Murray's return to practice indicates he should be available Saturday against the Chargers. He will serve as a depth option in Kansas City's secondary behind starting strong safety Daniel Sorensen.
Ellis -- who was released by the Saints on Monday -- will provide some additional depth at the tight end position that sports only a couple of players guaranteed a spot in Travis Kelce and Demetrius Harris. Ellis signed a future/reserve deal with the Saints prior to last season after appearing in six games for the Jaguars as a rookie in 2016 both on offense and special teams and will attempt to reprise that role with the Chiefs.
Selected by Buffalo in the second round of the 2016 draft, Ragland suffered a torn ACL in training camp as a rookie, and then was traded to Kansas City last preseason. He started 10 of his 12 games with the Chiefs in 2017, but logged only 322 snaps and 44 tackles while working in a two-down role. Listed at 6-foot-1 and 252 pounds, Ragland is unlikely to ever be anything more than adequate in coverage, though it isn't totally out of the question that he competes for a three-down role in training camp. The Chiefs did sign Anthony Hitchens to replace Derrick Johnson, ensuring that they have at least one inside linebacker capable of handling snaps on passing downs.
Hill missed practice last Thursday after twisting his ankle, but he appears to be fine after giving it a couple days of rest. The issue shouldn't prevent him from participating in practices moving forward as Hill looks to build his rapport with second-year quarterback and first-year starter Patrick Mahomes.
Jenkins slotted in as a reserve defensive end for the Chiefs in 2017, playing mainly when the regulars needed a breather. He should serve Kansas City in a similar role during 2018 with Allen Bailey, Chris Jones (knee) and Rakeem Nunez-Roches (ankle) all returning.
Baxter underwent surgery after he injured his wrist in Thursday's practice, and the team didn't release a timetable for his recovery. It's appears likely that Baxter was given a long timetable by team doctors, and that's what ultimately led to him being waived.
Holmes, who was released by the Browns in December, has 15 games under his belt during his first two professional seasons, but he has been relegated primarily to special-teams duty. He will attempt to secure a similar role with the Chiefs in 2018.
In cutting Parker, who the club re-signed on a five-year, $25 million contract in March 2015, the Chiefs will free up roughly $5 million in cap space. The 30-year-old Parker is coming off a rough 2017 campaign in which he struggled in both run support and pass defense, grading out as Pro Football Focus' 86th-ranked safety among 89 qualifiers. Teams should still be interested in Parker's services as a depth defensive back or short-term starting option, but he'll unlikely to receive much guaranteed money in his next contract.
Thomas was reportedly offered $1.5 million to sign with another squad, but he declined the offer in favor of returning to Kansas City. The speedy wideout contributed mostly on special teams for the Chiefs last season, but he did rack up 14 catches for 143 yards and two touchdowns as well. He should remain a contributor as a returner and depth wideout for the club in 2018.
In the aftermath of the Jay Ajayi trade to Philly last year, Williams and Kenyan Drake entered into a timeshare in Miami. Williams was productive in four subsequent starts, averaging 63.5 yards from scrimmage per game and scoring one touchdown. That said, he suffered a dislocated left shoulder in the latter contest, a Week 12 loss in New England, and proceeded to miss the rest of the season. His absence allowed Drake to gain a stranglehold on the Dolphins' top RB gig, so Williams subsequently explored the market as an unrestricted free agent this month. Upon landing with the Chiefs, Williams' rehab will continue as he aims for participation at the start of training camp, when he'll compete with Spencer Ware (knee), Charcandrick West and Akeem Hunt (ankle) for reps behind clear-cut starter Kareem Hunt.
Although he originally made the Chiefs' 53-man roster, Devey was let go be the team Thursday. However, they have opted to re-sign him, and he once again figures to provide depth on the offensive line going forward.
Amerson will end the season with nine consecutive absences due to the foot injury, making it surprising the Raiders never placed him on injured reserve. As has been the case throughout the second half of the campaign, Sean Smith, TJ Carrie and Dexter McDonald are expected to serve as the teams primary cornerbacks in the season finale.
