KANSAS CITY, Mo. Demarcus Robinson Jersey . -- The Kansas City Chiefs placed rookie tight end Travis Kelce on injured reserve Saturday after he had arthroscopic surgery earlier in the week to repair damaged cartilage in his left knee. The elevated defensive back Bradley McDougald from the practice squad to fill his roster spot. Kelce had been dealing with what the Chiefs thought was a bruised bone in his knee since training camp. He underwent a series of MRI exams that kept coming back negative, so he opted to have surgery on Tuesday that revealed the damage to his cartilage. "This is an injury people get better from," Chiefs trainer Rick Burkholder said. "Hes a young guy. Hes got a good, healthy knee. We protected him so he didnt do any additional damage. That gives him the best chance to come back and have a good, long career." Kelce, a third-round draft pick out, played sparingly in the preseason and had played in a regular-season game. He had already been ruled out for Sundays game against Oakland. "It kind of got out of control in a couple of preseason games," Kelce said recently. "It just comes from doing a lot of work, a lot of loading on the leg. Ive never dealt with this before, so its all new to me. Its frustrating." Its also frustrating for the Chiefs, who have been banged up at tight end. Tony Moeaki fractured his shoulder during the preseason and will be unavailable all year, and top tight end Anthony Fasano is still listed as doubtful for the Raiders with a sprained ankle. The Chiefs have had to turn to Sean McGrath, whom they picked up off waivers from Seattle just before the start of the season, and Kevin Brock, who didnt play at all in the NFL last season, just so that they could have two tight ends available for their regular-season games. McGrath has filled in admirably, though. He has 15 catches for 180 yards and a touchdown. "Im going to tell you all like I tell everyone, Im going to prepare the same every single week," McGrath said, "whether Im going to be out there a lot or Im not." In other injury news, free safety Kendrick Lewis is listed as questionable against Oakland with a lingering ankle injury, and Brandon Flowers is also questionable with a knee injury that popped up late in the week. Flowers dealt with an injury to his other knee earlier in the season. Outside linebacker Justin Houston is probable after undergoing evaluations all week for a possible concussion. He was a full participant in practice Friday but will be examined again before the game. Armani Watts Chiefs Jersey .

United on Saturday. "Were not happy," Perkins said. "Were not sad." That was the consensus in Montreals locker-room after United forward Eddie Johnsons 84th-minute strike negated a goal from red-hot Impact striker Jack McInerney at RFK Stadium. While Montreal (1-5-4) regretted giving up the lead, a point on the road on short rest gave the Impact reason for optimism as they try to escape the Eastern Conference cellar. The Impact were playing just three days after a 4-2 win over FC Edmonton, which earned them a berth in the Canadian Championship final. Montreals most recent league outing was a 3-0 home loss to Sporting Kansas City last weekend. "It felt a little bit like a disappointment, but its something to build on," Impact coach Frank Klopas said. "It was a question mark with some of the guys, playing midweek and a lot of travel, so it was good to see the effort that they put in as a whole." For McInerney, the 56th-minute goal was his fourth in his past four games in all competitions, and his fifth overall since joining the Impact in an April 4 trade from the Philadelphia Union. Stealing a bad first touch off the foot of United left back Cristian Fernandez, Impact winger Justin Mapp raced down the right side, cut inside and found McInerney in front for the simple finish. With 2013 MVP finalist Marco Di Vaio (20 goals last season) sidelined by a hamstring injury in recent weeks, McInerney has proven to be a more-than-viable backup plan. "Thats a striker for you," Klopas said. "Every twwo, three games, you want a guy thats going to score. Chad Henne Chiefs Jersey. Hes been doing that, so thats something thats very positive. Hes always around the goal, and thats a very good sign." It was the third assist of a McInerney goal for Mapp, who played with him in Philadelphia from 2010 to 2011. "He (Mapp) is getting the ball in good spots and making it easy for me, so hopefully we can keep it going," McInerney said. United (4-3-3) enjoyed 57 per cent of the possession and twice struck the crossbar, while Montreal created a myriad of chances of its own. Speedy winger Sanna Nyassi found himself repeatedly denied by stellar stops from United goalkeeper Bill Hamid. When one of Nyassis rebounds fell to McInerney, the strikers second strike was denied by diving United right back Chris Korb. "Thats the best weve played -- possession, buildup, defending well," Perkins said. Johnson rose to nod home a Fabian Espindola cross at the far post with six minutes remaining. The goal was the first tally since an off-season trade from the Seattle Sounders for Johnson, who was snubbed this week from the U.S. national teams preliminary World Cup roster. The combination of Wednesdays win over Edmonton and Saturdays road draw left the Impact feeling positive heading into a trip to face the Colorado Rapids next Saturday at Dicks Sporting Goods Park. "At the end of the day, if we want to make a little run into the playoffs, we need to put those chances away," McInerney said. "It should have been 2-, 3-0. But I think we came in and we surprised a lot of people, so well take the point and move on." Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys From China Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Wholesale Hockey Jerseys China Nike Baseball Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys China Cheap Football Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Canada Wholesale NHL Jerseys Canada Wholesale Nike MLB Jerseys Canada Cheap NBA Jerseys Authentic Canada Stitched Soccer Jerseys Canada Cheap Jerseys Canada NFL ' ' '
