Chad Hall received his biggest opportunity with the Chiefs yet on Sunday, logging a season-high 16 offensive snaps in their 26-17 victory over the Titans.

The 5-foot-8, 187-pound receiver caught his first pass of the year, a 9-yard gain, after being targeted four times. He also drew a pass interference penalty.

His previous high for snaps this season was four, which he logged against Philadelphia in week three. He was targeted once in that game.

“We had a little package in there for him and he did some good things early," said Chiefs coach Andy Reid. "Then we blended him throughout the game at different times. He gives you some quickness. Both he and Dexter (McCluster) are a little bit undersized, they’re smaller guys, but they have great quickness. We try to utilize both of them at the same time.”

Hall, who the Chiefs picked up off waivers at the 53-man roster right before the season, did not receive any offensive snaps against Jacksonville, Dallas or New York. The third-year pro has 15 career catches for 144 yards and two touchdowns.
