KC Chiefs Roster update: OL Hayworth Hicks released; WR Josh Bellamy promoted from practice squad

The Kansas City Chiefs made a minor roster move Saturday evening.


Before taking on the Cleveland Browns tomorrow, the Kansas City Chiefs have switched up their roster a bit, releasing just-signed OL Hayworth Hicks and promoting 2012 practice squad member WR Josh Bellamy to the 53-man roster.

The Chiefs' press release has more info:

Bellamy (6-0, 206) originally joined the Chiefs as a rookie free agent on April 30, 2012. He has been serving on the club's practice squad all season. He played in 26 games (17 starts) in two seasons at Louisville, compiling 53 catches for 681 yards (12.8 avg.) with seven touchdowns. Bellamy spent two years at Butte Community College in Oroville, Calif., prior to his arrival at Louisville. Bellamy prepped at Boca Ciega High School in Gulfport, Fla.

Hicks (6-3, 336) was claimed off waivers by the Chiefs on Nov. 29 and was inactive for one contest. He entered the league as an undrafted free agent with the Indianapolis Colts in April of 2012. He spent time on the Colts practice squad before being acquired by the New York Jets on Nov. 6. With the Jets, he spent three games on the club's roster but was inactive. Born in Los Angeles, Calif., Hicks started 24 of 36 games at guard for Iowa State. Prior to joining the Cyclones, he played left tackle for Antelope Valley Community College. He prepped at Palmdale High School in Palmdale, Calif.

We'll wait until before the Browns game tomorrow to see if Bellamy will be on the game day roster. Don't look too much into this move. The bottom rung of the roster shifts quite a bit.
