Kansas City Chiefs try out five defenders


After watching starting outside linebackers Justin Houston and Tamba Hali suffer injuries during the team’s Week 12 loss, the Kansas City Chiefs have been left with a wounded defense that could benefit from some added depth.

As they search for a way to bolster their depth, the team has decided to work out five defenders.

According to Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post, the Chiefs have worked out former Washington Redskins defensive end Hall Davis, defensive tackle Chas Alecxih, defensive tackle DaJohn Harris, linebacker Delano Johnson and defensive tackle Martin Parker.

Wilson says that none of the players were immediately signed to a contract.

There is a chance that Hali could return to the line up for Week 13 against the Denver Broncos, but the diagnosis was not as positive for Houston’s elbow. Houston is expected to miss two to three weeks with ligament and muscle damage, though he was able to avoid surgery.

The Chiefs have lost two games in a row, so they hope to find a way to bounce back in a big way.
