Chiefs placed S Kyle McCarthy (knee) on injured reserve, ending his season.

McCarthy sustained the apparently serious knee injury during Saturday's practice. It's unclear if this knee injury is related to the one he sustained while with the Broncos in 2010. The former undrafted free agent out of Notre Dame was trying to crack the roster as a special teamer.

Chiefs S Kyle McCarthy was carted off the practice field Saturday and is believed to have a significant knee injury.

McCarthy also suffered a major knee injury in 2010. "His knee doesn't look good," said coach Romeo Crennel. "We'll have to let the swelling go down and see where it leads us, but it's one of those things in football that happens."
