Chiefs Add WR Kevin Curtis

From the Truman Sports Complex

The Chiefs added veteran WR Kevin Curtis to their active roster on Wednesday. To make room for him, they sent DB Donald Washington to the injured-reserve list.

Curtis played two games with the Miami Dolphins in the last half of the ’10 season.  The Utah native has played in 81 NFL games, with St. Louis, Philadelphia and Miami. He also has started five games in the playoffs, catching 23 passes for 446 yards and a TD.

Over the last three seasons, Curtis has been hampered by injuries and illness, playing in just 15 games. In 2008 it was a sports hernia and a calf injury. The following year he had surgery on his left knee. This ’10 season, he was out after having surgery because of testicular cancer. He played in two games with Miami, where he had one catch for six yards.

Coming out of Utah State, Curtis was timed at 4.3 seconds in the 40-yard dash. The 6-0, 186-pounder also attended Snow  Junior College in Utah. He’s 32 years old.

Washington has been dealing with a left ankle/foot injury for several weeks and has not been on the game-day active roster.

The Chiefs also filled an open spot on their practice squad by re-signing TE Cody Slate. He was with the team in training camp, after signing as a rookie free agent out of Murray State.

    Good size, sort of long in the tooth, looks like special teams type or injury releif.

    Too bad to hear about Donald Washington. I thought he was playing some good special teams play especially as a gunner on punt coverage.
