Chiefs Promote FB; NFL Transactions – 12/1

With a game to play on Sunday, the business of football continued around the Chiefs on Saturday, even with the death of inside linebacker Jovan Belcher.

Sadly his passing left a roster spot open, and the Chiefs filled it by promoting FB Chris DiMarco from the practice squad.

The 6-1, 234-pound DiMarco has been on the developmental team all season. He joined the Chiefs on August 2nd, was released on August 31 during the final cutdown to 53 players and then was signed to the practice squad on September 1.

DiMarco played at the University of South Carolina, finishing up with the 2010 season. He was signed as an undrafted free agent for the 2011 season, but suffered a broken foot in the third day of camp and that finished his 2011.

How and where DiMarco fits with FB Nate Eachus and the Chiefs running game we may see against the Panthers. He figures to be very active on special teams.
