The Chiefs made a pair of minor roster moves Tuesday as they added guard Jarrod Pughsley to the practice squad and released defensive tackle Jerel Worthy.

Pughsley, whose nickname is “Pugs,” is listed at 6 feet 4 and 308 pounds, was signed by the Dallas Cowboys in May as an undrafted free agent out of Akron, where he was a two-year starter at tackle.

The Chiefs signed Worthy, a second-round pick of the Green Bay Packers in 2012, back in early September. He lasted two seasons with the Packers, logging 15 tackles in 16 games, before he was traded to the Patriots in August. The Patriots released him shortly before the season.

Here's Pughley's highlight video from his senior year, where he played left tackle.
