Chiefs cut seven

The Chiefs removed seven players from their roster on Monday morning, dropping their roster to 82 players. They will have to release two more by 3 p.m. CDT on Tuesday to reach the NFL’s 80-man limit.

There were no surprises among the seven early cuts:

LB Eric Bakhtiari most likely was waived injured, which means he may show back up on the roster with a spot on the injured-reserve list. He suffered a concussion in practices after the Tampa Bay game and has not played or practiced since then. Until that injury, he’d been making a push to stay on the roster, showing some good skills as a pass rusher off the edge.

FB Tervaris Johnson started training camp on the PUP list as he continued to rehab a knee injury he suffered in last year’s training camp. He never really got a chance to take part in the offense after he was finally cleared to practice.

DBs Mario Russell and DB Javes Lewis were rookie free agents that signed late in the start up to training camp and saw minimal playing time.

WRs Chris Manno, Chandler Williams and Josue Paul were not able to crack the competition at receiver. Williams spent last year on the Chiefs injured-reserve list, while Manno had previous chances in the NFL and Paul was a rookie free agent.
