UPDATE: The Chiefs signed 2 players and put two more on IR. Details here.

For the second time this season the Kansas City Chiefs have signed a player off of the Baltimore Ravens practice squad. The Baltimore Sun reports the Chiefs have signed tight end Phillip Supernaw. He will be on the Chiefs active roster, possibly taking the roster spot of running back Cyrus Gray, who tore his ACL last Sunday.

Supernaw's signing is likely due to the broken foot suffered by Chiefs tight end Demetrius Harris. He will likely be out for a while if not the entire year (the Chiefs haven't said so either way). Anthony Fasano is also banged up with a knee contusion but should be fine.

Supernaw is a 6'5, 248-pound tight end who was a 2012 undrafted free agent signed by the Houston Texans before moving onto the Ravens. His career stats list one catch for minus-two yards. He was cut and re-signed to the Ravens practice squad last week.

The Chiefs found cornerback Jamell Fleming earlier this season off of the Ravens practice squad, too.
