The Kansas City Chiefs have a lot to figure out before cutting the roster down to 53 men on Friday.

Chiefs linebacker Tamba Hali is set to serve a one-game suspension for the team's regular season opener, which makes the need greater for linebackers on the available roster spots. Edgar Jones, Andy Studebaker, Cameron Sheffield, Gabe Miller are all in the mix for Kansas City, while Jones appears to be a lock to make the roster.

Head coach Romeo Crennel talked about the upcoming cuts to the roster being the biggest distraction this week as the Chiefs try to finish off the preseason strong.

"One of the distractions that the players have to deal with this week - the realization that the cuts occurred (Sunday) and then the realization that there will be more cuts on Friday," head coach Romeo Crennel said. "So that's one of the distractions that we have to deal with but that's part of it, so we have to do that."
