Chiefs Put Jake O’Connell On IR And Promote OL Rich Ranglin


I would file this under “Whoop-a-dee-do” Chiefs news, but the Chiefs have put Jake O’Connell on IR, ending his season and elevated OL Rich Ranglin up to the 53 man roster. O’Connell’s loss isn’t significant, but the Chiefs are short handed at TE with Kevin Boss already on IR. However, Ranglin is needed on the active roster even more with Asamoah out and Lilja questionable. If Lilja can’t go then Ranglin and Bryan Mattison will be the only other offensive linemen available should any other offensive linemen go down.

So, I guess if you had Jake O’Connell on your fantasy team, you should drop him….and quit fantasy because you’re doing it wrong.

      Actually you are talking about the team’s lucky charm. O’connell may be the luckyest player in the entire NFL. He should not have survived his first season of non production, yet here he is. He is a training camp body but with hunt’s chiefs he is a player.

      Putting him on IR probably means Pioli expects to lose some game, the luck has run out this year.
