Chiefs bring back surprising preseason cut

December, 3, 2013
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Given the way he played during the preseason, nose tackle Jerrell Powe looked like he would make the Kansas City Chiefs' regular season roster as a backup to Dontari Poe. So it was a surprise shortly before the start of the regular season when Powe was released.

The Chiefs changed their mind on Powe Tuesday when he was re-signed. They released defensive tackle Kyle Love, who had only joined the Chiefs last month. Love was a healthy scratch for last week's game against the Denver Broncos.

The Chiefs can't have big plans for Powe, not the way they use Poe. He rarely comes out of the game, so Powe may have little or nothing to do unless Poe is injured. Powe could even be inactive for Sunday's game against the Redskins in Washington.
