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.

Knowshon Moreno - Week 6 vs. Green Bay
Knowshon Moreno has a chance to return this week, although reports on Thursday may lean towards him not playing. He's apparently uncomfortable wearing an arm brace and his playing status may be determined by whether or not he needs to wear it.
Before his injury, Moreno looked like a great back to have. He ran 24 times in Week 1 for 134 yards and a touchdown. He appeared to be ahead of Lamar Miller, but with his injury the positioning may have changed.
There are a lot of question marks surrounding Moreno this week, making him a risky play. He's at best a flex option in a favorable matchup against Green Bay.
