The Chiefs cut Weber on Monday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Analysis: Weber latched on in Kansas City via a reserve/future deal in January, but he'll now lose his roster spot to make room for a wave of undrafted free agents. After having spent most of the 2019 season on Dallas' practice squad, Weber will now be free to look for another depth opportunity.
Weber signed a reserve/future contract with the Chiefs on Tuesday, according to the NFL's official transaction report.
Analysis: Weber signed with the Chiefs less than a month ago after spending the majority of the 2019 season on the Cowboys' practice squad. He'll now get a chance to develop in the Chiefs system this offseason as he looks to crack the 53-man roster in the fall.

Weber signed with the Cowboys' practice squad Monday, Rob Phillips of the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Weber didn't survive cut-down day Saturday, but he'll at least be able to stick around in Dallas. The Ohio State product rushed for 2,676 yards and 24 touchdowns over 28 games in college before being selected in the seventh round by the Cowboys in this year's draft.
Weber was released by the Cowboys on Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Analysis: This further reinforces the idea Ezekiel Elliott will be available Week 1, as the Cowboys also released Darius Jackson and Jordan Chunn. A sixth-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, Weber figures to be a practice-squad candidate should he slip through waivers.
Weber is expected to begin the season on the practice squad, John Owning of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: While fellow rookie Tony Pollard has been allowed to shine in the preseason, Weber has been mostly hidden by the Cowboys, staying on the sidelines while other depth RB options like Jordan Chunn and Darius Jackson get snaps. This points to the front office having already decides the seventh-round pick won't make the 53-man roster, but the draft investment in him would indicate the club would like to slip him through waivers onto the practice squad. Assuming he isn't grabbed by another team along the way, Weber would need injuries at the position to have a chance of seeing regular-season action with the Cowboys this year.
The MRI that Weber (knee) recently underwent revealed no ligament damage and the running back returned to practice with full participation Wednesday and Thursday, Nick Eatman of the Cowboys' official site reports.
Analysis: Weber was held out of the last couple days of rookie minicamp earlier this month with a knee injury that at one point was thought to potentially require surgery. The Ohio State product has since returned to both individual and team drills in the first leg of OTAs this week and appears ready to compete for the No. 2 running back job in Dallas. Weber, a seventh-round pick, will primary compete with fellow rookie and fourth-round pick Tony Pollard along with veteran Darius Jackson.
Weber (knee) hopes to avoid surgery, but he may eventually need an arthroscopic procedure if his injury doesn't improve with rest, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: The rookie seventh-round pick had an MRI on his sore right knee after leaving the field early during Saturday's practice at rookie minicamp. Weber is hoping to compete with Darius Jackson and fellow rookie Tony Pollard (a fourth-round pick) for the No. 2 spot on the depth chart behind workhorse Ezekiel Elliot. The Cowboys still have plenty of time to bring in veteran competition before training camp, though most of the recognizable names on the market have serious concerns regarding age and/or injury.
Weber left Saturday's rookie minicamp with a knee injury that will require a MRI, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: The seventh-round pick did attend the afternoon portion of rookie practice, but did not participate so it's possible the injury isn't serious. Weber was supposed to be a fairly impactful member of the Cowboys' backfield as the team attempts to lessen Ezekiel Elliott's workload, so any type of injury could be difficult for both player and team.
