[KC Chiefs.com] Chiefs President Carl Peterson announced on Saturday that the club had placed T Will Svitek on Injured Reserve.
Svitek originally joined the Chiefs as the first of the club’s two sixth-round selections (187th overall) in the 2005 NFL Draft. Svitek gained valuable experience earlier this year in the NFL Europe League. He started all 11 games at left tackle for a Frankfurt Galaxy squad that claimed a victory in World Bowl XIV vs. Amsterdam (5/27). A native of Prague, Czech Republic, Svitek played both tight end and defensive end at Stanford before switching exclusively to defense during his junior season. He prepped at Newbury Park High School in Newbury Park, California.
