Chiefs promote TE Jones, release WR Hall
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Kansas City Chiefs promoted tight end Dominique Jones to the 53-man roster and released wide receiver Chad Hall on Saturday.
Jones will take the place of Anthony Fasano, who’s been ruled out for Sunday’s game at Washington after sustaining a concussion in last week’s loss to Denver.
Jones, who will share time with Sean McGrath, played 10 games with three starts in two seasons with the Colts. He has spent part of this season on the Chiefs’ practice squad.
Hall rejoined the Chiefs on Nov. 22 after originally arriving off a September waiver claim.
The Chiefs also will miss outside linebacker Justin Houston (dislocated elbow) and left tackle Branden Albert (sprained knee) against the Redskins. Frank Zombo will start for Houston and Donald Stephenson will start in Albert’s place.
