Sanders Commings finally got a chance to play in his rookie season, but the opportunity didn’t last long.
The Chiefs 5th-round draft choice was placed on the injured-reserve list on Saturday because of continuing problems with his right shoulder.
To take his spot on the roster, the Chiefs have promoted OLB Josh Martin from the practice squad.
Commings was activated on November 5th, after spending the first 9 games on the injured-reserve list/designated for return. That was due to a broken collarbone in his right shoulder that he suffered in a rookie practice in the days before the entire team reported for training camp in July.
The cornerback-safety out of the University of Georgia played in 2 games, with only three defensive snaps and 44 plays on special teams.
Martin was signed as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Columbia, and he made the 53-man roster coming out of the pre-season. He was inactive for 3 games and was then released and re-signed to the practice squad where he’s been since then. The 6-3, 245-pounder grew up in Aurora, Colorado so he may get the chance to play with against his hometown team on Sunday.
