Chiefs Place RB Akeem Hunt On Reserve/PUP List After Clearing Waivers

The Kansas City Chiefs officially placed RB Akeem Hunt on the reserve/physically unable to perform list on Wednesday after he passed through waivers unclaimed.

Hunt, 25, 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 Hunt to their practice squad in November of 2015 and he was on and off of their roster the past few years. The Chiefs signed him to their practice squad and eventually called him up a few weeks into the regular season last year before eventually placing him on injured reserve.

The Chiefs waived Hunt with a failed physical designation on Tuesday.

In 2017, Hunt appeared in 15 games for the Chiefs and rushed for 23 yards on eight carries (2.9 YPC) to go along with four receptions for 31 yards receiving and no touchdowns. He also contributed 611 kick return yards.
