KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Chiefs signed defensive tackle Jerel Worthy to the practice squad, according to Saturday’s NFL Transactions report.

The 6-2, 308-pound Worthy rejoins the organization four days after the Chiefs released him on Tuesday in favor of guard Jarrod Pughsley.

The Chiefs released offensive tackle Curtis Feigt to make room on the 10-man practice squad for Worthy.

Worthy and the 6-6, 310-pound Feigt originally signed with the Chiefs practice squad on Sept. 9.

Worthy entered the NFL out of Michigan State as a second-round pick (51st overall) of the Green Bay Packers in the 2012 NFL Draft.

The Packers traded him to the New England Patriots on Aug. 13 before New England released him on Aug. 30, leading to the Chiefs signing Worthy to the practice squad two weeks later.

The Chiefs’ 10-man practice squad currently consists of Worthy, wide receiver Armon Binns, tight end Brandon Barden, linebacker Darin Drakeford, guard Ricky Henry, cornerback Deji Olatoye, guard Jarrod Pughsley, safety Daniel Sorensen, running back Charcandrick West and wide receiver Fred Williams.
