Langford Signed To Chiefs' Active Roster

He must have done a good job impersonating Elvis Dumervil.

Practice squad safety Reshard Langford was signed to the Chiefs' 53-man roster on Friday. According to offensive tackle Winston Justice, Langford had the task of imitating Broncos outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil on the scout team in practice earlier in the week.

The Chiefs plucked another linebacker from the Eagles' practice squad last season. Former Eagles draft pick Andy Studebaker was signed to the Chiefs' active roster in November 2008. Still a member of the Chiefs, Studebaker recently recorded his first career touchdown returning a fumbled punt for a score against the Cleveland Browns.

Originally signed by the Eagles as a rookie free agent following this year's draft, Langford had spent the entire season up until this point on the team's practice squad. He was a four-year starter at Vanderbilt, recording 247 tackles with 16 for loss and 11 interceptions. He earned all-state honors as a senior at Tanner (Ala.) High School.

There is no word regarding who will replace Langford on the practice squad.
