KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee to repair damage to his cartilage this week and could miss the remainder of the season. The rookie out of Cincinnati has been dealing with what the Chiefs thought was a bone bruise since training camp. A series of MRI exams had come back negative, so orthopedic surgeon Dr. Cris Barnthouse did an arthroscopic procedure Tuesday that revealed the injury. Head trainer Rick Burkholder acknowledged it could be season-ending, but coach Andy Reid said the Chiefs were not in a hurry to place Kelce on injured reserve. "Were going to give it a little time. Weve done that to this point," Reid said. "Theres nothing lost there, just to give it time. ... Its a shame that it happened, but the procedure, it happens. Ive been there personally with knees. I get the picture. I know how it works." Burkholder said Kelce had returned to the Chiefs on Wednesday to begin rehab, and that the training staff will attempt to get him on the field at some point this season. "I think this is an injury people get better from," Burkholder said. "Hes a young guy. Hes got a good, healthy knee. We protected him so he didnt do any additional damage. That gives him the best chance to come back and have a good, long career." Kelce has not played this season after the Chiefs selected him in the third round of the draft. His absence, along with that of Anthony Fasano, who has been dealing with a sprained ankle, has left the Chiefs perilously thin at tight end. In other injury news, linebacker Justin Houston has passed a series of concussion tests after taking a blow to his head and neck last Sunday. Reid said the leagues second-leading sacker would not practice on Wednesday but should be ready for Sundays game against Oakland. Houston already has 8 1/2 sacks during the Chiefs 5-0 start. "Hes going through all the protocol and so far hes clear of any signs of (a concussion)," Reid said. "But were taking him through that whole protocol on that and just making sure. The kid is doing a nice job and we dont want to do anything to jeopardize him right now." Running back Jamaal Charles was also held out of practice because of blisters that cropped up on his feet a couple weeks ago. He played last Sunday at Tennessee but is still dealing with them. "As a quarterback Ive had my fair share of blisters," said QB Alex Smith, "but nothing that looks like his. You develop your own secret to get through them." Charles wasnt available in the locker room Wednesday. "Theyve got to be bugging him," Chiefs tight end Sean McGrath said. "Its something he has to take care of and the training staff will do a great job of getting him ready." cheap jerseys from china . 5 Trade Deadline is drawing closer and teams will be deciding on whether to buy or sell. replica jerseys china .

The 29-year-old from Port Colborne, Ont., who trains out of San Diego, will fight bantamweight champion (Rowdy) Ronda Rousey on July 5 in the co-main event of UFC 175 in Las Vegas.NEW YORK -- Free-agent catcher Brian McCann and the New York Yankees are about to complete a five-year deal worth around $85 million, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press on Saturday night. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal wasnt finalized. The contract is expected to include a vesting option worth $15 million. The deals completion is pending a physical. In an already brisk off-season throughout the majors, the McCann move would be the first major addition for the Yankees since they missed the playoffs for only the second time in 19 years. They finished fourth in the AL East this year. The Yankees made finding a catcher a priority, and McCann was the best available. The seven-time All-Star played all nine of his big league seasons with the Atlanta Braves, hitting at least 20 homers for a sixth straight season before choosing to test the market after the World Series. The 29-year-old McCann returned from off-season shoulder surgery in April and hit .256 with 57 RBIs in 356 at-bats for the NL East champions. The Braves will receive a compensatory pick between the first and second round of the June draft because McCann turned down their $14.1 million qualifying offer. The Yankees relied heavilyy on career backup Chris Stewart last year after Francisco Cervelli was injured, then suspended 50 games.dddddddddddd They had let Gold Glove catcher Russell Martin leave as a free agent in a cost-cutting move before the 2013 season. McCann bats left-handed, always a bonus for power hitters at Yankee Stadium with the short right field fence. He is a career .277 hitter with 176 home runs and 661 RBIs. The Yankees still have their own free-agent business to deal with. Star second baseman Robinson Cano is on the market and seeking a contract worth up to $300 million, and the Yankees have said they wont go that high. New York hopes to get under the 2014 tax threshold of $189 million for 2014. Not including McCanns deal, New Yorks luxury tax payroll so far is $97.1 million for seven signed players next year. Several teams have been busy since the season ended. The Detroit Tigers sent first baseman Prince Fielder to the Texas Rangers for second baseman Ian Kinsler in a swap of All-Stars with rich contracts, and the St. Louis Cardinals traded former World Series MVP David Freese to the Los Angeles Angels. Philadelphia recently re-signed Carlos Ruiz, taking another top free-agent catcher off the market. ' ' '
