Roster Move/Chiefs Update – 12/6

From the Truman Sports Complex

The Chiefs added another linebacker to their active roster on Thursday, signing Leon Williams, who was with them in training camp and the pre-season this summer.

The 6-3, 248-pound Williams has played in 57 games since he was selected in the 4th-round of the 2006 NFL Draft by Cleveland. He spent the better part of four seasons with the Browns. The Brooklyn native then played a season in the UFL and signed with Dallas where he ended up on the injured-reserve list. Over his time in the NF he has 154 total tackles and 5 sacks.

During the Chiefs 2012 pre-season, Williams had 13 total tackles in four games with 3 tackles for loss and two tackles on special teams. Against Seattle in the third pre-season game, Williams was the Chiefs leading tackler with 5 and a hit on the quarterback.

To make room for Williams, the Chiefs placed DE Allen Bailey on the injured-reserve list with a right ankle injury that Crennel said was going to be a four-week injury. The Chiefs have just four games remaining on the 2012 schedule. Bailey suffered in the injury in the second half of last Sunday’s game against Carolina.

On the injury situation, head coach Romeo Crennel said before Thursday’s practice that five players would not practice and four more would be limited in their participation. Out of the practice were CB Brandon Flowers (hamstring), S Abram Elam (quadriceps), ILB Derrick Johnson (hamstring) and C Ryan Lilja (knee).

Scheduled to be limited in practice were FS Kendrick Lewis (shoulder), SS Eric Berry (hand), LT Branden Albert (back) and OLB Tamba Hali (knee).

    Haven’t we been through this before? Do not know the kid at all but we tried every player NE wanted to dump. Now with Crennel as HC, we grab Cleveland players.

    At some point Clark has to do something, anything or, at least, take a breath and prove he is alive.

    I suspected the injury situation having something to do with Vegas moving the original line from 3 to now 6 1/2.
