KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Chiefs have released linebacker Dezman Moses to reach the 53-man roster limit.
Kansas City had a roster exemption for All-Pro safety Eric Berry, who didn't sign his franchise tender until late in training camp. It expired on Saturday, forcing them to release Moses to reach the NFL's limit ahead of Sunday's opener against San Diego.
Berry didn't play in any preseason games but is expected to start against the Chargers.
Moses has been active for 13 games for Kansas City each of the past two seasons, though most of his work has been on special teams. He had just one tackle a year ago.
