This marks the second straight week — and final time in 2021 — the Chiefs can activate Harris.

The Kansas City Chiefs made a minor roster move on Saturday, activating defensive end Demone Harris to the game-day roster from the practice squad. They announced the move on their official Twitter account.

The Chiefs travel to take on the Washington Football Team on Sunday at Noon Arrowhead Time.

This is the second straight week the Chiefs have activated the 25-year-old Harris, with defensive lineman Chris Jones set to miss his second straight game. He played 10 defensive snaps for the Chiefs against the Buffalo Bills. He has appeared in six regular-season games for the Chiefs over the past two seasons.

As an elevated player, he will be automatically returned to the practice squad roster after Sunday’s game. With practice squad elevations capped at two per player, the Chiefs will need to sign him to the 53-man roster the next time they opt to use him in a game.
