Routt had only just signed with the Chiefs this offseason after being cut by the Oakland Raiders. Smith previously played for the Chiefs in 2010, where he gained notoriety for being accused of grabbing an opponents' private parts in consecutive weeks.

Crennel changed things up on the coaching side as well. Teicher reports that Gary Gibbs, previously the Chiefs' linebackers coach, will be promoted to defensive coordinator - a position that Crennel filled in addition to his head coaching responsibilities.

The Chiefs have endured a miserable season thus far. The team is 1-7 and has not led a game in regulation time for the entire season (their one win came in overtime against the New Orleans Saints).
