Kansas City Chiefs cut one, sign one before training camp starts

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

RB Keshawn Hill's stay with the Kansas City Chiefs didn't last very long. After getting signed this offseason, Hill has been cut by the Chiefs, who have replaced him with DT Hebron Fangupo.

Hill was reportedly injured during practice this week. The Chiefs didn't have any healthy backs for practice so before they signed rookie RB LaVance Taylor, they had the backup quarterbacks lining up at running back.

Fangupo's name could be familiar if you watch the Chiefs roster closely because he spent time on the Chiefs practice squad last year. Since 2012 he has spent time with the Houston Texans, Seattle Seahawks, Pittsburgh Steelers and Washington. So somebody thinks he has some talent if he keeps getting signed. His signing comes after it was announced that another defensive lineman, Dontari Poewould be missing some time.