Kpassagnon made the most of his expanded role Sunday by bringing down the quarterback on two different occasions. He remains bound to the Chiefs through the 2020 season, but he is unlikely to see a consistent role in the defense barring injuries at outside linebacker. However, Kpassagnon should continue to provide depth on the outside and assist on special teams.
Erving, a 2015 former first-round pick, struggled to mesh with the Cleveland line during his short tenure with the Browns. Given his struggles, the Browns understandably agreed to part ways with Erving once the Chiefs offered a 2018 fifth-round pick. The Florida State product reportedly lost his starting job to Shon Coleman after bouncing around to different positions. The Chiefs likely will aim to use Erving as a reserve lineman for the time being.
Butker thus finishes a spectacular 2017 campaign having made 38 of his 42 field-goal attempts on the year and all 28 of his extra-point tries. The rookie's contract remains intact through next season and his performance as a rookie will likely boost him up the kicker rankings heading into 2018.
Dorleant played four games with the Packers in 2016 but was released in April with a failed physical, and was also handed a one-week suspension by the NFL in October. A change of scenery could be just what was needed for the 25-year-old, who also finished the 2016 season on injured reserve with a torn ACL.
Given that the Chiefs said they were holding Hunt out of practice as a precaution, the injury likely isn't being viewed as anything serious during these optional workouts. Look for Kansas City to take every precaution necessary to ensure the tailback is 100 percent for the start of training camp.
Hamilton, a second year defensive tackle out of Louisiana-Lafayette, is set to make his NFL debut Sunday against the Chargers. The Eagles are thin on the line with Fletcher Cox and Destiny Vaeao already ruled out, so Hamilton figures to see some rotational reps depending on game flow.
McQuay was selected by the Chiefs in the sixth round of this year's draft but has spent the entire season on the practice squad. He'll provide Kansas City with depth in the secondary after Steven Terrell (undislosed) was placed on injured reserve Monday.
Eligwe fills a definite need for the Chiefs with veteran Derrick Johnson coming off his second Achilles injury. He started his career at Florida State and was a member of the Seminoles' national championship team, but finished his career at Georgia Southern after being dismissed from FSU. He was a standout player while at Georgia Southern and was able to resurrect his draft stock. He'll likely start out as a special teamer, but his tape from college shows that Eligwe has the potential to develop into a linebacker in the NFL.
With Spencer Ware (knee) expected back in the fold after missing the entire 2017 season, West appears to be the odd man out in the Kansas City backfield. Hunt proved more than capable of handling passing downs, an area that was West's domain for much of 2017, when he caught 27 passes and only took 18 carries. His salary is small enough that the Chiefs could justify retaining all three backs, but it also wouldn't come as a major surprise if West were to be released at some point this offseason. Reid seems to be hinting at Hunt taking on passing downs while ceding a portion of the early downs to Ware.
The workouts probably didn't include Sammy Watkins, who signed a three-year, $48 million contract in March when the free agency period first opened. Aside from swapping out Albert Wilson (Dolphins) for Watkins and Alex Smith for Mahomes, the Chiefs will retain the core of their productive 2017 offense, including Kareem Hunt, Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce and four of five starters on the line. It has the look of a formidable unit, with the potential to reach elite status if Mahomes displays enough pocket presence and accuracy to get the most out of his immense physical gifts. He looked the part of an NFL starter in Week 17 last season, completing 22 of 35 passes for 284 yards and an interception to lead the Chiefs' backups to a 27-24 win in Denver.
Terrell presumably suffered the injury in Sunday's victory over the Raiders. The team placed him on injured reserve Monday. He mainly provided depth in the secondary, so the defensive rotation is unlikely to be affected by his absence going forward.
With Rakeem Nunez-Roches' release becoming official Thursday in what was a move to create cap space, the Chiefs have elected to bring back Charles after releasing him just two days earlier. Charles has been a depth option on the defensive line throughout most of his NFL career, but he hasn't seen a snap since 2016 with Detroit, so his chances of ultimately making the Chiefs' final roster appear slim.
