The Chiefs added wide receiver Junior Hemingway to their practice squad on Saturday, reacquiring a player the club selected in the seventh round of this year’s draft but cut to make the 53-man roster limit earlier this month.

To create space for Hemingway, the Chiefs terminated the practice squad contract of offensive lineman Rich Ranglin.

Hemingway, 6 feet 1 and 222 pounds, had one catch for 14 yards during the preseason. Ranglin, 6 feet 3 and 315 pounds, spent three seasons in the Arena Football League before joining the Chiefs.
