“Good chance he comes back,” Reid said.

That chance is now reality.

The Chiefs signed Munyer to the practice squad, a source familiar with the transaction on Wednesday evening informed ChiefsDigest.com and The Topeka Capital-Journal.

The 6-1, 305-pound Munyer, who was waived Tuesday, cleared waivers Wednesday afternoon.

Munyer first joined the Chiefs in May as an undrafted free agent out of Colorado. He spent organized team activies (OTAs), training camp and preseason with the team before being waived on Sept. 5.

The Chiefs signed him to the practice squad on Sept. 6 before waiving him on Oct. 13. Munyer re-signed with the practice squad on Nov. 30, and then elevated him to the active roster on Dec. 1.

He was active in Week 12, playing one special teams snap, before being waived Tuesday in favor of Jarrod Pughsley, who was elevated from the practice squad.

Pughsley’s transaction left a vacant spot on the practice squad, which Munyer now fills.
