Kemp earned a promotion to the 53-man roster in October of last season, his rookie year, which likely earned him good favor in his bid for a 53-man roster spot. He should serve as a depth option at wide receiver again in 2018 and could contribute on special teams as well.
Kemp was not wearing pads as players began warming up and headed straight for the trainer's tent. The 22-year-old had previously been dealing with an ankle injury but the specifics and severity of this injury are currently unknown.
Kemp was added from the practice squad to the 53-man roster Tuesday, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.
Kemp will provide the Chiefs with some depth at the wide receiver position during the postseason following the news that De'Anthony Thomas (lower leg) has hit injured reserve. However, his role likely will be limited to special teams barring multiple injuries at the position.
