This officially opens a three-week window of time for the Chiefs to add him to their active roster or he would revert back to injured reserve.
Duvernay-Tardif suffered a fractured fibula during the team’s 30-14 win over the Jaguars back in October.

Duvernay-Tardif stands to make base salaries of $3.31 million and $6.203 million over the next two years of the agreement.
In 2018, Duvernay-Tardif has appeared in five games for the Chiefs.
