The Kansas City Chiefs released their preseason Week 2 depth chart which looks an awful lot like preseason Week 1 depth chart. The Chiefs didn’t make any changes ... well, they made one notable change. Patrick Mahomes is now the No. 2 quarterback ahead of Tyler Bray.
That’s notable, for sure. But we also knew that was happening at some point. Mahomes was going to pass Bray this preseason or after this season, it was just a question of when.
It’s hard to look at the Chiefs first preseason game and say this is who they are because Travis Kelce didn’t play. He’s one of the two most important players on offense for the Chiefs and he didn’t play. He did, however, return to practice Sunday. Maybe we see him on Saturday against the Bengals.
The Chiefs have Kareem Hunt listed on the third string but he’s really been more like the second string. Marcus Kemp is listed way down there at receiver but he caught a touchdown pass on Friday night. The Chiefs were without Bennie Logan and Roy Miller on Friday but Jarvis Jenkins stepped in and started at nose.
There are still a ton of bodies at inside linebacker. I’m not sure how that’s going to shake out.
