The Chiefs have signed offensive lineman Jarrod Pughsley from the practice squad to the active roster, according to the NFL’s daily transaction report. To make room for him, center/guard Daniel Munyer was waived.
Pughsley, 24, played tackle and guard for the Chiefs during the preseason and was one of the final cuts in the 53-man roster deadline before the start of the season.
At 6 feet 4 and 310 pounds, Pughsley could provide depth inside and outside for a Chiefs team that is banged up along the offensive front. Starting left guard Jeff Allen had to leave in the first half of the Chiefs’ 34-20 win over the Oakland Raiders because of a lingering ankle injury, and starting center Mitch Morse did not play because of a concussion.
Starting left tackle Eric Fisher, who had head and neck injuries, played the entire game.
Munyer, 23, was signed to the Chiefs’ 53-man roster last week following Morse’s concussion. The Chiefs needed a backup for Zach Fulton, Morse’s replacement, and Munyer’s ability to play center gave him the edge, which is why he was active against the Raiders. He did not log any offensive snaps but did log one snap on special teams.
