The Chiefs made a last-minute transaction on Saturday evening, swapping reserve wide receivers within the organization. Kansas City promoted rookie
Horne had played in three games this season, mainly on special teams.
Tucker joined the Chiefs a week into training camp following his release from Dallas in late July. A bigger receiver (6-1, 204), Tucker turned in seven catches for 45 yards this preseason to finish third on the team. He had been on the practice squad all season prior to his promotion.
Earlier this week, head coach Todd Haley declared Chambers healthy by removing the 10-year veteran from the club’s injury report. Tucker’s signing gives Kansas City some flexibility when inactives are announced on Sunday morning as Jacksonville ranks 28th against the pass, giving up an average of 263.7 yards per contest.
Horne will be practice squad eligible after he clears waivers.
