TE move could mean Fasano won't play

December, 18, 2013
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Kansas City Chiefs wouldn't need another tight end for Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts at Arrowhead Stadium if they believed their starter, Anthony Fasano, would be available to play.

But the Chiefs signed tight end Richard Gordon, who will join them for practice for the first time Wednesday. Fasano has missed the last two games because of a concussion.

The Chiefs have Fasano, Gordon and Sean McGrath at tight end. McGrath caught a touchdown pass Sunday against the Oakland Raiders. Dominique Jones had been their second tight end during Fasano's absence but he was placed on the non-football injury list.

Gordon, at 268 pounds, is more of a blocker than receiver. He played for the Raiders the past two seasons, catching three passes.
