Former Rainbow Warrior wide receiver Marcus Kemp has been promoted to the Kansas City Chiefs active roster as they prepare for their playoff push.
The former Warrior was promoted from the practice squad after the Chiefs placed wideout De’Anthony Thomas on the team's IR list after suffering a lower leg injury last week against the Denver Broncos.

This is Kemp’s second time being promoted to the active roster this season after he was brought up for a game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, playing eight offensive snaps and four special teams snaps.
Kemp’s role will most likely to be limited to special teams, but fellow Chiefs receiver Albert Wilson did not participate in Tuesday’s and today's practice, so the former Warrior’s role could expand come gametime.
The Chiefs take on Marcus Mariota and the Tennessee Titans in the Wild Card this Saturday, Jan. 6. Kick-off is set for 11:35 a.m. HT.
