The Chiefs designated linebacker Willie Gay to return from injured reserve.
The team placed Gay on the reserve list Sept. 2 as he worked his way back from turf toe. He was eligible to return to practice last week but apparently wasn’t ready.
The designation now opens a 21-day window for Gay to participate in practice before the Chiefs are required to make a decision on whether to activate him to the 53-player roster. They can activate him at any point in the next 21 days.
Gay, a second-round choice in 2020, had 39 tackles, a sack and a forced fumble while starting eight of the 16 regular-season games he played as a rookie. He did not play in the postseason.
