The Chiefs released center Tommie Draheim and tackle Matt Reynolds from the practice squad Tuesday and added two players.

The 6-foot-4, 309-pound Draheim, an undrafted free agent from San Diego State, was signed by the Chiefs in April after stints with the Seahawks, Packers, Patriots and Jaguars. Reynolds, 6-4 and 310, joined the Chiefs after coming into the league as an undrafted free agent with Carolina in 2012.

The release of Draheim cleared a spot for offensive lineman Rokevious Watkins, who was activated Monday after serving a one-game suspension for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy during the Chiefs’ 28-2 win over Jacksonville.

Watkins, 24, is listed at 6 feet 3 and 338 pounds and was drafted by the Rams in the fifth round in 2012 and signed by the Chiefs in August. Before his release, Watkins had been the Rams' backup right guard in offseason workouts.

Reynolds is replaced on the practice squad by defensive tackle Jordan Miller, 6-1 and 316, who was an undrafted free agent by the Bears and played for the Packers last season.
