The KC Chiefs practice squad is here.

Shortly after news of Alex Smith's contract extension broke, the Kansas City Chiefs announced the addition of eight players to their 2014 practice squad.

FB Jordan Campbell
C Ben Gottschalk
G Ricky Henry
LB Nico Johnson
DE Kona Schwenke
WR Darryl Surgent
RB Charcandrick West
WR Fred Williams

It was reported that the Chiefs were adding former Bears LB Jerry Franklin to the practice squad but he's not listed here.

A couple of notables in here are Ricky Henry and Nico Johnson. I could see Henry moving up on up to the 53-man roster at some point. They were on some folks 53-man roster predictions but did not make the Chiefs final 53-man roster. They'll stay with the team.

The Chiefs can have up to 10 players on their practice squad. These players can practice with the team but do not play in games. They can be called up to the active roster. They will make a minimum of $6,300 per week on the practice squad.
