Sorensen missed Tuesday’s practice to get a medical diagnosis, and the Chiefs initially feared he was done for the season.

Murray played 39.8 percent of the defensive snaps last season, making two starts. Watts is a fourth-round pick out of Texas A&M. The New York Giants have released five players, but only one who saw action in a regular-season game last season.
The Giants announced the moves Monday Vontae Davis Jersey , four days before the start of a rookie minicamp.
Released were safety Ryan Murphy, guard Damien Mama, receiver Canaan Severin Cameron Erving Jersey , running back Terrell Watson, and punter Austin Rehkow.
