McGuire was cut from the Chiefs' practice squad Wednesday, Pete Sweeney of ArrowheadPride.com reports. The running back joined the Chiefs' practice unit in October but failed to crack the active roster before being cut Wednesday. McGuire has not appeared in an NFL game since 2018 and will look to find another practice squad opportunity ahead of the 2022 season.
The Chiefs signed McGuire to their practice squad Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. McGuire will provide depth to the Chiefs' running back group after Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle) was placed on injured reserve. The 27-year-old has spent time on Kansas City's practice squad the last two seasons, so he should have some familiarity with the system.
Kansas City released McGuire (ankle) from injured reserve with an injury settlement Thursday, independent NFL journalist Aaron Wilson reports. McGuire was injured during the Chiefs' first preseason contest against the 49ers. The 26-year-old has spent time on Kansas City's practice squad the last two seasons and was vying for a depth spot on the final roster this year. The 2017 sixth-round pick will be free to sign with another team once the terms of his settlement are fulfilled.
McGuire (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday McGuire picked up the injury during Saturday's preseason matchup with the 49ers, and he was unable to practice Monday before moving to injured reserve. He won't be able to see the field this season unless he reaches an injury settlement with the Chiefs and is able to sign a new deal.
McGuire (ankle) is not practicing Monday, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports. McGuire took his only carry for three yards during Saturday's preseason game against the 49ers, but it appears that he may have dinged up his ankle in the process. The 27-year-old is competing for a depth spot in Kansas City's backfield, and missing practice time could hurt his chances of sticking on the regular-season roster.
