The Chiefs waived cornerback Chris Lammons on Monday, the team announced, leaving them with 52 players on their 53-player roster.

Running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire (high ankle sprain) and tight end Jody Fortson (elbow) returned to practice last week. The Chiefs could activate them from injured reserve this week, which would create the need for corresponding moves.

Edwards-Helaire hasn’t played since Week 11 and Fortson since Week 15.

Lammons has been a four-phase special teams player, with his 322 special teams snaps the most on the team this season. He made seven tackles in 16 regular-season games.

He played 23 special teams snaps Saturday against the Jaguars and made one tackle.

  1. Chiefs got burned on two Kickoff returns Saturday, Lammons is supposed to be a special teams ace, guessing his tape wasnt real good Saturday

  2. Its off subject but hear me out. Let Henne start this game. If he plays well and they win, save Mahomes for the SB. If they struggle, then put in Mahomes with the Bengal defense less fresh. Mahomes can play hero and win the game while the running game tries to keep the Bengals offense on the sidelines …

  3. He must have burned a bridge. NFL contracts are laden with incentive bonuses which in his case could have cost him. Any player misses a play here or there i.e. Dallas Kicker.

  4. I re-watched the game after learning Lammons got cut. It appeared to me that except for covering the last punt well, he gave a poor effort.

    Lammons ate dirt on the K.O. return the Butker made the tackle. His effort overall seemed poor. Perhaps the Chiefs believed it wisest to move on from him. His play was ineffective against Jax.
