Chiefs practice squad: Live tracker
The Kansas City Chiefs are filling out their 10-man practice squad. We will have all the news and updates right here!
After naming the 53-man roster (54 if you count Eric Berry, who currently eats up a roster exemption), the Chiefs are still working on figuring out who will actually be on the payroll come Sept. 11.
Kansas City general manager John Dorsey has to put the practice squad together on Sunday, having everything squared away by this afternoon. Here are a couple things you have to know … First, any practice squad player had to have cleared waivers on Saturday night and Sunday morning. If a team claimed a player, the Chiefs can’t try to pluck the guy away by offering a bigger contract or anything like that.
Also, Kansas City can call any of these players up to the active roster at any time. That said, the Chiefs would have to demote a player on the active roster to make room. It always has to be at 53 players.
Alright, let’s follow the news in real time!
I’m hearing #Chiefs ILB Terrance Smith has been added to the practice squad.

Smith looked like a player in the preseason, and clearly Dorsey wants to develop this young talent.
Frankie Hammond to Chiefs' practice squad, per a source

Hammond is capable on special teams and earned a spot on the practice squad. He’ll likely make an appearance for Kansas City at some point this season.
We will continue updating the list as more info comes in.
