KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Chiefs signed rookie center Daniel Munyer to the practice squad, according to Monday’s NFL Transactions report.

The 6-1, 305-pound Munyer has familiarity with the offense after spending the entire offseason and training camp with the Chiefs. He also spent time the first five weeks of the regular season on the practice squad before being waived on Oct. 13.

Munyer, a native of Los Angeles, originally signed with the Chiefs in May as an undrafted free agent out of Colorado.

The Chiefs had an available spot on the practice squad after elevating wide receiver Frankie Hammond Jr., to the active 53-man roster on Saturday.

Munyer’s return also gives the Chiefs options from the practice squad in the event a move is necessary to bolster depth on the active roster.

The Chiefs dealt with injuries along the offensive line during Sunday’s game against the Buffalo Bills.

Starting left tackle Eric Fisher sustained a neck injury and starting rookie center Mitch Morse suffered a concussion, and both players did not finish the contest.

Left guard Jeff Allen suffered an ankle injury, but was able to finish the game.
