Aaron Wilson reports that the Chiefs are signing former Texans RB Akeem Hunt to their practice squad on Tuesday.
The Chiefs’ practice squad now consists of:
- TE Orson Charles (Exception)
- OL Joseph Cheek
- WR Gehrig Dieter
- WR Marcus Kemp
- G Damien Mama
- S Leon McQuay
- RB Devine Redding
- LB Marcus Rush
- OT Isaiah Williams
- RB Akeem Hunt
Hunt, 24, originally signed on with the Giants as an undrafted free agent out of Purdue back in May. However, he was unfortunately among their early roster cuts. The Ravens later signed him to their practice squad, but he lasted just a week in Baltimore.
The Texans signed him to their practice squad in November of 2015 before calling him up soon after. Houston elected to waive Hunt coming out of the preseason but he was once again added to their practice squad and was eventually called up to the active roster.
The Texans cut Hunt loose this past weekend as they trimmed their roster down to 53 players.
In 2016, Hunt appeared in eight games for the Texans and ran for 109 yards on 20 carries (5.5 YPC) to go along with three receptions for 29 yards receiving and no touchdowns. He also recorded 194 yards as a kickoff returner.
