On Monday, Kansas City released former Mizzou wide receiver Jerrell Jackson. He was the most well-name known on a list that included CFL import and former University of North Dakota wide receiver Weston Dressler, and two other wideouts in Deon Anthony and Darryl Surgent.

The defensive line lost two members, with tackle Jairus Campbell and tackle Jermelle Cudjo sent packing. Also on the cut line were guard Otis Hudson, cornerbacks Brandon Jones and Vernon Kearney, safety Jerron McMillian, and former Emporia State standout, tight end Adam Schiltz.

Second-year safety Sanders Commings, from the University of Georgia, was placed on injured reserve.

Needing to release three more players on Tuesday, Kansas City cut Southern Mississippi offensive tackle Ryan McKee, former Mizzou cornerback Kevin Rutland, and South Alabama cornerback Damond Smith.

The Chiefs will need to be down to the NFL's final roster cut-down number of 53 by 3 o'clock on Saturday afternoon. Kansas City finishes the preseason on Thursday night, playing the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Head Coach Andy Reid has announced that former Missouri Tiger quarterback Chase Daniel will get the start for the Chiefs, with Aaron Murray and Tyler Bray both receiving time by the second half. Expected opening day starter Alex Smith will sit out the game to protect from potential injury.
