The Kansas City Chiefs have made a last minute roster move ahead of Sunday’s game, promoting WR Quinten Lawrence to the 53-man roster from the practice squad and cutting CB Mike Richardson in the process.
Richardson was signed a few weeks ago when the Chiefs were dealing with a rash of injuries in their secondary. With most of the roster healthy at this point the Chiefs may have felt they no longer needed Richardson and decided to call up Lawrence.
I don’t think the move indicates that there are any injury concerns with the KC receivers. Kansas City currently has Dwayne Bowe, Verran Tucker, Chris Chambers, Terrence Copper and Dexter McCluster available at receiver so even if one of the wideouts were hurt a roster move wouldn’t be necessary.
Lawrence may see the field today in special teams action but I doubt we see him on the field with the offense.
