The Kansas City Chiefs wrapped up a busy day of transactions by signing tight end Dominique Jones to the practice squad. He takes the place of offensive lineman Rokevious Watkins, who was promoted to the 53-man roster after the release of tight end Kevin Brock.
Jones caught on with the Indianapolis Colts last year as an undrafted free agent out of tiny Shepherd University. In two seasons he has seen action in 10 games (three starts) with three catches for 42 yards, including six games this season.
The Chiefs now have two tight ends on the active roster — Anthony Fasan0, Sean McGrath — and two on the practice squad — Jones, Demetrius Harris.
Though it was injuries that had head coach Andy Reid carrying more than two tight ends on the active roster for most of the season, it wouldn’t be a shock to see Jones or Harris get the call up. Fasano has looked great since returning from a month-long absence, but might need help as he battles through his injuries.
