Chiefs claim guard Marcus Reed off waivers

The Chiefs are now back at the offseason roster maximum of 90.

On Tuesday, just hours after they waived receiver Da’Rick Rogers and tackle Kelvin Palmer, they claimed guard Marcus Reed off waivers from Green Bay, according to the NFL’s transaction report.

Reed, who is listed at 6 feet 5 and 350 pounds, was signed by the Packers as an undrafted free agent in May. He was waived Monday.

Camp notes

▪ Quarterback Tyler Bray was in attendance Tuesday. Bray, who tore his ACL in January, was away from the team during organized team activities. He stood on the sidelines wearing a wrap on his left knee.

▪ Former Hawaii receiver Kealoha Pilares, cornerback Kenneth Penny (UNLV) and offensive guard Derek Dennis (Temple) participated in Tuesday’s practice on a tryout basis. Penny attended the Chiefs’ rookie camp in May.

Maclin addresses injury

Jeremy Maclin missed practice on June 9 because of what the team called foot inflammation, but returned to practice a day later.

On Tuesday, Maclin said he wasn’t sure how he originally irritated the foot.

“I don’t even know,” Maclin said. “I went through practice, and at the end of practice I felt sore a little bit. I had a day off there and felt great the following day.”
