Cuts, waiver claims, practice squad news, updates

  • 2:29 p.m. Arrowhead Time: The Chiefs have announced the remaining four players on their practice squad.
  • 5:11 p.m. Arrowhead Time: Chiefs make aforementioned six practice squad members official. They also announced they have signed back offensive lineman Jeff Allen and released linebacker Jeremiah Attaochu. Chad Henne has been moved to injured reserve.
  • 2:47 p.m. Arrowhead Time: Former Chiefs OL Kahlil McKenzie has been signed to the Seattle Seahawks practice squad, per Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR. These were Chiefs GM Brett Veach’s comments on McKenzie during Saturday afternoon’s conference call: “He made really good improvements and strides from year one to year two. I think he’s still on the upswing. You never know how these things work, maybe a team claims him or there’s practice squad. There’s still time to develop these guys... Nothing but positive on Kahlil, he’s done a great job and continues to get better. We will see how this goes and maybe he will be back here.”
  • 1 p.m. Arrowhead Time: WR Jody Fortson is being signed to the Chiefs’ practice squad, per Matt Derrick of Chiefs Digest.
