The Chiefs announced on Wednesday that they have signed veteran LB Charlie Anderson. The team also placed LB Cameron Sheffield on injured reserve. Sheffield had suffered a neck injury late in the preseason.

Anderson, a seventh-year veteran, has played in 92 games (seven starts) with the Texans (2004-07) and Dolphins (2008-09) and has also played in one postseason contest. The 6-4, 250-pounder has recorded 62 tackles (42 solo), 7½ sacks, two passes defensed, four forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.

Sheffield was a fifth-round selection (142nd overall) of Kansas City in the 2010 draft.

The way we see it

The Chiefs were hoping Sheffield's injury would clear up and held a roster spot for him. However, it appears that wasn't happening and the team moved quickly to sign the veteran Anderson, who will bolster the LB depth and add valuable experience on special teams.
