Branden Albert at left tackle.

Oh, and QB Kyle Orton's status on this depth chart hasn't changed -- he's listed behind both QB Tyler Palko and QB Ricky Stanzi.

As usual, previous editions of the depth chart are linked below:

Preseason: Week 1, Week 2, Week 3 and Week 4.

Regular season: Week 1, Week 2, Week 3, Week 4, Week 5, Bye, Week 7, Week 8, Week 9, Week 10, Week 11, Week 12 and Week 13.
