With Tyreek Hill out, the Chiefs need another receiver. They got one by bringing Byron Pringle back to the active roster.

Pringle has gone from making the 53-man roster to playing in the Week One win over the Jaguars (three snaps) to released by the Chiefs to signed to the practice squad to now re-elevated to the active roster.

To make room for Pringle, the Chiefs released defensive back Tremon Smith. A sixth-round pick of the Chiefs in 2018, he was drafted as a cornerback, moved to running back in the 2019 offseason, moved back to cornerback, and now moved off the roster.

Smith also returned 33 kickoffs as a rookie, averaging 26.8 yards per return. He had been the team’s primary kickoff returner to start the 2019 season. They’ll now need to designate another one before Sunday’s game at Oakland.
