Kansas City Chiefs S Justin Reid successful in PAT kick attempt vs. Chicago Bears

Justin Reid will no doubt want to keep his day job as starting safety for the Kansas City Chiefs, but he showed in Saturday’s preseason game against the Chicago Bears that he might have another role to help his team in an emergency.

Reid kicked a point after the touchdown late in the first half and placed the kick right down the middle.

Reid practiced shorter kicks during the pregame warm-up and said on the Chiefs TV show that his coaches told him if he looked good doing it, they could use him in the game.

Reid started during a 2021 preseason game while playing for the Houston Texans. He made a 65-yard field goal attempt during a training camp practice for the Chiefs this summer.

He also missed a field goal attempt badly at camp, leading special teams coordinator Dave Toub to joke that the Chiefs were still looking for their backing for regular kicker Harrison Butker.

But after executing the kick against the Bears, Reid said, “That backup kick position is locked.”
