With LB Johnny Baldwin going down against the Raiders with a knee injury, the Chiefs have placed him on injured reserve and added LB Pat Thomas to the active roster.
The Miami, Florida native was a four-year letterman at North Carolina State, appearing in 50 games (36 starts). He finished his collegiate career with 334 tackles (180 solo), 38 stops for loss, 15.5 sacks (-98.0 yards), five forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries. Thomas prepped at Miami Killian High School in Miami, Florida.
Pat Thomas was waived by the Jaguars last week so they could sign a backup QB after David Garrard went down with an injury. Expect to see Thomas play special teams, just like Baldwin did.
