Chiefs Sign Former Browns Linebacker

UNDATED (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs signed former Cleveland Browns linebacker Nate Orchard to shore up their pass rush with linebackers Justin Houston and Dee Ford hobbled by injuries.

Houston could miss several weeks after hurting his hamstring in Kansas City’s win over Jacksonville.

Ford has dealt with a series of minor injuries this season. The 25-year-old Orchard was a second-round pick of the Browns in the 2015 draft.
