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.

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.
