The Kansas City Chiefs made edits to the roster ahead of their Week 14 game against the Denver Broncos.

The club waived defensive tackle Taylor Stallworth on Tuesday.

"The Kansas City Chiefs informed me they are releasing my client Taylor Stallworth," said Brett Tessler, Stallworth's agent. "Veteran DT should get interest from other teams on waivers."

The Chiefs signed Stallworth back in April for added depth on the interior of the defensive line but didn’t make it to the 53-man roster. He signed to the practice squad and was activated on the roster in mid-October.

Stallworth has since appeared in six games, recording four total tackles.

The 27-year-old joined the New Orleans Saints as an undrafted free agent in 2018. He spent two seasons with there and two with the Indianapolis Colts before signing with Kansas City.

In Stallworth's place, the Chiefs could activate defensive tackle Brandon Williams or running back Melvin Gordon, who were both recently signed to the practice squad.

If Stallworth clears waivers, he could return to the Kansas City practice squad.
