KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Chiefs tweaked the offensive line for a second straight week.

Kansas City elevated offensive lineman Jarrod Pughsley from the practice squad to the active 53-man roster, a source familiar with the transaction confirmed Tuesday.

Terez Paylor of The Kansas City Star reported the news on Pughsley first.

In an apparent corresponding move, the Chiefs waived rookie center Daniel Munyer, a source on Tuesday afternoon informed ChiefsDigest.com and The Topeka Capital-Journal.

The sources for the transactions surrounding Pughsley and Munyer spoke on the condition of anonymity because the Chiefs have not announced the moves.

The 6-4, 310-Pughsley, who played collegiately at Akron, offers depth and versatility to play tackle and guard.

Pughsley emerged during training camp and has been on the practice squad since the start of the season. He was also on the Chiefs practice squad in 2014.

The 6-1, 305-pound Munyer, who was elevated from the practice squad in Week 13, spent time with the Chiefs throughout organized team activities and training camp. The Chiefs first waived him on Oct. 13 before bringing him back on Nov. 30.

With starting rookie center Mitch Morse out with a concussion in Week 13, Munyer was active against the Oakland Raiders and recorded one snap on special teams.

Munyer is a prime candidate to re-sign with the Chiefs practice squad provided he clears waivers.
