The Kansas City Chiefs have announced their practice squad list. Take a look at the names here.

The Chiefs have announced their practice squad after cutting their active roster down to 53 players on Friday. Here are the names on Kansas City's practice squad: Josh Bellamy, Patrick Dimarco, Junior Hemingway, Jerome Long, David Mims, Jamar Newsome, Luke Patterson, Neiko Thorpe.

Arrowhead Pride had already reported DiMarco was coming back, and they also predicted Hemingway, Long, Bellamy, Mims and Patterson being on the practice squad. So kudos to those guys for going six out of eight there.

Here was Joel Thorman's reaction to the announcement:

That these players made it to the practice squad means they all cleared waivers -- in other words, every team in the league had an opportunity to claim them but didn't. Teams would have had to place those players on the active roster, though.
