One former Jayhawk moved on from the Chiefs roster and another slid into his place Wednesday as the team signed safety Bradley McDougald to the practice squad and released fullback Toben Opurum.

McDougald, who was released from the Chiefs’ 53-man roster Monday to make room for tight end Kevin Brock, is back with the club after only a few days. He signed as a rookie free agent in May after appearing in 47 games for Kansas from 2009-12.

Opurum, who also joined the team in May as a rookie free agent, played defensive end and linebacker at Kansas from 2009-12.
