Chiefs Try Out Former Packers Center

The Kansas City Chiefs are on the lookout for help along the offensive line in the wake of starting center Rodney Hudson going down with a knee injury. Without Hudson, the Chiefs are without any backup interior offensive linemen on the 53-man roster.

First up for a shot at a potential opening on the Chiefs roster is former Green Bay Packers center Sampson Genus, according to Aaron Wilson.

Genus spent time on the Packers practice squad but did not appear in any regular season game, which is important to note because of all the trouble Green Bay has had along their offensive line the last two seasons.

He certainly would fit the Chiefs profile of signing centers that also played defensive line. Injured practice squad center Luke Patterson was a defensive end before being moved to the offensive line. Genus played his entire sophomore season at South Florida at defensive tackle before switching back to the other side of the line.
