Chiefs' McBride done for the season

The Chiefs lost another player to a season-ending injury when defensive end Turk McBride was put on injured reserve.

The Chiefs were hopeful McBride would be able to play through a shoulder injury, but it hasn't improved. It is a hit both now and for the future. The second-player player has a lot of promise and he will miss valuable experience in the final six games this season.

Defensive end will surely be an area Kansas City tries to upgrade in the offense. The Chiefs have a league low six sacks this season. McBride has one career sack in 10 NFL starts. He had three sacks in the preseason this summer.

Meanwhile, running back/return man Dantrell Savage was cut. He is a candidate to go to the practice squad.
