DeMarcus Van Dyke, who was waived with an injured designation yesterday, has cleared waivers and will remain with the Kansas City Chiefs.
Of note from the Chiefs players clearing waivers, CB DeMarcus Van Dyke (high ankle sprain) was moved to Chiefs injured reserve.

Per league rules, Van Dyke will be on the injured reserve list for the rest of the season and will not be able to practice with the team. What this does do is keep him with the organization and allow him to fight for a spot on the 53-man roster next season. And given the current state of the Chiefs cornerback situation, he may have a shot to make the team next summer.
Van Dyke was very solid for the Chiefs in coverage in his time this preseason. His speed works very well with the type of defense the Chiefs like to run. Getting him healthy and allowing him another year of learning the scheme could put him in an even better position with the team this time next year.
Meanwhile, all of the Chiefs cuts from Saturday have cleared waivers and are eligible to be signed by any team, including the Chiefs. Some of those players still have practice squad eligibility. Kansas City has reportedly signed seven players to their practice squad already, including six players who were cut on Saturday.
