The speculation was correct this time regarding Kansas City Chiefs safety Jarrad Page. The fourth year safety has been placed on injured reserve ending his season. Page had struggled with a shoulder injury earlier in the season but reportedly suffered another injury, this time to his calf, last Thursday.
Tough break for Page. He was signed to a one year tender prior to the season, and with Jon McGraw taking his spot last game despite Page being healthy enough to play, you have to wonder if we've seen the last of Page as a Chief.
Taking Page's place on the active roster is CB Travis Daniels. Name sound familiar? It should.
Daniels spent the offseason with the Chiefs before being released on the final cutdown day in early September.
Daniels kind of has a distant Pioli/Haley/Parcells connection. He played under Romeo Crennel when the Browns traded a 7th round pick for him. He also played under Nick Saban at LSU. Saban coached under Belichick while in Cleveland.
He's got a minor injury history, missing all of preseason and the first four games of the 2008 season. He's appeared in 47 games, with 25 starts, accumulating three interceptions, 93 tackles and 20 passes defensed.
Yesterday, Josh Looney of KCChiefs.com reported that Maurice Leggett was getting some time at free safety in practice possibly setting him up to be the emergency in the instance McGraw doesn't fully recover from his strained leg.
With Chris Chambers, that makes two new Chiefs at practice today.
