Chiefs Make Roster Move Tied To Allen’s Injury

On Tuesday, the Chiefs promoted G Rishaw Johnson from their practice squad.

The 6-3, 313-pound Johnson was signed to the practice squad on September 3, after he was released by Seattle on the final roster cutdown date of the pre-season. Johnson came into the NFL last year as an undrafted rookie free agent for the Seahawks.

The move is a pretty good indication that LG Jeff Allen’s groin injury is something that’s going to keep him out of the lineup for at least this week. Allen suffered the injury last Thursday in the second half of the game in Philadelphia.

Johnson finished his college career at California State University of Pennsylvania, where he played with Chiefs offensive lineman Eric Kush. He began his college career at Mississippi where he played three seasons after coming out of Hammond High school in Louisiana.

To make room for Johnson, the Chiefs released rookie OLB Josh Martin, who made the team as an undrafted free agent out of Columbia University. He was inactive for all 3 games.

    Perhaps Allen’s injury was holding his (and the entire OL) play back. I hope they plan on putting Schwartz in there to replace him.
