Daniel Sorensen Back On 53-Man Roster


The Kansas City Chiefs have added Daniel Sorensen to the 53-man roster after signing him off the practice squad. Adam Teicher says there is a chance he could be active for today’s game against the Jets.

"The Kansas City Chiefs promoted safety Daniel Sorensen from the practice squad to the active roster, and he could be available to play in Sunday’s game against the New York Jets at Arrowhead Stadium."

Sorensen, an undrafted rookie out of BYU, made the team out of the preseason and played in the Chiefs opener against the Tennessee Titans. He was released after week one but was immediately signed to the practice squad a few days later. Sorensen is known for being a quality special teams player, an area where the Chiefs could use a few extra bodies.

Another reason for him potentially being active today is due to the injuries in the secondary. Jamell Fleming and Chris Owens will both be out with injuries. Eric Berry will be back this week but that’s still one secondary spot left open.

To make room for Sorensen on the roster the Chiefs cut defensive lineman Damion Square. Square was picked up off waivers from the Philadelphia Eagles after the NFL’s 53-man cutdown. One would expect the Chiefs will try to sign him to the practice squad next week.

Square had not been active for any of the Chiefs first seven games.
