News: McKnight (Achilles) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports. Impact: McKnight ruptured his Achilles in practice last week, so it was just a matter of time before he ended up on IR. The fourth-year back posted a career game in Week 3 with Jamaal Charles out with an ankle injury - catching six passes for 64 yards and two scores - after not playing at all in 2013. His loss makes the eventual return of De'Anthony Thomas (hamstring) more intriguing, though Charles and Knile Davis will continue to handle most of the work out of the backfield for Kansas City.(RotoWire, )

News: McKnight (Achilles) will not play in Monday's game against the Patriots. Impact: McKnight surprised with two touchdowns in Week 3, but any momentum he had was stomped out by the ruptured Achilles he suffered Thursday. He's out indefinitely.(RotoWire, )

News: McKnight has ruptured his Achilles tendon, becoming the third Chiefs player to sustain the season-ending injury already this season. Impact: McKnight sustained the injury in practice Thursday. McKnight has been plagued by injuries dating to his days at Southern California, and he never could stay healthy with the New York Jets. He spent last season out of the NFL entirely.(STATS, 1:59pm)

News: McKnight suffered a ruptured Achilles' heel at practice Thursday, BJ Kissel of KCChiefs.com reports. Impact: McKnight thus appears headed to IR, with the potential return of De'Anthony Thomas to the Chiefs' Week 4 backfield mix now a matter of added import.(RotoWire, )

News: McKnight (Achilles) was limited at practice Thursday, ESPN.com reports. Impact: McKnight recorded 64 receiving yards and two touchdowns in Week 3, but we wouldn't bank on too many games like that from him this season, especially with Jamaal Charles and De'Anthony Thomas candidates to suit up Monday against the Patriots.(RotoWire, )

News: McKnight caught six passes on seven targets for 64 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's win at Miami. Impact: McKnight wasn't even a lock to make the team a few weeks ago, but served as Alex Smith's go-to weapon in the passing game Sunday. Of course he only saw the field as much as he did because of Jamaal Charles' absence. Once Charles (ankle) returns to the lineup, expect McKnight to head back to the bench.(RotoWire, )
