After placing Safety Lyle West on the injured list earlier today, the Chiefs made two roster moves adding a a safety and a wide receiver.
First the Chiefs moved Safety Clint Finley from the practice squad to the 53 man roster. With the promotion, Finley agreed to a new three year contract. No terms were disclosed.
Finley played in one game for the Chiefs the last two seasons. His only appearance on the active roster was against the Raiders in Oakland that closed out the 2002 season. Finley started the season with the Chiefs on the active roster but was released after the home opener. The Chiefs quickly resigned him to the practice squad.
Kansas City also promoted wide receiver LaShaun Ward to the active roster from the practice squad. He agreed to a two year deal and the Chiefs who are looking for special teams help and Ward fits the bill. Ward has spent the entire season on the practice squad. Ward turned some heads in training camp and the Chiefs were fortunate to keep him. The former California Bear standout was an undrafted free agent. The Chiefs outbid several clubs for Ward who was a hot commodity after the draft last April.
