Loses spot again

Ealy was cut from the Chiefs' practice squad Thursday, Charles Goldman of USA Today reports.

Analysis: Ealy was previously cut by the team Dec. 27, then brought back Jan. 3. It's unclear whether or not he'll get the same opportunity this time. The 22-year-old was brought in by the Chiefs as an UDFA in May, but he never made it to the their active roster.

Loses roster spot

The Chiefs cut Ealy from their practice squad Tuesday, Matt Derrick of reports.

Analysis: Ealy, who has thus far spent the entire season on Kansas City's practice squad, is now slated to search for playing opportunities elsewhere following Tuesday's transaction. The 187-pounder rotated between running back and wide receiver early in training camp, but he was later handed a six-game suspension in early-October for violating the league's performance-enhancing drug policy.

Suspension lifted Monday

Ealy's six-game suspension for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drug policy was lifted by league commissioner Roger Goodell on Monday, Charles Goodman of USA Today reports.

Analysis: Ealy will immediately count toward the Chiefs' 16-man practice squad limit after returning from this suspension. As a result, the undrafted running back, who also saw reps at wide receiver this preseason, will now be eligible for three elevations while on Kansas City's practice squad this season.

Ealy will be suspended for six weeks due to a violation of the NFL's performance-enhancing drug policy, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Ealy will not be eligible for any game-day activations while on the Chiefs' practice squad until Week 11. The undrafted rookie has yet to make his NFL debut after being waived by the Chiefs in early August.
