Chiefs sign veteran WR Avant, put Jenkins on IR

Sports

November 21st, 2014 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – The Chiefs have signed veteran Jason Avant to help a beleaguered and injury-prone group of wide receivers. The move reunites Avant with Andy Reid, his longtime coach in Philadelphia. Kansas City cleared roster space by placing wide receiver A.J. Jenkins on injured reserve on Friday.

Avant was drafted by Reid’s Eagles and spent his first eight seasons there before signing with Carolina in the offseason. He was the Panthers’ third receiver and caught 21 passes for 201 yards and a touchdown before getting released this week.

Avant had criticized the Panthers for their offensive approach in last week’s loss to the Falcons, but coach Ron Rivera insisted that was not the reason for his release. Rivera said the Panthers were simply trying to get younger at wide receiver.

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) — Josh Mackey scored on two short runs and North Fayette Valley controlled the ball with its ground game in beating Sioux Center 14-10 to win the Class 2A state championship. Mackey’s 2-yard plunge with 6:03 left Friday gave the Tigerhawks (13-1) their first lead, and he helped his team maintain it with a late play on defense.

Dropping back from his linebacker position, Mackey broke up a Sioux Center pass just outside the end zone. Teammate Phil Kleve then knocked down a final pass by the Warriors (12-2) at the goal line with just over a minute remaining.

Mackey was a workhorse all afternoon, carrying the ball 39 times for 140 yards in helping North Fayette Valley build a 12-minute edge in time of possession.
