The Kansas City Chiefs signed defensive tackle Jerrell Powe and released wide receiver/returner Chad Hall, the team announced Thursday.
Powe (6-2, 331) rejoins the Chiefs after being released by the club on Dec. 13. He originally joined the Chiefs as the club's sixth-round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft. He was released prior to the start of the 2013 season and then rejoined the club on Dec. 3.
Hall has played in 24 games (one start) in over two seasons with the Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles. Hall originally came to Kansas City on Sept. 1, via waiver claim from the San Francisco 49ers. He has played in nine games with the Chiefs, recording two catches for 20 yards. Hall's career numbers include 16 receptions for 155 yards with two touchdowns. He has returned 10 punts for 107 yards and six kickoffs for 108 yards.
The Chiefs had signed Hall a week ago when wide receiver Dexter McCluster had an ankle problem.
McCluster was limited in Wednesday's practice, and is apparently sufficiently healed from the laceration on his ankle.
The Chiefs announced last Saturday that McCluster did not have MRSA, but he was ruled out of Sunday's game at the Oakland Raiders.
McCluster has 46 receptions for 438 yards with a touchdown. He has also returned two punts for touchdowns.
