Sturdivant could also help out at linebacker for the Chiefs down the stretch.

The Kansas City Chiefs needed some help on special teams, so they went out and signed Quan Sturdivant on Thursday. Sturdivant had been playing for the Sacramento Mountain Lions of the United Football League.

"He was on Arizona’s practice squad last year, was in training camp with them earlier this year," Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel said after Thursday's practice. "So possibly he might be able to help us on special teams and at the linebacker spot. So that’s what we’ve done with the squad to this point."

Crennel said he wasn't sure if Sturdivant would be available this weekend. It all depended on how much of the gameplan the second-year player picked up before Sunday. Sturdivant was taken in the sixth round with the 171st pick in the 2011 NFL Draft by the Arizona Cardinals. He played his college football with the North Carolina Tar Heels.

The Chiefs need some help at the linebacking position. Starter Tamba Hall didn't practice for the second straight day as he continues to deal with a knee injury.
