The Kansas City Chiefs officially designated LB Justin March-Lillard as their player to return from injured reserve on Wednesday.
This officially opens a three-week window for the Chiefs to add him to their active roster.
March-Lillard, 23, wound up signing a three-year, $1.585 million contract with the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent out of Akron back in May of last year. He has managed to make the 53-man roster in each of his first two years in the NFL.
He stands to make base salaries of $525,000 and $615,000 over the remainder of the contract.
In 2016, March-Lillard has appeared in five games and recorded 22 tackles, no sacks, and two pass defenses for the Chiefs before he was placed on injured reserve.
