The Kansas City Chiefs released the third version of their depth chart earlier Sunday as they get prepared to take on the Chicago Bears this Saturday at Noon Arrowhead Time.

As a reminder, the chart is considered “unofficial,” though it is reviewed by the team before release (here was the previous version of the chart).

  • Parker Ehinger is now listed as second-team right tackle; he was second-team left tackle.
  • Bentley Spain is now listed as third-team left tackle; he was third-team right tackle.
  • The above changes could be an indication the team is working various linemen at different positions.
  • RB Ray Lawry debuts on the depth chart as the team’s seventh running back.

Defensive changes

  • Ben Niemann is now the third-team right inside linebacker, jumping Raymond Davison.
