Kansas City Chiefs first 53-man roster is right here

A look at the Chiefs first 53-man roster following roster cuts.

John Konstantaras

The Kansas City Chiefs made their roster cuts right at the deadline for teams to get down to 53 players. They released 17 players, put two on injured reserve, one on non-football injury list and two on the suspended / reserve list.

Find all the Chiefs roster moves here. Among the highlights are Tyler Bray going to IR and Cairo Santos making it over Ryan Succop.The Chiefs kept Joe Mays on the roster but he's a candidate for the IR-designated to return, which can't be assigned until Tuesday.

I took the players the Chiefs released and removed them from the Chiefs most recent depth chart. So this isn't official but this is an idea of what the Chiefs depth chart looks like. We should expect an updated one heading into next week.
