The Kansas City Chiefs sure are fans of the Baltimore Ravens' practice squad.

For the second time this season, the Chiefs have turned to the Ravens' practice squad for a player to add to their 53-man roster. This time, according to The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson, tight end Phillip Supernaw will be moving to Kansas City.

Earlier this season, the Chiefs signed cornerback Jamell Fleming from Baltimore's practice squad.

Supernaw has gone back and forth on Baltimore's 53-man roster in recent weeks. He's logged time in games against the Panthers, Bengals and Steelers this year. The Chiefs are in need of tight ends as Demetrius Harris (broken foot), Anthony Fasano (knee) and Travis Kelce (ribs) are all dealing with various injuries.
