With injury troubles at safety, the Kansas City Chiefs have promoted Ricky Price to the 53-man roster from the practice squad, the team announced.
Price (6-1, 195) spent the first eight games of the season on the Chiefs practice squad. He appeared in two games for Kansas City a year ago after joining the club as a rookie free agent. He saw action in 49 games (34 starts) at Oklahoma State, recording 159 tackles (109 solo), 6.5 tackles for loss, 3.0 sacks (-19.0 yards), an INT and 11 passes defensed. Price prepped at Cypress Falls High School in Houston, Texas.
The club released LB Charlie Anderson. Anderson played in two games with Kansas City in 2010 after signing with the club as a free agent.
This move isn’t good news for the health of Jon McGraw and Kendrick Lewis. Haley loves special teams guys, so he isn’t going to send someone like Anderson packing unless he was pretty sure that Price would have to line up on defense for the Chiefs on Sunday.
It’s not often that a player playing in his 10th game is the grizzled veteran, but it looks like that’s what we will be looking at with Eric Berry playing next to Price.
