Chiefs announce several roster moves on Saturday
The Kansas City Chiefs have announced a series of roster moves ahead of their Week 16 game against the Atlanta Falcons.
First off, middle linebacker Anthony Hitchens' start was not activated from the reserve / COVID-19 list. Instead, the team used the COVID-19 surrogate designation to increase WR Gehrig Dieter, signaling that Hitchens won't be back this week. This means we will likely see some sort of duo of Ben Niemann and Willie Gay Jr. starting the Chiefs in the linebacker position. In their base staff, they will likely use Darius Harris as well. Remember, Damien Wilson was disfellowshipped this week and Dorian O’Daniel is in an injured reserve.
To resolve the depth problems at the linebacker point, the team activated an undrawn free agent in Omari Cobb using a standard height. At 6-4 and 223 pounds, Cobb can play both outer linebacker spots. This is the first time Cobb has been activated for the 53-man roster since joining the training team in 2020.
For the second year in a row, the team has decided to add CB DeAndre Baker to the 53-man roster. Last week, he played on special teams in just five snaps and got no chance to play defense. Look for Baker, maybe for a peek at the defense if the Chiefs jump out ahead of the Falcons. This is the last time it can be activated at the standard height. So the chiefs have to make them count and evaluate a little.
