KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Chiefs continue to bolster depth on the offensive line.
Kansas City signed offensive tackle Reid Fragel to the 10-man practice squad, a source familiar with the transaction confirmed Wednesday morning with ChiefsDigest.com and The Topeka Capital-Journal.
The source spoke on the condition of anonymity because the Chiefs have not announced the signing.
The 6-8, 308-pound Fragel entered the league in 2013 out of Ohio State as a seventh-round pick of the Cincinnati Bengals. He recently spent time on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers practice squad.
Adding depth to the offensive line has been on the Chiefs’ radar in the wake of Week 12’s injuries to left tackle Eric Fisher (neck) and rookie center Mitch Morse (concussion). Guard Ben Grubbs has missed four straight games with a neck injury.
The Chiefs added rookie center Daniel Munyer to the practice squad Monday, and that placed the team at the maximum allowed on the practice squad.
Fragel’s presence signals a roster move is needed to accommodate the transaction.
