Kansas City Chiefs bring up Jamar Newsome from practice squad

Jeff Curry-US PRESSWIRE

The Chiefs also released offensive lineman Rich Ranglin.

The Kansas City Chiefs made a few roster moves on Saturday as they prepare for Sunday's game against their AFC West rivals, the Denver Broncos, with the addition of wide receiver Jamar Newsome to the active roster from the practice squad and the release of offensive lineman Rich Ranglin.

The Chiefs have been a bit thin at wide receiver the last couple of weeks with minor injuries to Dwayne Bowe and Jon Baldwin. However, both players are expected to play for the Chiefs today, so this move is mostly about special teams play.

Newsome played in two games last season for the Jacksonville Jaguars and has also been with the Pittsburgh Steelers on the team's practice squad. He came to the Chiefs practice squad in December of 2011.

Newsome is a former Central Florida receiver with 986 total receiving yards in 3 seasons. He also has some slight kick return experience in his senior season.

To make room for him, the Chiefs have once again release Rich Ranglin in a move intended to open up a slot for Sundays. The team will likely bring him back during the week for practice purposes.
