Chiefs C Ben Gottschalk cleared waivers and became a free agent.

Gottschalk was battling for the starting job at center for the Chiefs but was beat out by both Rodney Hudson and Eric Kush and has since cleared waiver and is now a free agent. Even if he signs with a new team before the start of the regular season, there is little chance he gains a starting job at any point in 2014.

Nico Johnson is out with a quadriceps injury and won't return.

Johnson isn't expected to make the Chiefs' 53-man roster, but could find himself on the practice squad if his injury doesn't cause him to miss much time.

Chiefs WR A.J. Jenkins is out for the rest of the game with a concussion.

A.J. Jenkins has been a disappointment since getting drafted in the first round of the NFL draft by the 49ers in 2012. He is fighting with a lot of young hungry wide receivers in Kansas City for a spot on the 53-man.

Joe McKnight is battling for the third running back spot on the Chiefs with Cyrus Gray.

It's been quite the summer for McKnight who only signed a reserve/futures contract with the Chiefs. He's already surpassed both Charcandrick West and De'Anthony Thomas on the depth chart and he's impressed the coaches enough that he is now considered in a dead heat with Gray for the No. 3 spot. Both should see significant time during the Chiefs' final preseason game and a decision will be made over the weekend.

Chiefs signed G Mike McGlynn.

The CHiefs were rumored to be looking at McGlynn, who played 14 of 16 games for the Colts last year. He could still compete for a starting job even this late in the preseason.

Chiefs ILB Joe Mays (wrist surgery) is expected to miss at least six weeks. 

Mays was looking at being linebvacker depth and a possible candidate to be rotated in. He'll now be lost until at least Week 5 of the regular season, so if you were looking at him for IDP purposes, you shouldn't be anymore.

Tamba Hali (knee) was not at practice Tuesday and will not make trip to Green Bay.

Hali is dealing with swelling in his knee so the Chiefs aren't going to risk anything in a meaningless game. How this affects his status for Week 1 is not yet known, so keep him listed as day-to-day.

The Chiefs waived cornerbacks Kevin Rutland and Damond Smith and offensive tackle Ryan McKee to get down to Tuesday's 75-man roster limit.

These names shouldn't be much of a surprise here. Just the usual bubble guys.
