The highest profile name released by Kansas City was veteran kicker Ryan Succop, who was immediately inked by the Tennessee Titans. Succop lost the kicking battle to rookie Cairo Santos, a product of Tulane University. Veteran tackle J'Marcus Webb was also let go by Kansas City, along with former Missouri defensive tackle Dominique Hamilton.

The others released by the Chiefs are safeties Jonathon Amaya and Malcolm Bronson, fullback Jordan Campbell, wide receivers Mark Harrison and Fred Williams, guard Ricky Henry, linebackers Nico Johnson, Devan Walker, and Alonzo Highsmith, defensive tackles Kyle Love and Kona Schwenke, cornerbacks Justin Rogers and DeMarcus Van Dyke, and running back Charcandrick West.

Kansas City put quarterback Tyler Bray and wide receiver Kyle Williams on injured reserve, and place defensive end Mike Catapano on the non-football injury list. Suspended for the first game of the season will be wide receiver Dwayne Bowe and offensive lineman Donald Stephenson. Bowe will return for week #2, while Stephenson was suspended by the NFL for the first four games of the regular season.

Kansas City opens the season this Sunday (September 7th) at Arrowhead Stadium, hosting the Tennessee Titans at 12 noon.
