ST. JOSEPH, Mo. – The Chiefs on Sunday added two players to the injured list.

Wide receiver Junior Hemingway participated in a portion of practice before leaving with a back injury, according to a team spokesman.

The Chiefs will evaluate Hemingway and likely have an update Monday.

Undrafted rookie defensive end David Irving is also dealing with a back injury and did not participate in practice. Irving worked with trainers off to the side.

Linebacker James-Michael Johnson (calf), tight end Demetrius Harris (foot), wide receiver Chris Conley (knee), defensive tackle Dontari Poe (back) and quarterback Tyler Bray (knee) did not practice for a second straight day since the Chiefs began full team practices.

Johnson and Bray are on the non-football injured (NFI) list, while Harris and Poe are on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list.

Conley suffered his injury on the first day of rookie practices and hasn’t practiced since.
