We have a bit of a surprise from the Kansas City Chiefs who have reportedly released RB Darrin Reaves. This according to Aaron Wilson, who says Reaves will hit the practice squad once he clears waivers.
Chiefs cut running back Darrin Reaves, expected to join practice squad after strong preseason— Aaron Wilson (@AaronWilson_NFL) September 3, 2016
He was on most of our 53-man roster projections after a good preseason. The Chiefs top three backs are set - Jamaal Charles, Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West. Reaves would’ve been that fourth guy.
Will the Chiefs keep Knile Davis? Many of guessed he would be cut but with Jamaal banged up and uncertain for Week 1 I would be surprised if the Chiefs kept just three running backs.
Stay tuned. The Chiefs will make their cuts by 3 p.m. (Arrowhead Time).
