KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Chiefs defensive lineman Jaye Howard has been put on injured reserve with a hip injury.

The five-year veteran has been out for several weeks, and the Chiefs decided Thursday that he was unlikely to make it back this season. There was no corresponding roster move made.

Howard signed a two-year deal to remain in Kansas City in the offseason, even though he had a breakout season a year ago. But his season included just 18 tackles and a sack in parts of eight games.

The Chiefs have already lost Allen Bailey to injury this season, and defensive tackle Dontari Poe remained sidelined this week with back spasms. Rakeem Nunez-Roches, Kendall Reyes, Jarvis Jenkins and rookie Chris Jones have been rotating through the line in their place.
