The move likely clears space for Chiefs WR De’Anthony Thomas, who returns from a one-game suspension this week.
Pringle, 25, signed with the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent out of Kansas State in 2018. He ended up spending his first year on the Chiefs’ injured reserve list.
Pringle made the Chiefs 53-man roster this year in his second season. He could be a candidate for the practice squad.
During his two-year college career, Pringle caught 69 passes for 1,355 yards (19.6 YPC) and 10 touchdowns.
