The Kansas City Chiefs got their practice squad back to the maximum Thursday by signing LB Josh Martin a day after cutting him from the active roster in favor of G Rishaw Johnson.
The undrafted free agent out of Columbia University earned a spot on Andy Reid’s first 53-man roster with the Chiefs, but he was inactive each of the first three games of the regular season.
In four preseason games, Martin had seven tackles, a sack, forced fumble and fumble recovery. Once the move for Johnson was made, the only way Martin wasn’t going to make the transition to the practice squad would have been if he landed on another team’s active roster.
If Reid and the Chiefs can get starting guard Jeff Allen healthy, Martin could find his way back onto the 53-man roster quickly.
