Found August 31, 2012 on Fox Sports Kansas City:
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Chiefs have cut defensive tackle Amon Gordon and linebacker Leon Williams, a pair of veterans, while trimming their roster to the 53-man limit. Kansas City also put defensive back De'Quan Menzie, a fifth-round draft pick who missed nearly all of the offseason with a hip injury, and quarterback Alex Tanney on injured reserve. Other players waived by the Chiefs include fullback Patrick DiMarco, offensive linemen Darryl Harris and David Mims, and fourth-year safety Donald Washington. Safe for now is running back Nate Eachus, a rookie out of Colgate. He won over players and fans with his spirited play throughout training camp and the preseason. Still, more roster moves are possible as the Chiefs consider other players who've been waived.
