Former Rainbow Warrior Marcus Kemp Promoted to Chiefs Active Roster

Posted: Updated:

Former University of Hawaii wide receiver Marcus Kemp has been promoted to the Kansas City Chiefs active roster ahead of their playoff game on Saturday.

The former Rainbow Warrior was promoted from the practice squad after the Chiefs placed wideout De'Anthony Thomas on the team's IR list. Thomas suffered a lower leg injury last week against the Denver Broncos.

Kemp's role will likely will be limited to special teams barring multiple injuries at the position.

This is Kemp's second time being promoted to the active roster this season after he was brought up for a game against the Steelers in week 6. He registered eight offensive snaps and four special teams snaps in Kansas City's 19-13 loss. Kemp was released and signed back to the Chiefs’ practice squad after the game.

Kansas City hosts Hawaii's Marcus Mariota and the Tennessee Titans in Saturday's AFC Wild Card game. The game is set for 11:20 a.m. HT on ESPN/ABC.
