Chiefs Place G Kelechi Osemele On IR To Make Room For RB Le’Veon Bell


The Kansas City Chiefs announced Saturday that they’ve placed G Kelechi Osemele on injured reserve and officially signed RB Le’Veon Bell.

Osemele suffered tears to tendons in both of his knees in a non-contact situation during last week’s game, so this move was expected. 

We wish Osemele well in his return from these injuries. 

Osemele, 31, is a former second-round pick of the Ravens back in 2012. He played out his rookie contract with the team before signing a five year, $58.5 million contract with the Raiders back in 2016.

The Raiders traded Osemele to the Jets for a fifth-round pick, but he was later released and sat out the remainder of the season. He signed a one-year deal with the Chiefs that was worth up to $2 million prior to the start of the 2020 season.

In 2020, Osemele appeared in and started in five games for the Chiefs.
