Chiefs put TE O'Shaughnessy on IR, claim DT King off Seattle

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Chiefs have placed rookie tight end James O'Shaughnessy on injured reserve and claimed defensive tackle David King off waivers from the Seattle Seahawks.

The Chiefs announced the moves Tuesday.

O'Shaughnessy, their fifth-round pick this year, has missed Kansas City's past two games with a fractured foot. He caught six passes for 87 yards during his rookie season.

The Chiefs have used Demetrius Harris and Brian Parker in his place during wins over Detroit and Denver. They will continue to share duties alongside starting tight end Travis Kelce.

King was a seventh-round pick of the Philadelphia Eagles in 2013. He's played in seven games over the past two seasons with Seattle.
