Third time might be charm for Hall

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Wide receiver Chad Hall had little to do during his first two tours with the Kansas Chiefs this season. As their sixth and last wide receiver, he was giving the Chiefs little, a fact they acknowledged by releasing him twice.

Things could change this time around for Hall, who rejoined the Chiefs Friday for the third time. Hall could wind up returning punts on Sunday against the Oakland Raiders instead of Dexter McCluster. McCluster did not practice on Thursday because of a sore ankle.

Hall could also get some of the snaps as the slot receiver that normally would have gone to McCluster. Junior Hemingway's playing time could also be increased if McCluster doesn't play against the Raiders.

To clear roster room for Hall, the Chiefs released defensive lineman Jerrell Powe.
