Chad Ochocinco will play in Sporting KC reserve game

Chad Ochocinco’s tryout with Sporting Kansas City won’t be over this weekend, after all.

The Cincinnati Bengals receiver, whose four-day trial with the team was scheduled to come to an end Saturday, will compete in the team’s reserve game Monday. A club spokesman said the decision was made this morning, when Vermes and Ochocinco met to determine his immediate future with the club.

Ochocinco showed improvement Thursday after struggling Wednesday, his first day with the club. He will practice with the reserve team this weekend at Swope Park while most of his teammates are in Chicago for Sporting KC’s game against the Fire, which starts at 3 p.m. Saturday.
