It's Official: Chiefs S Maurice Leggett to Injured Reserve

Well, all the speculation was right on this one.

The Kansas City Chiefs have officially placed S Maurice Leggett on IR meaning his season is done.  Leggett had what appeared to be a painful shoulder injury in Sunday's win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

He hadn't been at practice the last two days fueling speculation that his injury was serious.

The Chiefs are now even more thin at safety.  Leggett was the backup to SS Mike Brown and FS Jon McGraw.  Looks like DaJuan Morgan will see some more time back there.

The Chiefs have an open roster spot now but haven't announced any new additions.  There were no new faces at practice this afternoon.

We're not sure who the Chiefs will sign but in the past they've been quick to bring someone aboard.  

Why isn't someone already signed this time?

I'm not sure.  This is completely a guess and trying to connect some dots but maybe they've put in a waiver wire claim on a player and they're waiting until this afternoon to see if they are awarded a player.
