Chiefs Put Jackie Battle On IR, Sign LB Rogers

The Kansas City Chiefs have placed RB Jackie Battle Injured Reserve with a shoulder injury.  Taking his place on the roster is LB Justin Rogers.

Rogers spent the previous two seasons in Dallas after entering the NFL as a 6th round pick with New England in 2007.

Battle ran for 84 yards on 24 carries and also caught 6 passes for 64 yards in the preseason.  But during the regular season he only carried the ball 7 times for 21 yards and caught 2 passes for -3 yards.  He was, however, leading the team with six special teams  tackles and appeared on all four kicking units.
