Seals-Jones has been promoted from Kansas City's practice squad to the team's active roster. With Deon Yelder (groin) now on IR as Sunday's playoff game against the Browns approaches, Seals-Jones will serve as the team's No. 3 tight end behind Travis Kelce and Nick Keizer.
Seals-Jones was signed to the Chiefs' practice squad Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. The Chiefs have now signed Seals-Jones to the practice squad once again, but it is unlikely the tight end will see active status. Through his two games this season, the 25-year-old has played just six offensive snaps and five special teams snaps.
Seals-Jones was released by the Chiefs on Saturday. Seals-Jones logged four offensive snaps in Week 16 against the Falcons, but he'd been inactive since Week 6 prior to that instance. The Chiefs promoted Gehrig Dieter to their active roster upon waiving Seals-Jones.
Seals-Jones (coach's decision) is inactive for Monday's game against the Ravens, Matt McMullen of the Chiefs' official site reports. Seals-Jones is a healthy scratch for the second straight game after not playing a single snap during the season opener. Nick Keizer and Deon Yelder will be the depth options at tight end behind All-Pro Travis Kelce for Kansas City.
Seals-Jones (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 2 tilt against the Chargers, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports. The veteran tight end has some name value from his past NFL exploits, but on a Chiefs team that features Travis Kelce at the top of the positional depth chart, Seals-Jones may have an uphill battle for active status on some weeks. Seals-Jones did not see the field Week 1 against the Texans either, as he appears to have been usurped for the backup role to Kelce by undrafted rookie Nick Keizer at the moment.
