Chiefs place tight end Travis Kelce on injured reserve


The Chiefs placed rookie tight end Travis Kelce on injured reserve on Saturday, the team said.

Kelce, 24, had microfracture knee surgery this week. The Chiefs selected him in the third round (No. 63 overall) in April. He played collegiately at Cincinnati.

In a corresponding roster move, the Chiefs promoted rookie safety Bradley McDougald from their practice squad. A Kansas product, the 6-foot-1, 209-pound McDougald has spent the majority of the regular season on the Chiefs’ practice squad, but he was on their roster for the first two games, though he did not play in either contest.

    That does not bode well for his future. Most people would rather tear up a ACL, but only time will tell. Good luck to him.

    Bring number 88 back where he belongs

    I loved Tony G but I loath the “I want to play for a contender” attitude. Also didn’t like him dunking on our posts his first time back. I saw let him rot on Atlanta’s team and live with his decision.

    Of course, he’d be a hell of a weapon…..

    You just as well wait for Len Dawson because Tony is not returning.

    KC has a good team, but from flowers now without both knees, and charles’ blisters from the deep, and fasano 90 percent of the year, Kelce on IR, Moeaki on IR, they may not make it through 16 games let alone a playoff game

    You had him and you traded him. He’s not coming back, deal with it.
