Chiefs Make Two Moves

The Chiefs opened up a spot on their active roster and practice squad late Tuesday when they released WR Jeremy Horne, and then placed FB Shane Bannon on the practice squad injured list.

That leaves a spot open on the 53-man active roster and a position is available on the practice squad that can have eight players.

Horne was released on the final cutdown before the start of the regular season and was then added to the practice squad. He was moved to the active roster on September 21 when RB Jamaal Charles was placed on the injured-reserve list. There was action in three games on special teams for Horne, before he was a game-day inactive player last Sunday against the Raiders. He was credited with one tackle.

Bannon injured his right ankle last Wednesday and did not return to the practice field last week. The team’s seventh-round draft choice, he will be unavailable to them the rest of the season.

Coming out of the Oakland game the only serious injury seemed to be FS Kendrick Lewis’ ankle. Whether that would bring the addition of another safety is unknown. They’ve been short a tight end all season as well.

    Hate to see Horne go; it seemed like he and Verran Tucker had some potential. Maybe they’ll put him on the PS. Or maybe he just got as good as he was going to and that’s it. In any case, I would really like to see the Chiefs sign RB Jordan Todman off the Chargers practice squad; he’s a nifty runner who could help. Hopefully, Kendrick Lewis is not injured seriously enough that they need to bring in another safety. Maybe they found a TE worth bringin in?

    Bob, does Horne have Practice Squad eligibility? Or has he played in too many games?

    Horne has PS eligibility left. Would like to see Tucker back – however, with Baldwin healthy I think that’s unlikely. Think they’ll add a TE or LB – Williams giving the ball back on a punt (by means of more than stupid fouls) for a second time this season is just … ‘%$&*****! … Justin Cole someone?
