The Chiefs have made the needed moves to get down to 75 players ahead of Tuesday afternoon’s deadline.
Kansas City dropped 11 men from the roster on Monday and got the rest of the way there by dropping three more on Tuesday morning.
Tackle Ryan McKee, cornerback Kevin Rutland and cornerback Damond Smith have been waived and all three have practice squad eligibility should they pass through waivers unclaimed. The Chiefs and the other 31 teams in the league can start filling their 10 practice squad slots one final cuts have been made on Saturday.
In that round of final cuts, the Chiefs will have room for two more players than they originally imagined because of the suspensions handed down to wide receiver Dwayne Bowe and tackle Donald Stephenson.
