KANSAS CITY, Mo. – A rotation on the practice squad at the wide receiver position occurred Saturday.

The Chiefs signed rookie wide receiver Kenny Cook to the 10-man practice squad and terminated the contract of wide receiver Fred Williams, according to Saturday’s NFL Transaction report.

The 6-4, 218-pound Cook originally joined the Chiefs on May 11 as an undrafted free agent out of Gardner-Webb.

Cook spent organized teams activities, minicamp and training camp with the team before being waived on Aug. 30 as part of the roster moves to reach a 75-man roster.

Saturday’s transactions mark the third time in October a roster move on the practice squad involved Cook and Williams.

The Chiefs signed Cook and released Williams, who led the Chiefs during the preseason with 15 catches for 167 yards and three touchdowns, on Oct. 1.

A little more than two weeks later, the Chiefs terminated Cook’s contract and signed Williams on Oct. 19.
