HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Marcus Kemp is getting a shot to play on Sundays.

Kemp was promoted to the Kansas City Chiefs' 53-man roster Saturday from the practice squad, taking the place of receiver Chris Conley on the roster, who ruptured his achilles.

Conley, 24, has been placed on injured reserve and will miss the remainder of the 2017 season.

Kemp, 22, joined the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent this earlier this year.

The former University of Hawaii Rainbow Warrior was a training camp standout over the summer and performed well during the preseason, tallying six receptions for 56 yards and a touchdown.

Initially, it’s likely Kemp will serve as a depth receiver and special teams player but could find some time on the field on offense over the next few weeks.