Ford's positive attitude during Tuesday's press conference essentially confirms the report from last month that the linebacker expected to be 100 percent healthy at the start of Kansas City's OTAs. With that, the expectation is that Ford will be fully ready for the start of the regular season as well as he looks to make a major comeback in a contract year.
Zombo matched his season-high total for tackles during the contest and notched his first full sack of the campaign. He had previously collected a half-sack in Week 5 against the Texans, giving him 1.5 for the season. The veteran also made just his third start of 2017 but could make another next week if Dee Ford (back) is unavailable again for the Chiefs.
Spiller found himself back in Kansas City earlier this week when Akeem Hunt (ankle) landed on injured reserve. That said, the backfield rides the coattails of Kareem Hunt, so Spiller's services won't be needed with strategic decisions made elsewhere on the game-day roster. Behind Kareem Hunt, Charcandrick West and Anthony Sherman will take any residual reps that don't go to the top running back.
Morse was placed on injured reserve in mid-December after injuring his foot in Week 2 and then re-injuring it in Week 13. The starting center still has a ways to go to get back to full strength. Look for more updates to come once organized team activities begin later in the offseason.
Looking to help boost his agility and speed off the edge, Jones dropped 25 pounds by simply adhering to a strict dietary plan. Per the report, Jones made it a point of emphasis to avoid pork-based foods and shifted his attention towards various vegetables. The 23-year-old started just seven games for the Chiefs last year, but if his figure holds, look for Jones to come into his own this season. With his participation during offseason workouts, Jones seems as if he's put the knee injury that plagued part of his 2017 season behind him.
Conley ruptured his Achilles in October after collecting 11 passes on 16 targets over five games (all starts) during the 2017 season. Drafted in the third round of 2015 as a project with ideal measurables for the position, Conley has turned the first three years of his career into just 71 receptions and one receiving touchdown. The addition of Sammy Watkins this offseason lessens his prospects further entering 2018, with Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce and Kareem Hunt already set to absorb a large number of targets.
Hunt injured his ankle in the 2017 season finale and was waived Tuesday after failing his physical. Barring an injury settlement, he's likely stuck on IR through the end of the 2018 season.
The suspension stems from Harris pleading guilty to a charge of possession of marijuana, and the backup tight end will now have to wait until Week 2 to make his 2018 debut. In Harris' absence, either Tim Wright or Jace Amaro will most likely operate as the No. 2 tight end behind Travis Kelce in the Chiefs' season opener.
Dealt to the Rams during training camp last year, Watkins operated as a low-volume deep threat in Los Angeles, catching 39 of 70 targets for 593 yards (15.3 yards per reception, 8.5 yards per target) and eight touchdowns in 15 games. His contract with the Chiefs suggests the team expects him to take on a larger workload, though it will be difficult to match his volume from Buffalo (7.4 targets per game) in an offense that also has to feed Kareem Hunt, Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill. Last season was a clear disappointment from a statistical standpoint, but Watkins did enjoy a mostly healthy campaign for the first time since his rookie year of 2014, and his downfield presence made things easier for fellow Rams wideouts Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp. Watkins celebrates his 25th birthday in June and still has time to grow alongside second-year quarterback Patrick Mahomes in Kansas City.
Sorensen broke out in 2016 with the Chiefs and followed that up with another spectacular display in 2017. Although his turnover numbers (three interceptions, two forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries) from last season were difficult and unrealistic to replicate, the fourth-year pro improved his tackling totals by a wide margin (up to 89 from 63). With Eric Berry (Achilles) set to return in 2018 and Ron Parker also back, it's unclear how prevalent Sorensen's role in the defense will be next season.
McGill was on the Browns' 53-man roster through Week 14, but was active for only three games, recording one tackle. The 25-year-old also had five sacks across 25 games in two seasons with the Colts.
Robinson didn't prove highly effective during the 2017 campaign, but there may be hope on the horizon for an expanded role. Quarterback Alex Smith presumably will be traded during the offseason to make way for Patrick Mahomes under center. Mahomes established a connection with Robinson during the preseason and likely has continued working with him and the second-string offense. That trust was displayed Sunday when the rookie quarterback targeted Robinson 10 times, albeit with both Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce on the sidelines. Still, things would look slightly brighter for Robinson heading into 2018 if Mahomes takes the reins.
