With the preseason in the books, the Kansas City Chiefs have begun their 2018 NFL roster cuts. The Chiefs have until 3:00 p.m. Arrowhead Time on Saturday, September 1, to get their roster down to the regular season 53-player limit.

Stay tuned to this thread for live updates on Chiefs cuts, trades, rumors and more. The Chiefs might not officially confirm their roster moves until Saturday afternoon, but some could leak out before then.




  • 6:00 p.m. Arrowhead Time - S Jordan Lucas acquired from Dolphins via trade.
  • 4:13 p.m. Arrowhead Time - LB Otha Peters has been waived by the Chiefs.
  • 12:54 p.m. Arrowhead Time - Andy Reid says new cornerback Charvarius Ward won’t start right away.
  • 12:30 p.m. Arrowhead Time - Andy Reid comments on CB David Amerson: “We’ll just see how everything goes down. I don't have anything other than that really to say. We’ll just see how everything rolls here in the next couple of days, and go with it. I thought worked hard last week and he did some decent things, so he’s trying to work on the things that he needs to play in this defense.”
  • 12:30 p.m. Arrowhead Time - Andy Reid comments on ILB Terrance Smith, who didn’t play Thursday night: “Terrance, we kind of know what Terrance is. He had a lot of snaps up to that point and he had been battling a little bit of a groin and so I just backed him off, and I’ve got pretty good tape on him and feel for him of what he is. I thought it was a good time for him to heal up here, just a little bit. He hadn’t missed anything, but he’s battling a little bit of a groin.”
  • 11:33 a.m. Arrowhead Time - Chiefs officially announce the acquisition of CB Charvarious Ward from the Dallas Cowboys in exchange for OL Parker Ehinger. Consider Ward a lock to make the 53-man roster.
  • 10:15 a.m. Arrowhead Time - We shared Thursday night’s offensive snap counts and defensive snap counts on Twitter. These are worth paying attention to, as bubble players will be expected to play a bit on special teams if they do make the club.
  • 8:25 a.m. Arrowhead Time - The Chiefs’ current roster stands at 90 players, meaning there are 37 moves to be made.
  • 7:18 a.m. Arrowhead Time - As we wait for our first roster cut, check out our final 53-man roster projection. It includes our recommendation for the Chiefs to part ways with struggling cornerback David Amerson.
