ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs waived wide receiver Antonio Callaway and tight end Evan Baylis with injury designations while placing running back Elijah McGuire on injured reserve in a series of roster moves Tuesday.

The Chiefs had until the middle of the afternoon to trim their roster to 85 players, but they chose to make the necessary moves before practice at Missouri Western. Wide receiver Chad Williams was released and defensive back Manny Patterson was waived to get the Chiefs to the required roster limit by the first cut-down deadline.

Callaway has been out with a bone bruise and Baylis with an ankle injury, while McGuire sprained his ankle in Kansas City’s preseason opener against San Francisco last weekend.
