The Kansas City Chiefs made two roster moves on Wednesday, according to the NFL’s official transaction report.

First, defensive end Mike Danna was designated to return from injured reserve. The Chiefs had placed the fifth-round rookie on IR with a hamstring injury back on October 10. This gives the the Chiefs a possible three weeks to get Danna back into shape so he can return to the 53-man roster, but he will likely return sooner than that, as we saw with defensive tackle Khalen Saunders.

In another move, the Chiefs signed a familiar face — offensive lineman Bryan Witzmann — to their practice squad.

Witzmann, 30, spent 2016-17 with the Chiefs, including 13 starts at left guard in 2017. After his stint with Kansas City, Witzmann bounced around between five teams before landing back with Kansas City on Wednesday. Witzmann last teased a potential return to the Chiefs in December of 2019, but it never happened.

Witzmann would most likely offer the Chiefs emergency depth at both guard positions.
