On Saturday, the Kansas City Chiefs used their official Twitter account to announce three roster moves in advance of Sunday night’s game against the Denver Broncos at Arrowhead Stadium.
These two are elevations that will revert to the practice squad on Monday, I’ve been told. https://t.co/ZViqdVBdLM— Pete Sweeney (@pgsween) December 5, 2020
We expected that with a high-ankle sprain, linebacker Dorian O’Daniel would end up on injured reserve. He’ll be out for at least three weeks before being eligible to return.
We also expected Stefen Wisniewski — who was with the Chiefs in 2019 before leaving for the Pittsburgh Steleers in free agency during this past offseason — to be on the fast track to the active roster after being signed to the practice squad on November 24. But this falls a little bit short of that move. Both Wisniewski and defensive back Chris Lammons are being elevated to the active roster from the practice squad; both will automatically return to the practice squad on Monday.
With O’Daniel on injured reserve, this leaves the Chiefs with 52 players on the active roster, but 54 eligible to be active for Sunday Night Football.
One other Saturday note: per NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, the league has fined Chiefs defensive end Frank Clark $15,000 after he was penalized for roughing the passer the Week 12 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Clark drew two such flags during Tampa Bay’s final scoring drive in the fourth quarter of last Sunday’s 27-24 Chiefs victory.
