The Kansas City Chiefs have placed rookie tight end Travis Kelce on injured reserve after he had arthroscopic surgery this week to repair damaged cartilage in his left knee.

The Chiefs made the move Saturday. They also elevated defensive back Bradley McDougald from the practice squad to the 53-man roster to fill his spot.

Kelce had been dealing with what the Chiefs thought was a bruised bone in his knee since training camp. Kelce underwent a series of MRI exams that came back negative, so he opted to have arthroscopic surgery Tuesday that revealed the damage to his cartilage.

Kelce had already been ruled out for Sunday's game against Oakland. Starting tight end Anthony Fasano is listed as doubtful after missing practice this week with a sprained ankle.
