 FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -The New York Jets placed running back Jesse Chatman and rookie quarterback Erik Ainge on injured reserve Tuesday.
Chatman injured his left knee during the Jets' 28-24 victory over Kansas City on Sunday and left the locker room on crutches. Coach Eric Mangini said on Monday that the injury appeared to be season-ending.
Chatman, who signed with the Jets as a free agent in March, missed the first four games after being suspended without pay for violating the league's steroids and related substances policy. Chatman said he tested for a diuretic - ``something I never even heard of'' - that could be used as a masking agent.
He had 8 yards on five carries, two receptions for 5 yards and five special teams tackles in three games.
Ainge, who has an injured right foot, was New York's fifth-round pick out of Tennessee and was inactive for every game this season. The Jets still have three quarterbacks on their roster with Brett Favre, Kellen Clemens and Brett Ratliff.
