Chiefs’ Reid takes over kicking duties after Butker injury
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Kansas City Chiefs safety Justin Reid has added kicking duties to his resume.
Reid was called into action after kicker Harrison Butker rolled his left ankle on a kickoff in the first quarter Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals.
Butker was taken off the field on a cart, but later returned to the sideline.
Reid made his first extra point attempt, but missed his second after the Chiefs took a 20-6 lead in the second quarter. He also boomed two kickoffs for touchbacks.
The Chiefs experimented with Reid at kicker during camp and he made an extra point in a preseason game.
