With Anthony Fasano most likely out for this weekend’s game against the Washington Redskins, the Chiefs have made a move to shore up the tight end position.
According to a press release from the Kansas City Chiefs, the organization has promoted tight end Dominique Jones from the practice squad to the 53-Man Roster.
Here’s the scoop on Jones via the release:
Jones (6-3, 270) has played in 10 games (three starts) in two NFL seasons with the Indianapolis Colts (2012-13). He owns three receptions for 42 yards (14.0 avg.). Jones joined the Chiefs practice squad on Oct. 30, 2013. He originally entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Colts on April 30, 2012. Jones spent the majority of his time with Indianapolis on the club’s practice squad roster and served a brief stint on Miami’s practice squad in 2012 as well. He played collegiately at Shepherd University where he totaled 34 receptions for 403 yards and nine touchdowns his senior season. The San Diego, Calif., native prepped at Horizon Christian Academy.
To make room for Jones, the club had to let go of wideout Chad Hall. The third year wideout played eight games with the Chiefs, recording one reception for nine yards. He was targeted nine times.
Hall has been a return man in his career (his other two years were in Philadelphia) but he didn’t return a kick for Kansas City in 2013.
