Lawrence is a rookie 6th round pick out of McNeese State.
Lawrence was with the team until being waived on October 24th. Two days later, the Chiefs brought Lawrence back after he went unclaimed in the waiver process.
He was then placed on the practice squad.
Promoting a receiver means the Chiefs will enter the game with just three safeties. Ricky Price, safety on the practice squad, was another player many thought the Chiefs would promote.
This also means the Chiefs have an open spot on the practice squad. Lawrence could be waived and re-signed to the practice squad or the Chiefs could keep him on the active roster.
