Chiefs Roster Moves: Kansas City Sign Player To Roster, Practice Squad


The Kansas City Chiefs weren’t done wheeling and dealing after the major cuts of the weekend. Word has come out that the Chiefs have made a few more moves.

According to a press release from Chiefs Communications, the organization has signed one more player to the official roster, and have also added a practice squad player:

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Kansas City Chiefs announced on Tuesday that the club has signed safety Bradley McDougald to the 53-man roster and placed safety Sanders Commings on injured reserve with a designation for return. Additionally, the team has signed offensive guard Rishawn Johnson to the practice squad roster.

It appears as if McDougald is going to end up back in Kansas City. McDougald was actually released from the roster on Sunday, but the Chiefs have resigned him to replace Sanders Commings, who is now on the injured reserve. The Chiefs had originally picked up McDougald as an undrafted free agent this season after playing his college ball at Kansas.

Commings was drafted in the fifth round of the 2013 draft by Kansas City, but broke his left collarbone in July.

Finally, there’s Rishawn Johnson, who will play on the practice squad. According to the Associated Press, Johnson is replacing Rokevious Watkins, who will be suspended for a game after breaking the substance-abuse policy.

    Roller coaster for MacDougald.
    1) Tweets: So happy I mad the team…!
    2) Cut
    3) Back on team
    I would guess his celebration this time was more muted.

        I agree he has stood and he has a motor that is always running it seems like. Kinda reminds me of Tyrann Mathieu in the sense of how he flies around and always seems to be around the ball to make plays. I think he is going to be a good player and one of the other safties will be going home to make room for Cummings IMO.
