The Chiefs have released running back C.J. Spiller again, sources tell Terez A. Paylor of the Kansas City Star (Twitter links). Andy Reid says that Charcandrick West will probably be ready to go against Denver next week, so that would help to explain why Spiller is being put back on the curb.
Pro Football Rumors readers are familiar with Spiller’s saga by now. Spiller caught on with Kansas City in February after spending time with multiple times in 2016. The former first-round pick missed the Chiefs’ initial cut in early September, but he has since been yo-yo’d on and off of the roster in almost unprecedented fashion. The veteran has now been released by the Chiefs four times in the last seven weeks. But, if history is any indication, he could be back with the team around Halloween.
Spiller totaled 1,244 rushing yards back in 2012, but he ran for just 1,363 total yards in the next four seasons. This year, he has a grant total of two carries for zero net yards.
