Chiefs Bring Back CJ Spiller

CJ Spiller rejoined the Kansas City Chiefs after being cut by the team on Saturday.  Cutting Spiller in the first place was to make room on the 53-man roster for Steven Nelson.  The Chiefs wanted to place Nelson on the IR but needed him to make the final roster to do so.  With Spiller back on the roster, the Chiefs have three running backs going into the season.  Spiller could be a big help in the backfield this season with rookie Kareem Hunt taking the lead.
