Chiefs make several roster moves ahead of Super Bowl LV vs. Buccaneers

NFL: Super Bowl LIV-AFC Champions-Press Conference Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Kansas City Chiefs announced several roster moves ahead of Super Bowl LV on Saturday afternoon — their final roster moves of the 2020-21 season. The announcements came via the team’s official Twitter account.

As expected, left tackle Eric Fisher and linebacker Willie Gay were moved to injured reserve. Fisher tore his Achilles in the AFC title game and Gay tore his meniscus during practice leading up to the Super Bowl.

In their places, tight end Deon Yelder was activated from injured reserve and defensive back Chris Lammons was activated from the team’s practice squad.

The Chiefs also used standard practice squad elevation to bring up wide receiver Marcus Kemp and quarterback Matt Moore to the active roster. The Chiefs can elevate two players thanks to the NFL’s roster rules for 2020.

Earlier on Saturday, backup center Daniel Kilgore was cleared to travel with the team.

Kilgore, like Demarcus Robinson, spent time on the COVID-19 list this week stemming from the now-infamous barber incident. Robinson was cleared to play in Super Bowl LV on Friday.
