With roster cuts set for Tuesday afternoon, NFL teams are starting to pair down their roster a bit early. One of those teams is the Kansas City Chiefs who made some moves after Sunday afternoon's morning practice.
Those cut were QB Bill Stull, T/G Tyler Eastman, RB Kestahn Moore and TE Cody Slate.
There weren't any major surprises. Though Moore was mighty impressive in the early stages of training camp. But the Chiefs might be hoping he fails to land with another team so they can lock him down on their practice squad.
Stull singed a couple of weeks ago when back-up quarterback Brodie Croyle hurt his elbow. That injury appears to be healed. But Croyle didn't see any action against the Eagles but if healthy, will get some major time against the Packers on Thursday night in the Chiefs final exhibition tune-up.
Eastman had no chance to make the roster nor did Slate. In fact, I can't see the Chiefs, because of other needs, are going to keep more than two tight ends.
In other KC Chiefs News:
LB Cameron Sheffield - From all accounts he appears to be just fine after that scary helmet to helmet collision on Friday night. He was released from the hospital on Saturday and we're told that there were no complications from the hit. He's expected to rejoin his teammates on the practice field.
For more on Sheffield, check out Warpaint Illustrated.com Columnist Michael Ash's article on the Chiefs rookie linebacker from Troy University.
CB Maurice Leggett - He might be rejoining his teammates this week in practice. He appears to be 100% recovered from the concussion he suffered in the Chiefs second preseason game at Atlanta.
S Jarrad Page - We're hearing rumblings that he could be heading out of Kansas City this week. For more on that hot topic, check out our Smoke Signals Message Board for more details.
