KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Chiefs alternated players at the wide receiver position on the practice squad for another week.

Just four days after re-signing rookie wide receiver Kenny Cook to the 10-man practice squad in favor of wide receiver Fred Williams, the Chiefs reversed course Wednesday and signed Williams while letting Cook go, according to Wednesday’s NFL Transaction report.

This marks the fourth time in less than a month the Chiefs made moves on the practice squad involving both players.

The last transaction occurred Oct. 24, before that was Oct. 19 when the Chiefs signed Williams and released Cook and the first came on Oct. 1 when Cook signed and Williams was let go.

The 6-0, 190-pound Williams, who led the Chiefs during the preseason with 15 catches for 167 yards and three touchdowns, played collegiately at St. Cloud State and originally joined the Chiefs practice squad in 2013.

He spent the 2014 season on the practice squad, and signed with the Chiefs practice squad for a third tour a day after the final roster cuts to reach the initial 53-man roster before the Oct. 1 transaction.

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 Chiefs before being waived on Aug. 30.
