The Kansas City Chiefs officially placed rookie tight end Travis Kelce on injured reserve on Saturday.
Kelce, 24, had microfracture knee surgery this week.
Kansas City took Kelce in the third round of the draft out of Cincinnati.
To fill Kelce's spot on the roster, the Chiefs promoted rookie safety Bradley McDougald from their practice squad. McDougald, out of Kansas, has played two games but has spent the majority of the season on the practice squad.
