Chiefs Send Morgan, Rogers to IR; Promote Lokey, Price

The Kansas City Chiefs safety position just went from bad to worse. With just two games remaining in the season, the Chiefs sent DaJuan Morgan to injured reserve. Morgan saw quite a bit of action last weekend with Jon McGraw nursing a hand injury. He spent the week on the injury report with a chest problem.

To help with the void at safety, Ricky Price was promoted from the practice squad. Price, 6'1", 195 pounds, is a rookie out of Oklahoma State. He spent training camp with the Chiefs and later re-signed.

The Chiefs also placed Justin Rogers on IR. A linebacker that was signed and released several times this season, Rogers has been on and off the injury report during the season.

With the open roster spot, the Chiefs promoted NT Derek Lokey. He was thought to be a candidate to be moved to the active roster when the Chiefs released Kenny Smith leaving just one nose tackle on the roster.  Lokey also spent training camp with the Chiefs.

Quick recap....

To IR: Morgan and Rogers

To active roster: Lokey and Price

The Chiefs now have two open spots on the practice squad.
