The Chiefs signed Washington from their practice squad to the active roster Wednesday, Mat McMullen of the team's official site reports.
Washington was elevated from the practice squad ahead of last week's win against the Bears to serve as the team's returner and impressed enough to get a permanent spot on the roster. With Richie James (knee) on injured reserve, the 24-year-old will likely continue to serve as the primary returner for the near future.

Washington reverted to the Chiefs' practice squad Monday.
Washington was elevated for the first time this season ahead of Sunday's 41-10 win over the Bears. The wide receiver operated exclusively as a special-teams option, returning three punts for 33 yards. With Richie James (knee) on injured reserve, Washington is a good bet to continue operating as the team's primary returner for the time being.
The Chiefs elevated Washington from their practice squad to the active roster Saturday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.
A fifth-round pick of the Broncos in 2022, Washington was cut by the team during roster cut downs in late August. Shortly thereafter, Kansas City signed him to its practice squad, but now that Richie James (knee) has landed on IR, Washington has been brought up to the active roster, likely to serve as the Chiefs' primary returner Sunday against the Bears. Washington averaged 8.5 yards on 32 punt returns and 18.9 yards on 18 kick returns in 15 games last season.
Washington signed with the Chiefs' practice squad Thursday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.
Washington was waived by the Broncos on Tuesday and he will now head to Kansas City. The wide receiver was selected in the fifth round of the 2022 NFL Draft by Denver and he appeared in 15 games in his rookie campaign, reeling in four catches for two yards while turning five carries into 30 yards on the ground. Most notably, Washington also combined to record 611 yards as both a kick and punt returner last year.
The Broncos waived Washington on Tuesday, Chris Tomasson of The Denver Gazette reports.
Washington, a 2022 fifth-round pick, could realistically resurface on Denver's practice squad as long as he clears waivers. In 15 appearances as a rookie he secured four of nine targets for two yards and logged five carries for 30 yards. With Tim Patrick (knee) out for the year and Jerry Jeudy (hamstring) in danger of missing serious time, emergency wide receiver depth will be significant for the Broncos.
Washington caught four of nine targets for two yards in 15 games this season. He also rushed five times for 30 yards.
Washington finished his rookie campaign with minimal production despite playing in all but two games. The 23-year-old wideout saw limited playing time throughout the season as he remained buried on the depth chart. Heading into the 2023 season, Washington will look to make an impression on Denver's new coaching staff. However, the 5-foot-10, 170-pound receiver will likely face another uphill battle for playing time with fellow wideouts Jerry Jeudy, Courtland Sutton, Tim Patrick (knee) and KJ Hamler (hamstring) all under contract for next season. As Washington continues to develop, he will likely operate in a depth role going forward.
