Chiefs elevate Sorensen for depth, release Square

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Chiefs have elevated defensive back Daniel Sorensen to the 53-man roster and released defensive end Damion Square ahead of Sunday's game against the New York Jets.

Sorensen, who signed with the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent, played in the season opener against Tennessee on Sept. 7 before getting released. He signed with their practice squad four days later and has been working out with the Chiefs ever since.

Kansas City was in need of depth after ruling out cornerbacks Jamell Fleming with a hamstring injury and Chris Owens with a knee injury for Sunday's game.

Square was claimed by the Chiefs from Philadelphia on Aug. 31. He played in 10 games for the Eagles last season but had not played for the Chiefs.
