The Chiefs will have tight end Jody Fortson available on Sunday.

The team announced that Fortson has been activated from injured reserve on Saturday. Fortson has missed the last four games with an elbow injury and he had nine catches for 108 yards and two touchdowns during the regular season.

Fortson will take the roster spot that the Chiefs opened by waiving cornerback Chris Lammons earlier this week.

The Chiefs also elevated wide receivers Marcus Kemp and Ihmir Smith-Marsette from the practice squad.

Wide receivers Mecole Hardman and Justin Watson were both listed as questionable on Friday, so the call-ups provide them with depth in the event those two are inactive on Sunday.

  1. Extra blocker for the running game. Mahomes is just as injured as everyone thought.

  2. Check the Chiefs kickoff team, 3rd from the left, Lammons old spot. Betcha Kemp is on kickoff tomorrow.

  3. He is nothinfg but an insurance policy in the event Kelce’s back spasms start up. Funny how he was activated the day after Kelce went down. The Chiefs are playing fast and loose with the injury report and this should be looked into closer. Mahomes and Kelce are both injured worse than they are leading on.
