Dexter McCluster popped up on the injury report with an ankle injury on Thursday after practicing in full on Wednesday, raising the possibility that the Chiefs would have to play without their punt returner and frequent Alex Smith target against the Raiders this weekend.

Kansas City made a move Monday to give themselves an option at receiver in the event McCluster can’t play. The team announced that they have re-signed wide receiver Chad Hall.

Hall was claimed off waivers from the 49ers in September and played in eight games with the Chiefs before getting released to make room for wide receiver Kyle Williams. Williams has subsequently landed on injured reserve with a torn ACL, opening the door for Hall’s return. Hall caught one pass in those eight games, so he’s not likely to step right into McCluster’s role. He’s also returned punts in the past, although there’s no word on whether he’d do so this weekend.

The Chiefs released defensive tackle Jerrell Powe.

    Chad Hall is to Andy Reid what Michael Martinez is to Ruban Amaro Jr.

    The Chiefs are a freakin joke…we will tear them into shreds Sunday.

    3 rings baby and Kings of the AFC west, decade upon decade…yeah that’s right “BBQ sauce face” – The Raiders have accomplished more than any other team in our division. Hell, we are the only one of our teams in the AFC west to go to the SB this century – We of course still have 3 rings and are truly the team of the decades!!!!

    don’t we just piss you off? Your women love us though, because real men wear black!!!

    LOL!!

    Late…

    LMAO!! raidermick3sb3rings is a typical Raiders fan calls names like a 8 year old and is completely delusional on how good his team is. Go back to swilling your beer, throwing batteries when you lose and awkwardly hitting on women who do everything they can to get away from you. Fat men wear black.

    Doesn’t the truth just piss you off ?!?!?

    Chad Hall, class act who is one of the few Air Force grads to get a shot in the NFL. Lit up the NCAA in rushing. Glad to see him get another shot.
