According to a report from Matt Derrick at Chiefs Digest, the Chiefs waived offensive lineman Ike Boettger on Wednesday to make room on the roster for tight end Demetrius Harris, who has now completed his one-game NFL suspension.
Chiefs have waived OL Ike Boettger to clear space for TE Demetrius Harris, His roster exemption ended today. That brings the Chiefs to nine offensive lineman and three tight ends.— Matt Derrick (@mattderrick) September 11, 2018
Boettger, 23, played at Iowa, and was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Bufflao Bills. He didn’t make their final roster, and the Chiefs claimed him on waivers on September 2.
Harris — now in his fifth year with the Chiefs — had been suspended by the NFL for the first game of the 2018 season for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. While serving his suspension, the Chiefs were allowed a roster exemption, which allowed the team to take a closer look at Boettger.
