The Kansas City Chiefs had to place rookie cornerback Trent McDuffie on the injured reserve this Tuesday afternoon. On the bright side, that opens up a roster spot for the AFC West franchise. The Chiefs are reportedly using that roster spot on a veteran wide receiver.
The Chiefs are signing veteran wide receiver Corey Coleman to replace McDuffie on the active roster. Coleman, 28, was the No. 15 pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. He has 61 catches for 789 yards and five touchdowns in his professional football career.
Coleman joins a wide receivers unit in Kansas City that features JuJu Smith-Schuster, Mecole Hardman, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Skyy Moore, Justin Watson and Justynn Ross. A talented group of wideouts for the Chiefs.
"The #Chiefs have placed first-round rookie CB Trent McDuffie on IR, so he'll miss at least the next four games. They also signed veteran WR Corey Coleman to the practice squad," said Ari Meirov.
It will be cool to track Corey Coleman's progress in Kansas City. Hopefully he gets things figured out.
The Chiefs, meanwhile, began the 2022 season with a statement win over Arizona on Sunday. They now have to quickly turn their attention to Justin Herbert and the Los Angeles Chargers.
