Jamaal To IR; Roster Moves

As was sadly expected RB Jamaal Charles and the torn ACL in his left knee were placed on the injured reserve list on Wednesday. He’s done for the season.

Taking his spot on the active roster is WR Jeremy Horne, promoted from the practice squad. Horne played in three games last year with the Chiefs, and then spent 11 weeks on the practice squad. He had one tackle on special teams. At 6-2, 193 pounds, Horne joined the Chiefs last year as an undrafted rookie free agent out of the University of Massachusetts.

Taking Horne’s slot on the practice squad is OL Lucas Patterson. He was signed for several days the week before last, but not long enough to get on the practice field. Patterson is an undrafted rookie free agent out of Texas A&M where he was a defensive lineman. After the first day of training camp in St. Joseph, he was moved to the offensive line.

    Why didn’t the Chiefs go out and find another running back to replace Charles???? Iam sure there are a few decent ones out there. I have nothing against Jeremy Horne but I just don’t agree with the move.

    so they add a seveth DB to have 53 players on the roster … great. He’ll be inactive on Sunday, waived and signed to the PS by Thursday next week when the brass will have made up their minds which RB to grab.
