Chiefs Confirm Kestahn Moore Signing

Rookie running back Kestahn Moore cleared medical tests today and officially became a Kansas City Chief.  Of course, if you read Arrowhead Pride, you knew about this last night.

(Ed. Note: To be clear, Moore joined the practice squad, not active roster. I wasn't clear on that before. Chiefs still have one open spot on the 53 man roster)

Because of the weather, the Chiefs took practice indoors today.

Josh Looney of reports that G Andy Alleman and RB Dantrell Savage participated in practice, although it appears to be on a limited basis.   While Alleman was in half pads like the rest of the team, Wade Smith took the first team snaps at RG.  Savage was moving around in a boot on his ankle.

Jamaal Charles participated in practice despite at one point coming up gimpy in last Sunday's contest against the Denver Broncos.  

The way things stand now, the Chiefs may not be done shuffling the roster.

Ron Edwards is the lone NT on the roster with Kenny Smith's release yesterday. Since it's one of the most physically demanding positions there are a few folks wondering if Todd Haley will promote Derek Lokey from the practice squad. Lokey spent time with the Chiefs in training camp and appears to be the only backup for Edwards.  

As Looney points out, Moore's signing puts six running backs on the Chiefs roster including Jamaal Charles, Tim Castille, Dantrell Savage, Mike Cox and Javarris Williams.  Moore is the only practice squad member.
