There’s been a Scout.com report that wide receiver Lance Long has been released, which a) would be a good sign about the injury status of gimpy wideouts Anquan Boldin and Steve Breaston and b) would signal somebody else coming on the roster. I would bet it would be someone on the defensive side of the ball, since the Cards are short some people. I’d also guess it’s less likely a veteran than a young guy, perhaps a promotion from the practice squad. We’ll see tomorrow. As for Long, we’ll see if the Cards can keep him on the practice squad or if someone picks him up. He struggled in games of late and seems to need more seasoning.
UPDATE: Long has signed with the Chiefs’ practice squad.
