KANSAS CITY, Mo. – A week after being claimed off waivers from the San Francisco 49ers, wide receiver Kyle Williams’ season is over with a torn ACL.
The Chiefs on Friday placed Williams on injured reserve and brought back wide receiver Chad Hall, who was released last week to make room for Williams.
Williams’ injury is a setback for the Chiefs, as offensive coordinator Doug Pederson said Thursday the team planned to start incorporating him into the offense.
“I want to give him a few reps, a few plays this week and get him into the ball game, see how he handles the information and the volume of the information, especially during the game,” Pederson said. “So we’re excited to see him in action.”
Williams originally tweeted his injury before the team announced it:
Saddened to say the I will be missing the remainder of the season due to another tear of my ACL…

Meanwhile, Hall’s return makes sense given his familiarity with the offense.
For the season, Hall was inactive for the team’s first two regular season games. He was active for seven straight weeks before his release prior to last week’s contest against the Denver Broncos.
He has one catch for 9 yards on the year.