Fuller was considered questionable to play with an undisclosed foot injury. He's coming off an eight-tackle, two-PBU performance against the Cardinals last week and could have another productive day against the Broncos' Trevor Siemian-lead offense.
One of several veterans cut loose by the Jets last offseason, Revis remained unsigned until early December, when the Chiefs inked him to a two-year deal. Revis appeared in five regular-season contests for the Chiefs and didn't provide the upgrade in the secondary the team was banking on, accruing 11 tackles, two pass breakups and no interceptions in those contests. With the 32-year-old on the downside of his career and guaranteed $8.8 million if he were to remain on the roster by March 19, Kansas City elected to release Revis in order to preserve some cap space. Revis' dismissal paves the way for Kendall Fuller, who the Chiefs acquired earlier this offseason in a trade that sent quarterback Alex Smith to Washington, to open the upcoming season in a starting role.
Berry was present for the beginning of offseason workouts and has now progressed to full participation in drills. It remains to be seen how effective he will be in his return from an injury that can have a major impact on explosiveness. Regardless, the veteran should serve as a quarterback in the secondary and has a history of recovering from major setbacks after battling his way back from Hodgkin's Lymphoma earlier in his career.
Though he has yet to make his NFL debut, Dieter has been a member of the Kansas City organization in some capacity since entering the league last spring after going undrafted out of Alabama. He signed with the team as a free agent in May after the draft, then spent the entire 2017 campaign on the practice squad upon being waived in training camp. Dieter will stick with the Chiefs throughout their offseason program and hope that the year of experience he's banked will increase his chances of winning a roster spot in 2018.
Duvernay-Tardif's absence will mark his fourth consecutive game missed. As a result, look for Zach Fulton to continue filling in at right guard.
Williams joins a crowded Kansas City backfield that is headed by Kareem Hunt and at least for now also includes Charcandrick West, Spencer Ware, Damien Williams and Akeem Hunt. The 26-year-old Kerwynn Williams logged a career-high 120 carries for 426 yards and TD to go along with 10 catches for 93 yards in 16 games for the Cardinals in 2017, but in his new context, Williams' path to touches is unclear in the absence of future roster trimming/fellow running back injuries.
Chesson played all 67 offensive snaps for the Chiefs on Sunday, but it didn't result in many looks or much of anything on the whole. He finishes the regular season having amassed just two catches for 18 yards in total and seems destined for a depth role again in 2018. However, De'Anthony Thomas' (lower leg) and Albert Wilson's contracts expire at the end of the season, potentially leaving some openings at wideout should the Chiefs elect to let them walk.
Two players from the secondary -- Nelson and Daniel Sorensen -- led the team in tackles during Sunday's tilt, which is generally not a good sign. After missing the early portions of 2017 due to core-muscle surgery, he's returned to the tune of 28 tackles through five games. He should continue to start opposite Marcus Peters and will face a tough matchup against the combo of Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree in Week 14.
Although Wright hasn't appeared in a game in two seasons, the former college wideout was a modestly effective receiver during his first three years in the league, when he caught a total of 13 touchdowns in 41 games for the Buccaneers, Patriots and Lions. However, he'll face heavy competition for a roster spot in Kansas City, as Demetrius Harris, Orson Charles and Jace Amaro will all jostle with him for slotting on the depth chart under the established Travis Kelce.
The Cardinals declined to match the Chiefs' offer on Williams, who was a restricted free agent in Arizona. Last season, he recorded a career-high 20 tackles and forced a fumble in 11 games (one start). Bennie Logan, the Chiefs' starting nose tackle last season, remains a free agent, so there is a strong chance Williams could immediately find himself in a starting role.
Kelce approaches the team's OTAs healthy now that he's well past the concussion he suffered back in January during the wild-card round of the NFL playoffs. The Chiefs' 2017 reception leader (83 on 123 targets) will be working with second-year QB Patrick Mahomes, now that Alex Smith has relocated to Washington. Mahomes' arm strength should allow for more downfield shots in the Kansas City passing game, with the team's wideout corps headed by Tyreek Hill and Sammy Watkins. The arrival of Watkins should draw some defensive attention away from both Hill and Kelce, which could perhaps make up for some of the target volume the newcomer is liable to soak up.
