The Kansas City Chiefs players had the day off on Tuesday, but that didn’t stop the front office from continuing their seemingly run on non-stop roster moves. Following up a busy weekend after establishing an initial 53-man roster, GM John Dorsey and head coach Andy Reid made three roster moves.
Injured fifth-round pick Sanders Commings was placed on IR with a designation for return and undrafted free agent Bradley McDougald was signed to take his spot on the roster.
Commings broke his clavicle exactly six weeks ago, in what was initially described as a 6-8 week injury. Either the Chiefs think the injury needs more time to heal or want to give the rookie more time to catch up on the playbook, because this move puts him on the shelf until after Week 8.
McDougald made the Chiefs initial 53-man roster, but was a casualty of their seven waiver claims. He flashed plenty of potential throughout training camp and the preseason, making him a guy that could end up sticking beyond when Commings returns.
In addition to those two moves, the Chiefs also tinkered with the practice squad, signing Rishaw Johnson. The second year guard was an undrafted free agent with the Seattle Seahawks last year, spending time on their practice squad in 2012. He made it to the final cuts this season.
Johnson was a teammate of Kansas City backup center Eric Kush at California University of Pennsylvania.
