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.
McGuire has signed a one-year deal with the Chiefs, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports. The 26-year-old, who has spent time on the team's practice squad over the past two seasons, will provide Kansas City with backfield depth behind Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Darrel Williams and Darwin Thompson. McGuire, a sixth-round draft pick in 2017, last saw regular season action with the Jets in 2018.
McGuire will sign with the Chiefs' practice squad Tuesday, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports. The Chiefs are making the move after rookie Clyde Edwards-Helaire suffered a high-ankle sprain and a strained hip in last week's win over the Saints. McGuire will add organizational depth in the backfield behind Le'Veon Bell, Darrel Williams and Darwin Thompson (illness). The fourth-year tailback hasn't suited up since 2018 when he rushed 92 times for 276 yards and three touchdowns and caught 19 receptions for 193 yards and a score.
