Chiefs release updated depth chart for Week 7

·2 min read

The Kansas City Chiefs have released their updated depth chart ahead of their Week 7 game against the Tennessee Titans.

The Chiefs haven’t made any changes to the 53-man roster so far this week. That means players like Jody Fortson will still be reflected on the depth chart, even though we know he suffered a season-ending Achilles injury. That said, there are a few changes to the depth chart after the team made some roster changes last week. That includes one change that Chiefs fans have long been waiting for.

Remember that these depth charts are considered to be “unofficial.” They are assembled by the team’s PR staff, instead of the coaching staff, which means you should take them with a grain of salt. They don’t always reflect the reality of the team’s roster depth come game day.

Let’s take a look at the most recent depth chart out of Kansas City and see what we can learn about the 2021 Chiefs:

  • Mike Remmers is now listed as the starting right tackle on the depth chart after making his 2021 debut in Week 6.

  • Lucas Niang is now the backup right tackle with Andrew Wylie moving to second-string left tackle.

  • As we mentioned earlier, Chiefs TE Jody Fortson hasn’t been placed on injured reserve yet. Because of that, he is still reflected on the depth chart.

  • Juan Thornhill has finally replaced Daniel Sorensen as the starting free safety in Kansas City. It only took five weeks of frustration and complaining to make it happen.
