KANSAS CITY, Mo, — The Chiefs have added some more depth to their running back room on Monday.
According to NFL Network insider Tom Pelissero and also the Associated Press, the Chiefs have signed former Denver Broncos running back Melvin Gordon to the practice squad.
Gordon was waived by the Broncos last Monday due to ball security issues. On the season, he has 90 carries for 318 yards, 2 touchdowns and five fumbles.
He is also a former two-time Pro-Bowler and is familiar with the AFC West, having also played five seasons with the Los Angeles Chargers.
This move gives the Chiefs another running back while Clyde Edwards-Helaire is on injured reserve after suffering a high-ankle sprain against the Chargers in Week 11.
The Chiefs still have to play the Broncos twice in Week 14 and Week 17.
They also signed former Raiders and Falcons receiver Bryan Edwards. Edwards was waived by the Falcons last week. He has 3 receptions for 15 yards on the season.
