Chiefs Roster Cuts: Kansas City Waives 19 Players

The Kansas City Chiefs had to cut down their roster size to 53 players, and to get to that number they placed defensive back De'Quan Menzie and quarterback Alex Tanney on the injured reserve list that ends their season. Plus, they had to outright waive 19 players.

Players waived:

Brandon Bair DL
• Mikail Baker DB
Josh Bellamy WR
Rob Bruggeman OL
Patrick DiMarco FB
Chandler Fenner DB
Darryl Harris G
Junior Hemingway WR
Jerome Long DL
Gabe Miller LB
David Mims OL
• Jamar Newsome WR
Terrance Parks DB
Lucas Patterson OL
• Rich Ranglin OL
• Neiko Thorpe DB
Donald Washington S
Amon Gordon DL
Leon Williams LB

Injured reserve:

• De'Quan Menzie DB
• Alex Tanney QB

The Chiefs current 53-man roster has no fullbacks and five running backs. Jerome Long and Junior Hemingway, both 2012 draft picks, got cut, and Tysyn Hartman and Nate Eachus, who were undrafted rookies, made the team.

Even though the 53-man roster was named, every team will tinker with the bottom of their roster to try and improve their team.
