Joins KC's practice squad

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-30

The Chiefs added Powell (hamstring) to their practice squad Wednesday.

Powell was nursing a hamstring injury prior to getting waived during final roster cuts, so his subsequent addition to Kansas City's practice squad indicates he has put the issue behind him. The 25-year-old has spent his first two seasons bouncing back and forth between the Chiefs' practice and active rosters, and is looking at a similar scenario in 2023.

Dropped by the Chiefs

Powell was waived without any injury designation by Kansas City on Tuesday.

Powell tweaked his hamstring during the Chiefs' 33-32 preseason victory versus the Browns on Aug. 26, but he was not tagged with any injury designation when Kansas City cut him loose Tuesday. The 2021 fifth-round pick spent most of last season on the Chiefs' practice squad, and he received a reserve/future contract in January after being elevated for three games in 2022. Should he clear waivers, Powell could be a prime candidate to rejoin the team's practice squad ahead of the 2023 campaign.

Tweaks hamstring in win

Powell, who caught two of three targets for 20 yards in Saturday's 33-32 preseason win over the Browns, is dealing with a hamstring injury, Pete Sweeney of SB Nation reports.

Head coach Andy Reid noted after the game that Powell was dealing with "a little bit" of a hamstring issue and is confident that the injury is not serious. Powell played in all three preseason games and accrued six catches for 63 yards and a touchdown.

Gets new deal with Chiefs

Kansas City signed Powell (undisclosed) to a reserve/future contract Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

Powell landed on the practice squad injured list in early January and subsequently sat out the Chiefs' postseason run. The nature of Powell's injury wasn't ultimately disclosed, but this offseason he will get a chance to compete for a role on the 53-man roster for 2023.

Placed on injured list

The Chiefs placed Powell (undisclosed) on the practice squad injured list Monday, Matt Derrick of reports.

It's unclear exactly what injury Powell is dealing with, but he'll now be ineligible to play for at least the Chiefs' next four games. As a result, his earliest possible chance to return would come if the team makes it to the Super Bowl on Sunday, Feb. 12. However, it the Chiefs secure the No. 1 seed in the AFC and a subsequent first-round bye in the playoffs, then Powell will not be able to return before the end of the season. The second-year wideout has not recorded a target over three appearances this season.
