Yesterday, Kansas City Chiefs RB Kolby Smith was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos.  Today, he's been ruled out for the entire season.

The Chiefs formally placed Smith on IR, a move many of us expected.  It's too bad for him. This is the second consecutive season that's been cut short due to injury.

With the open roster spot, the Chiefs promoted Javarris Williams from the practice squad.  This is also a move many of us expected.

Williams was a 7th round draft pick of the Pioli/Haley regime.  The 5'10", 223 pound back comes from Tennessee State.  AP's Matt Conner interviewed a reporter from the Tennessean and Williams' former college coach.

Williams signed a contract with the Chiefs on July 23rd. He was released on the team's final cutdown in September and immediately re-signed to the practice squad.

Williams could get an opportunity to see some action, too.  Dantrell Savage is also expected to miss Sunday's game meaning after Jamaal Charles, Williams will be in line along with Tim Castille.
