Chiefs Promote Bellamy: Is He WR or DB?

From Cleveland, Ohio

In what has become a normal part of each game week, the Chiefs made a roster move late Saturday afternoon.

They released G Hayworth Hicks and promoted WR Josh Bellamy from the practice squad.

But Bellamy is unlikely to play wide receiver if he’s active; he spent the entire week practicing with the Chiefs defense because of a shortage of defensive backs due to injury. Last week, when Abram Berry and Eric Berry went out with injuries, and Kendrick Lewis was already inactive, they were down to one safety and they were prepping RB Shaun Draughn to go in if necessary.

The 6-foot, 206-pound Bellamy was signed as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Louisville.

Hayworth was claimed on waivers from the Jets on November 29, but never saw the field, as he was inactive for last week’s game.
