Chiefs promote WR Josh Bellamy to active roster

Benny Sieu-US PRESSWIRE

The Kansas City Chiefs promoted wide receiver Josh Bellamy to the active roster prior to Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns.

Prior to Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns, the Kansas City Chiefs made a small change to their roster. According to the Kansas City Star's Adam Teicher, the team has elevated wide receiver Josh Bellamy up from the practice squad. Teicher says that Bellamy practiced as defensive back this week.

The corresponding roster move was to release offensive linemen Hayworth Hicks, who the team claimed off waivers on Nov. 29. Hicks was inactive for the one game he was with Kansas City, and entered the league as an undrafted free agent this past offseason. He also spent three games inactive on the New York Jets roster.

Bellamy joined the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent on April 30, and has been on the practice squad all season. He played college ball at Louisville, where he compiled 53 catches for 681 yards and seven touchdowns.

It's unclear if he'll be active against the Browns on Sunday. It's also unclear what the plans are for him, given his practice time at defensive back, but this is considered a low-level roster move, regardless.
