According to Tuesday's official NFL transaction report, the Kansas City Chiefs made a few transactions to know.
The team placed offensive lineman Kyle Long on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list. Long suffered a lower-leg injury back in mid-June, so this move was to be expected. Long joins safety Armani Watts on the PUP list for training camp.

As a reminder, players can be moved off the PUP list to the active roster at any time before the start of the regular season. If Long were to remain on the PUP list after the 53-man roster cut on August 31, he would have to miss the first six weeks of the season.
The Chiefs also placed tight end Nick Keizer on the non-football injury list, meaning he suffered an injury away from the team. It is worth noting that both Long and Keizer still count against the team’s 90-man roster, which now includes exactly 90 players.
A player who doesn’t count against their 90-man roster is wide receiver Chris Finke, who was waived with an injury designation on Monday. Finke slipped through waivers and was thus cleared to be added to the Chiefs’ injured reserve list.
The Chiefs are set for their first full-team workout on Wednesday morning.
