Chiefs rookie fifth-round pick Tyreek Hill has switched his jersey number from 81 to 10, according to a roster recently released by the team.

New offensive tackle Bryan Witzmann is wearing No. 70, while new inside linebacker Sam Barrington is wearing No. 53 — the same number the player he’s replacing, Ramik Wilson, wore.

A few practice-squad players have also changed numbers. Undrafted rookie Terrance Smith has switched from No. 62 to No. 48, while second-year pro Darrin Reaves has switched from No. 24 to No. 31.
