The Chiefs placed backup quarterback Tyler Bray on the reserve non-football injury list Wednesday, which means his season has officially come to an end.
Bray suffered an ACL injury in January, and after missing the entirety of training camp, he opened the season on the NFI list.
He returned to the practice field in late November, beginning a three-week period where the Chiefs— per NFL rules — could evaluate his play before deciding to add him to the 53-man roster or return him to the NFI list. That period came to an end Tuesday, and the Chiefs obviously chose the latter,
Bray signed a two-year extension through 2017 in September. If current No. 2 quarterback Chase Daniel leaves via free agency this offseason, Bray will be positioned to compete for the top backup role with 2014 fifth-round pick Aaron Murray.
The Chiefs signed Bray, 23, as an undrafted free agent out of Tennessee in 2013. He has not attempted a regular-season pass.
