Before the Kansas City Chiefs beat the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday night, they released fullback Toben Opurum from the practice squad in favor of fellow-Jayhawk Bradley McDougald.
The only reason they needed to make room for McDougald is because they cut him from the 53-man roster due to injuries at tight end. Now three days later they’ve gotten both former Kansas stars back on the team by signing Opurum to the practice squad.
The fullback is taking the place of Jordan Miller. GM John Dorsey signed Miller last year when he was still with the Green Bay Packers and the defensive lineman was there until final cuts this season.
Miller — like McDougald and Opurum — could be back with the Chiefs over the next few weeks as they continue to shuffle their practice squad.
