The Kansas City Chiefs made a minor transaction on Tuesday, according to the NFL’s official transactions report. Days after waiving linebacker Darius Harris, the Chiefs signed him back to their practice squad.

Kansas City had signed Harris, who had two Super Bowl rings in previous stints with the club, back in late October after Nick Bolton suffered a wrist injury.

Harris stepped up for the Chiefs during the 2022 regular season with Willie Gay Jr. suspended at the time. Appearing in 17 regular-season games, he recorded 43 tackles (23 solo), including three for a loss and 1.5 sacks. Harris added five tackles in the playoffs, including one in Kansas City’s Super Bowl win over the Philadelphia Eagles.

Harris linked up with the Las Vegas Raiders in early August, spending part of training camp with the team before joining their practice squad in October. The acquisition of Harris at this time is interesting, considering Gay injured his tailbone last game against the Denver Broncos.

During his most recent tenure in 2023, Harris appeared in five games, registering 71 snaps on special teams.
