The Kansas City Chiefs travel to Green Bay for the final preseason showcase ahead of Friday's 53-man roster deadline.
The Kansas City Chiefs will wrap up their preseason this Thursday at Lambeau Field against the Green Bay Packers. The final preseason game is rarely played with a full compliment of starters as teams exercise extra caution in the final tune-up before the opener. The Chiefs have already said it's doubtful that they will not use cornerback Brandon Flowers, who will miss the entire preseason.
Kansas City must cut down to 75 players by Monday afternoon, and then cut down to the final 53 by Friday. That means more than 20 players will get there final chance to demonstrate their value on Thursday night in Wisconsin. One roster development that will be settled before Thursday is the back-up quarterback spot, which Romeo Crennel said will likely be announced on Monday. While it won't be the "dress rehearsal" action of the third preseason game, the final roster battles should make for some drama against the Packers.
