The Kansas City Chiefs have placed linebackers Tamba Hali and Dadi Nicolas on the physically unable to perform list and released veteran running back C.J. Spiller.
Kansas City also traded offensive lineman Isaiah Battle to Seattle on Saturday for a conditional 2018 draft pick and placed running back Spencer Ware and cornerback Ashton Lampkin on injured reserve.
a five-time Pro Bowl selection,Hali, is dealing with balky knees. Nicolas is coming off a knee injury last season.
Spiller was the biggest surprise among 30 players who were cut. Not only did he appear rejuvenated after a long history of injuries, his release left the Chiefs with rookie Kareem Hunt and Charcandrick West as the only running backs on their roster.
Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters has fallen into controversy over the past two weeks after his decision to sit during the national anthem in protest of racial inequality in the United States.

Peters has yet to speak to the media about his decision to sit, but coach Andy Reid addressed it at length during Monday’s press conference.
“I’ve had an opportunity to talk to (Peters), raise these kids. He’s got his own football team there. He takes a tremendous amount of pride in that. He has a carnival. People don’t understand that. The police work the carnival, helping raise,” Reid said. “He loves kids. He spends a lot of time in Oakland,Authentic Mitchell Schwartz Jersey, in a rough area, their families come to it. These are the things that I see behind the scenes.
“Everybody has their own beliefs,Authentic Albert Wilson Jersey, right? And how they’re going to show whatever they’re going to show. That’s the great part about this country. People take it different ways. I get it. I completely get it.
“As a head coach, I see more than what other people see. Right or wrong,Authentic Dee Ford Jersey, we’re given the opportunity to express ourselves. We all are. We all don’t agree. But when we come together, we come together as the Chiefs. As a football team.
“That’s not a distraction for our football team. We roll. So I’m going to leave it at that. I don’t want to get into a debate over it. That’s a debate you’re not going to win either way.”
Despite saying he was done with the topic, local Kansas City media continued to press Reid about Peters’ decision and his lack of media appearances.
“His big picture is he’s helping raise these kids and he wants to raise them in a better world,Authentic Laurent Duvernay Tardif Jersey,” Reid said. “That was my point. And I’m sure that’s probably part of this. Whether he chooses to speak or not speak, that’s his choice.”
Chiefs snap analysis: How Allen Bailey is assuming Dontari Poe’s mantel, and more
Here are some observations based on the snap-count data from the Kansas City Chiefs’ 27-20 win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium. The snap data is provided by the NFL; the statistical data is provided by Pro Football Focus. The analysis? That’s yours truly.
Smith played every snap,Authentic Ron Parker Jersey, he absorbed a massive blow that caused him to get up slowly. The Chiefs even called a timeout to let him collect himself. After that, though there was a moment where it didn’t appear that would be the case. In the second quarter, Smith was sacked three times before the end of the half and seemed skittish in the pocket. He bounced back in the second half with a nice performance,Authentic Allen Bailey Jersey, however, showing toughness.
Smith did a nice job getting rid of the ball quickly, completing 18 of 22 passes with one touchdown on passes thrown in 2.5 seconds or less.
Hill saw his workload increase from 74 percent a week ago. You can attribute that to the cramps that set in late in the second half against New England, which affected his workload in that game.
The Chiefs continue to use a healthy amount of three-tight end sets, with Wilson as the No. 3 receiver.
Both Thomas and Robinson saw their workload percentages fall slightly compared to last week.
Thomas still logged 73 percent of the special teams snaps, while Robinson only logged 17 percent. That’s a pretty steep drop-off for Robinson from a year ago, when he played 62 percent of the snaps on special teams. Might be something to keep an eye on in the future.
I find it interesting that Chesson was inactive after appearing on 15 special teams snaps a week ago.
Kelce might be frustrating coach Andy Reid with his on-field behavior, but he’s been a rock for the Chiefs’ offense through two weeks, appearing on all but three plays against the Patriots and Eagles. I can’t remember a two-game stretch where Kelce has played so much. It might exist; I’m just saying I don’t remember it.
Kelce has also proven to be a reliable target this season, catching all 13 of the catchable passes that have been thrown his way in 2017. On Sunday, he caught eight of nine targets for 103 yards and a touchdown.
Harris played 67 percent of the special teams snaps.
The Chiefs have shifted away from so many multiple-tight end sets – at least somewhat –through two weeks. Last year at this point, the Chiefs’ tight ends played 74 percent of the snaps. This year, they’ve played 66 percent of the snaps.
Morse missed seven snaps due to a foot sprain that was not as serious as it could have been. I expect them to be fine with Fulton at center for the next few weeks; the problem could come if someone else gets hurt and Ehinger, who has been working his way back from a torn ACL, isn’t quite ready to go. Erving and Devey both have to prove themselves here.
Duvernay-Tardif appears to be off to a solid start in pass protection after signing his massive extension this offseason. In 73 pass-block snaps, he’s yet to yield a pressure or a sack. Only seven guards in the NFL can say that right now.
Schwartz, according to PFF, yielded a sack and a hurry on Sunday. For the season,Womens Mitchell Schwartz Jersey, he’s yielded four hurries.
The Chiefs’ defensive front was nasty this week, sacking Philadelphia quarterback Carson Wentz six times. Wentz only completed 2 of 10 passes for 10 yards under pressure.
It looks like Bailey is the odds-on favorite to win the Dontari Poe Award,Womens Albert Wilson Jersey, which is in line with Poe’s workload, which I just made up but is handed to the Chiefs defensive lineman who plays an absurd amount of snaps. Bailey has earned more than 80 percent of the snaps the first two weeks, pre-back issues. Bailey,Womens Dee Ford Jersey, by the way, has looked terrific this season and is as responsible as anyone for the amount of pressure they’ve generated up front.
Jones had a monster game,Womens Laurent Duvernay Tardif Jersey, recording three sacks and an interception, and the fact he did that on only 44 percent of the snaps is insane.
Jones, Logan,Womens Ron Parker Jersey, Miller and Nunez-Roches all saw their snaps decrease slightly this week.
Houston, was outstanding, the KC Star player of the game,Womens Allen Bailey Jersey, recording five tackles, a sack and a deflection. He also had five run stops as he once again put his all-around chops on display. As a pass rusher, his nine pressures this season is tied for the fourth-most among all outside linebackers in the NFL.
It appears Zombo got all of his defensive snaps when either Houston or Ford weren’t in the game. He continues to be a special teams stalwart, recording a team-high 83 percent of the snaps there. So did Pierre-Louis.
Smith also carried a special teams workload, playing 63 percent of the snaps there.
