Chiefs Sign LB Charlie Anderson; LB Cameron Sheffield Heads To IR

The Kansas City Chiefs didn't place LB Cameron Sheffield on IR during cut down week after he had suffered a neck injury during the preseason. We thought that was a sign that Sheffield, the Chiefs 2010 fifth round pick, would be ready at some point this season.

Apparently not.

The Chiefs announced that they have placed Sheffield on injured reserve ending his season. It's the second straight year a Chiefs draft pick has hit IR before playing in a regular season game (Colin Brown, 2009 fifth round pick).

Taking his spot is LB Charlie Anderson. The Chiefs connection with Anderson is that he was on the Miami Dolphins in 2008-09 while Bill Parcells was running the show.

Anderson has played in 92 NFL games including four years with the Houston Texans (2004-07) and then the Dolphins. For his career, he has 62 tackles, 7.5 sacks and four forced fumbles. He was originally a sixth round pick from Ole Miss.

That's too bad for Sheffield. He had started to pick things up during the preseason before the injury happened. Best of luck to him in his recovery.
