Leonard Pope made a tough catch over the middle during the Chiefs’ offseason practice Tuesday, and most of Pope’s teammates cheered the acrobatic play. Two of those teammates, Brad Cottam and Tony Moeaki, couldn’t do much other than watch and clap.

Pope’s play Tuesday was a source of optimism for the Chiefs’ tight ends, but the presence of Cottam and Moeaki on the sideline kept the enthusiasm in check. Cottam is still recovering from neck surgery, after he fractured a vertebra during a game against Cleveland last December. Moeaki, a third-round pick in April’s NFL draft, has an undisclosed injury that has kept him out of recent team drills.

Former starting tight end Leonard Pope and four-year safety Aaron Francisco were among 21 players cut Friday by the Arizona Cardinals, who reached the NFL's 53-man roster limit.

The pass-crazy Cardinals kept seven wide receivers, including Lance Long, a member of Arizona's 2008 practice squad who caught just 14 passes in his senior season at Mississippi State. Whisenhunt said the injury to Early Doucet, out with fractured ribs, figured in the decision.

Other players cut include quarterback Tyler Palko, cornerback Wilrey Fontenot, linebacker Victor Hobson, wide receiver Onrea Jones, center Melvin Fowler and offensive tackle Oliver Ross.

East Valley Tribune: For the Cardinals, linebacker/defensive end
Travis LaBoy, who has struggled with a lingering ankle problem,
was inactive. So were a couple of Cardinals whose stock dropped
this season: tight end Leonard Pope and cornerback Eric Green.
Also sitting out were offensive tackles Elliot Vallejo and Brandon
Keith, defensive tackle Alan Branch, receiver Early Doucet and
emergency quarterback Brian St. Pierre.

Pierre, SS Oliver Celestin, T Elliot Vallejo, T Brandon
Keith, DT Alan Branch, TE Leonard Pope, TE Ben Patrick

Thursday, October 30, 2008, 8:00pm

4for4 reports: Cardinals TE Ben Patrick (knee questionable)
was limited at practice Friday. In addition, TE Leonard Pope (ankle) will not play. All this is good news for Steve Breaston.

Wednesday, November 12, 2008, 7:00pm

4for4 reports: The Cardinals TEs are improving as Ben Patrick
(knee), TE Leonard Pope (ankle) and J. Tuman (ankle) have all been
practicing this week. This could take a few touches away from
their #3 WR Steve Breaston, but don't count on it.

Wednesday, January 7, 2009, 7:00pm

Arizona Republic: Cardinals DE/OLB Travis LaBoy (ankle) practiced
on a limited basis all week and should play. I don't expect TE Ben Patrick (knee) to play, but Leonard Pope (knee) practiced all
week, and starter Stephen Spach is healthy. Pope missed last
week's game.

Wednesday, January 7, 2009, 7:00pm

4for4 reports: Cardinals TE Ben Patrick (knee) is very iffy for
Carolina. Most likely, Arizona will look to Leonard Pope (knee)
and Stephen Spach at TE.

Thursday, January 8, 2009, 7:00pm

4for4 reports: Cardinals TE Ben Patrick (knee questionable)
did not practice this week and is a long shot to play. On
the plus side, they expect to have TE Leonard Pope (knee
probable) available.

Wednesday, January 14, 2009, 7:00pm

4for4 reports: Cardinals TE Ben Patrick (knee) got some work in both Wednesday
and Thursday. Bottom line at TE? Stephen Spach will not play and Leonard Pope
and Patrick should both be able to dress out.

Wednesday, October 1, 2008, 8:00pm

4for4 reports: Cardinals TE Leonard Pope (ankle) was
limited at practice Wednesday and missed practice Thursday.
Backup Cardinals TE J. Tuman (hamstring) remains doubtful
for this weekend.

Thursday, October 2, 2008, 8:00pm

4for4 reports: Cardinals TE Leonard Pope (ankle) remains
questionable. Pope did not practice Thursday and was limited at
practice Friday.