Charles removal from the roster comes on the heels of the team trading the Browns for Randall Telfer for some added depth at tight end. The 27-year-old caught just two passes for 53 yards and logged only 63 offenses snaps last season for the Chiefs behind Travis Kelce and Demetrius Harris and will now be free to catch on with another team.
Being able to practice in some capacity bodes well for Bailey's chances of playing Sunday against the Bills. However, with just 29 tackles (17 solo) and two sacks on the season, fantasy owners won't be lining up to start Bailey if he's healthy.
Ware reportedly participated in individual drills last week as well, which marks a step forward after he was unavailable altogether early in OTAs. If he can get his knee up to speed ahead of the regular season, Ware could be the favorite to spell Kareem Hunt on Sundays as the team looks to diversify Hunt's workload. However, the team also acquired a stable of backs -- Damien Williams (shoulder), Kerwynn Williams and Darrell Williams -- in free agency and the draft to supplement the returning members. Coach Andy Reid noted that he should be "all good" for training camp, a positive sign for the prospects of him contributing Week 1.
Henne made 53 starts for the Dolphins and Jaguars from 2009 to 2014, but he's attempted just two passes the last three years while sitting behind Blake Bortles in Jacksonville. The 32-year-old now heads to Kansas City, where he'll serve as backup and mentor for 2017 first-round pick Patrick Mahomes. The Jaguars are left with Bortles as the only quarterback on their roster.
Kemp will provide the Chiefs with some depth at the wide receiver position during the postseason following the news that De'Anthony Thomas (lower leg) has hit injured reserve. However, his role likely will be limited to special teams barring multiple injuries at the position.
Hali was originally deemed questionable due to a knee injury, but will play through the issue. Assuming he avoids any setbacks, he should take on his usual workload at outside linebacker in the contest.
Amaro spent training camp with the Titans, but ultimately failed to make the team during final roster cuts. He later landed on the Chiefs' practice squad, and will now have an opportunity to impress during the offseason.
Smith suffered a concussion in Sunday's loss to the Giants and was unable to clear protocol during this week of preparation. Smith is primarily used on special teams, so his absence won't have much of an impact on the team's defensive game plan.
A 2014 fourth-round pick, Hitchens had at least 67 tackles each of his four seasons in Dallas, including a career-best 84 in only 12 games last year. The size of the contract suggests he's ticketed for a three-down role, which typically wasn't the case during his time with the Cowboys. The 25-year-old will replace Derrick Johnson in the middle of the Kansas City defense.
The 2016 third-round draft pick failed to rehab from an ankle issue this preseason after missing all of last year with a significant knee injury. The 49ers could reclaim Redmond and place him on injured reserve if he passes through waivers Saturday.
Sherman has served as the Chiefs' lead blocker since 2013, recording only 47 catches and 19 carries despite playing every game. He took 14 carries in a meaningless Week 17 game against Denver, but it'll be back to a limited blocking role in 2018. Kareem Hunt probably appreciates the re-signing, even though the Chiefs rarely use a fullback outside of the red zone.
Although Houston's numbers have dipped over the last couple of seasons due to injury, he returned to form in 2017, nearing double-digit sacks over 15 games. Still just 28 and under contract for the next three seasons, the seventh-year pro will almost certainly resume his role with the team next season. If he manages to stay healthy again, it wouldn't be surprising if Houston reaches or tops 10 sacks for the first time since 2014.
Fisher woke up Monday unsure if he'd be ready, but following a good showing in warmups, he'll anchor the Kansas City offensive line to close out Week 4 action.
Braverman was signed to Kansas City's practice squad last week but the Chiefs signing him to a reserve/future contract ensures he'll remain under team control throughout the offseason. The 2016 seventh-rounder possesses a 4.47 40-yard dash time but his diminutive size (5-foot-10, 177 pounds) could hold him back.
