Broncos place Montee Ball on IR - [Full Article]

Montee Ball's season has come to an end.

The Denver Broncos placed the running back on season-ending injured reserve, the team announced Saturday.

Ball entered the season as the Broncos' No. 1 tailback after the team let Knowshon Moreno walk in the offseason. However, the 24-year-old has suffered an injury-riddled season after amassing 559 yards on 120 carries his rookie year.

Ball underwent an emergency appendectomy following Denver's first preseason game. After starting the first three regular-season games Ball suffered a groin injury in Week 5. Upon returning in Week 11, Ball re-aggravated the injury on just his fourth snap of the game.

Fantasy Impact: 

C.J. Anderson looks like he's emerged as the Broncos lead back. With Ronnie Hillman expected back soon, he would likely get RB2 work.
