Demetrius Harris Returns to the Chiefs After Suspension

The Chiefs brought back TE Demetrius Harris from the suspension list and waived Ike Boettger.

On Tuesday the Chiefs brought back TE Demetrius Harris from his one week suspension for breaking the NFL's substance abuse policy. With the return of Harris the Chiefs had to waive Ike Boettger who was claimed on waivers from the Buffalo Bills. Harris returns after missing the Chiefs win against the Los Angeles Chargers and brings another weapon to this potent Chiefs offense.

Harris will return to play the 2 TE role behind Travis Kelce and should open up a couple more formations that the Chiefs couldn't use on Sunday. With double TE sets or even three TE's the Chiefs have been very effective over the past couple of seasons. Don't expect Harris to get many targets as there is already an issue of how many targets can be spread among the offense.

Harris is much more of a pass catching TE than a blocker but he is a core special teamer as well and can help on both return units and coverage. Alex Ellis did not see a target in Harris' absence on Sunday and could potentially find himself inactive depending on who the Chiefs will play each week. With the Steelers on deck this week look for the Chiefs to get Harris involved again in the passing game at times.
