Yesterday, the Chiefs officially added developmental TE Mark Vital to the practice squad after a successful tryout. In a corresponding move, the team waived WR Maurice Ffrench.

Unfortunately for Cobb, it would seem the Chiefs are going in a different direction at the position, at least for this week as they prep for the Ravens.
