KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Kansas City Chiefs added some offensive line depth by signing veteran tackle Jah Reid, who was recently released by the Baltimore Ravens.
Reid started seven games in his four seasons with the Ravens.
The Chiefs will probably be short at tackle, at least until Jeff Allen returns after spraining his knee early in the preseason. The Chiefs were pessimistic Allen would be available for Sunday's season opener at the Houston Texans.
That would leave the Chiefs with only starters Eric Fisher and Donald Stephenson as true tackles. Guard Paul Fanaika played some at tackle during the preseason but struggled at times.
The Chiefs have nine offensive linemen. Ben Grubbs and Laurent Duvernay-Tardif are the likely starters at guard and rookie Mitch Morse will start at center.
The other reserve is Zach Fulton.
