Chiefs Finish Their Roster Cuts Early

The Kansas City Chiefs have released 14 players to get down to the 75-man roster limit ahead of Monday's deadline. The Chiefs' cuts didn't include any major surprises and they will need to get down to 53 players by Friday night.

Here are all 14 players cut by the Chiefs:

FB Shane Bannon
TE Tim Biere
LB Caleb Campbell
OL Justin Cheadle
DB Dominique Ellis
DB Jean Fanor
LB Dexter Heyman
OL Cam Holland
WR Jeremy Horne
DE Ethan Johnson
WR Brandon Kinnie
WR Zeke Markshausen
K Matt Szymanski
WR Aaron Weaver

Not all of these players will be gone forever. Some of them will be on the Chiefs practice squad when they begin to create it after next week.

Horne was the most experienced player on the list. Campbell and Bannon were both considered possibilities for the active roster. Bannon was listed No. 1 on the Chiefs most recent depth chart at fullback.

The next round of cuts to 53 players comes on Friday night.
