Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Marc Boerigter will miss the season after injuring his right knee in last week's exhibition loss to Cleveland.
Boerigter, 26, was hurt without contact, twisting his knee while away from the play. Coach Dick Vermeil said Boerigter probably sustained ligament damage. He was placed on injured reserve yesterday, meaning he is out for the year.
The 6-foot-3, 220-pound Boerigter caught just 11 passes for 158 yards last season, his second in the NFL. As a rookie, he had 420 receiving yards and eight of his 20 catches went for touchdowns, including a record-tying 99-yard score against San Diego on Dec. 22, 2002.
Pro Bowl kick returner Dante Hall probably will replace Boerigter as the team's third wide receiver.
* TITANS: Doctors removed a piece of torn cartilage from wide receiver Tyrone Calico's left knee and cornerback Samari Rolle met with a doctor for a second opinion on his right ankle.
Calico was on crutches yesterday afternoon, and Coach Jeff Fisher said doctors were encouraged by how well the surgery went. Calico is expected to miss the season opener on Sept. 12 and be out up to three weeks after spraining both knees in Monday night's game against Dallas.
Fisher said Rolle would be able to play if this were the regular season, but he said the cornerback has had some slight swelling in his ankle. The team wanted another opinion after using a variety of devices trying to help Rolle take pressure off the joint.
* JETS: Defensive back Jamie Henderson was re-signed despite being seriously injured in an April motorcycle accident that will keep him out the entire season. The team said it hopes Henderson, who is on the reserve-non-football injury list, will be able to participate in the offseason workout program.
"It was unfortunate what Jamie has experienced. He is part of our organization, and we felt signing him was the right thing to do," General Manager Terry Bradway said in a statement.
Henderson had 30 tackles on defense and one interception in 32 games with the Jets and 41 tackles and a blocked punt on special teams, his primary duty. He had played three seasons and was a restricted free agent but hadn't signed because he is still recovering from injuries that occurred when he lost control of his motorcycle in Carrollton, Ga.
* DOLPHINS: Miami signed veteran defensive end Chidi Ahanotu. Ahanotu, 33, played in all 16 games with the San Francisco 49ers last season, starting one game and recording 30 tackles and four sacks.
* CARDINALS: Arizona placed running back Marcel Shipp and fullback James Hodgins on injured reserve and claimed running back Aveion Cason and defensive tackle Shaun Smith off waivers.
