Chiefs 53-Man Roster Has No Fullbacks, 5 Running Backs


The Kansas City Chiefs made their roster cuts removing 19 players from the roster and adding two more to IR. I've got a couple of the most recent depth chart with all the day's transactions included. 17 players waived, two veterans cut and two more to IR.

Depth chart notes:

  • The Chiefs have 54 players on the roster -- Tamba Hali's Week 1 suspension doesn't count against the roster. (H/T Teicher for pointing that out.)
  • All three nose tackles made it -- Anthony Toribio, Dontari Poe and Jerrell Powe.
  • The Chiefs have no fullback. But they have five running backs.
  • Two 2012 draft picks were cut -- Jerome Long and Junior Hemingway.
  • Two undrafted free agents made it -- Tysyn Hartman and Nate Eachus. Alex Tanney was placed on IR.

Here's the whole thing, keeping in mind Romeo Crennel could make changes before Week 1:
