Kansas City Chiefs sign a receiver to the practice squad

Grant Halverson

The Chiefs add yet another wideout as they've done all season long.

The Kansas City Chiefs announced a minor move today with the addition of wide receiver Jheranie Boyd to the team's practice squad. The change comes after the team created a spot after cutting tackle Dustin Waldron from injured reserve.

The Chiefs have sought wide receiver options throughout the season to bolster the bottom of the roster. In recent weeks, the Chiefs signed WR Kyle Williams off of waivers, formerly with the San Francisco 49ers, only to place him to injured reserve nine days later. Chad Hall has cycled on and off the roster, and Rashad Ross was added last month to the practice squad. Even in the beginning of the year, the Chiefs and Niners traded disappointing first round picks in the A.J. Jenkins-Jonathan Baldwin swap.

Boyd is a 6'2 receiver from North Carolina where he suffered through an injury-plagued senior season, which might account for his undrafted status. He had 44 receptions, 860 receiving yards and 13 touchdowns in his four-year career.

Boyd was signed as an undrafted free agent after this year's NFL Draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He was released a month later, but caught on with the Cincinnati Bengals in the preseason. The Chiefs are now officially his third NFL team.

Update: Here's some college highlights from Boyd:
