Kansas City Chiefs release 11 players, Sander Commings put on IR

While training camp is an exciting time, there is also a less exciting reality that comes with it. Not everyone in training camp is going to make the final roster and some players will be cut and likely have to wait until next season to get another shot.

The league requires teams to cut down to 75 players by Tuesday, August 26th, at 4 p.m. ET. On the following Saturday, they have to drop that number to 53, the size a roster can be heading into a season.
