Chiefs' Rakeem Nunez-Roches: Signed to active roster
Nunez-Roches was promoted to the active roster on Tuesday.
Nunez-Roches spent the first part of the season on the Chiefs practice squad after being selected in the sixth round of the 2015 draft. Allen Bailey (shoulder) was moved to injured reserve, paving the way for 23-year-old's call up. The defensive end has a chance to earn a starting opportunity due to Bailey's injury, but Chris Jones is likely to take over as starter until Nunez-Roches gets acclimated.
