Morgan, Not Daniels, Lines up at Free Safety for the Chiefs in Practice

The Kansas City Chiefs took the practice field today in preparation for Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.  Josh Looney of has a practice report up and, somewhat surprisingly, DaJuan Morgan lined up at free safety.

The position has been an area of concern since news broke this morning that Jarrad Page was being placed on IR, ending his season, and Jon McGraw has been (and continues to be) out with a leg injury.

Travis Daniels, signed this morning by the team, was working with the cornerbacks.

Looney also tells us that Mike Richardson was missing from practice, which is perhaps the reason Daniels was filling in there, instead of at free safety.  Daniels has a little experience at safety and is familiar with the Chiefs scheme so many of us thought he was signed for short-term safety help.

No word on Richardson at this point.  He had been playing the nickel since being signed a couple weeks ago.

If Daniels was signed to supplement the Chiefs at safety then they're getting off to a slow start.  Or Richardson's absence signals the arrival of another player.  

As always with this Chiefs roster, stay tuned.
