The Chiefs placed RB Jackie Battle on injured reserve Saturday, ending his season.

Battle injured his foot in a Week 16 loss to Oakland and already had been ruled out of Sunday's season finale at Denver.

In 15 games this season, Battle rushed for 597 yards and two touchdowns on 149 carries, for a 4.0-yard average. He also had nine receptions for 68 yards. The fifth-year player made four starts after the Chiefs lost starting RB Jamaal Charles after Week Two with a torn ACL.
