Chiefs Make Weekly Saturday Move With Copper

An injury to his left knee sent WR and special teams ace Terrance Copper to the injured-reserve list Saturday afternoon.

His spot on the 53-man roster that will face the Broncos in Denver on Sunday was taken by rookie WR Junior Hemingway, who was promoted from the practice squad.

Copper had 8 receptions on the season for 79 yards, along with one rush for one yard. In the kicking game, he also had a kickoff return for 16 yards and a punt return for 25 yards on top is five tackles in special teams coverage.

The 6-1, 222-pound Hemingway was drafted in the seventh round (pick No. 238) of the 2012 NFL Draft. He spent the previous 16 weeks on the practice squad.
