Chiefs Activate Defensive Tackle Khalen Saunders Ahead of AFC Title Showdown With Bengals

Kansas City's defensive line is getting a boost.

CINCINNATI — The Chiefs waived veteran wide receiver Josh Gordon on Monday to clear room on the roster for defensive tackle Khalen Saunders according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

The 25-year-old has eight tackles in seven games this season. He's been dealing with a knee injury since late November. 

Saunders has appeared in 22 games since the Chiefs took him in the third-round (84th overall) of the 2019 NFL Draft. 

He gives the Chiefs another athletic defensive tackle to lean on this Sunday against the Bengals. It could give defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo the freedom to move Chris Jones and Tershawn Wharton around more than normal. 

The Bengals' offensive line had its' issues against the Titans. They'll have to be much better this week if they're going to beat the Chiefs.
