Chiefs HC Andy Reid said after Friday night's preseason game that RB Spencer Ware is dealing with a "sprained knee." His ACL is believe to be intact, but he'll undergo further testing to check for damage to the meniscus, PCL or MCL. It sounds like Ware escaped without a season-ending injury, but he's probably still looking at a multi-week absence. We'll continue to update his status as we learn more. If you're drafting in the meantime, Ware is no more than a later-round bench stash. RB Kareem Hunt, meanwhile, got a big boost up the RB rankings.

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware suffered a right knee injury in the 1st quarter of Friday night's game against the Chiefs. He left the field on a cart and the team quickly ruled him out for the game. That obviously doesn't bode well. Any missed time would deliver a huge boost to RB Kareem Hunt's fantasy outlook. Hunt was already sharing 1st-team work with Ware in the 3rd preseason contest. We'll keep an eye out for further updates.

Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt got a bunch of run with the 1st-team offense in Saturday's 2nd preseason game. RB Spencer Ware got the opening snap but then gave way to Hunt. The rookie proceeded to rip off 40 yards on 8 carries, plus another 23 on 3 catches. HC Andy Reid said afterward than Hunt "tweaked" his ankle but is "fine." We'll be curious to see how the 1st-team snaps are split between Hunt and Ware in the 3rd exhibition. It certainly looks like the rookie is pushing for a significant early-season role.

Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt played just 1 of 19 first-team snaps in Friday night's preseason opener against the 49ers, according to Pro Football Focus. RB Spencer Ware got the other 18, rushing 4 times for 6 yards and a TD, and catching 3 passes for 20 more yards. Hunt touched the ball just twice, rushing once for no gain and catching a 9-yard pass from QB Patrick Mahomes on a 3rd-and-long play. It's early, but continued usage patterns like this could make Ware a stronger value at his Round 6 ADP.

The Chiefs added Toledo RB Kareem Hunt in the 3rd round of the 2017 NFL Draft. Hunt disappointed at the Combine, posting a 28th percentile SPARQ score. But the tape is much more impressive. He flashes a nice combination of power and make-you-miss ability, which helped him force the 2nd most missed tackles in the nation last year, per Pro Football Focus. Hunt also looks comfy in the passing game. He tallied a 41-403-1 receiving line this past year after totaling just 32 grabs across his first 3 seasons. Hunt dealt with an ankle injury in 2014 and a hamstring issue in 2015, so durability is a concern. But he handled 262 carries last year and is a solid 5’10, 216 pounds. Hunt is capable of immediately pushing Spencer Ware for touches and, longer term, has a shot to emerge as a 3-down back.

The NFL has moved kickoff of the Steelers-Chiefs game to 8:20 pm ET on Sunday. The game was originally scheduled to start at 1:05 ET, but Kansas City is expected to get slammed by an ice storm this weekend. The current forecast calls for a 100% chance of rain and 32-degree temperatures for Sunday night, so we're not sure what the new kickoff time is accomplishing. Wind isn't expected to be an issue, but the conditions will obviously be less than ideal for the passing games.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid said Monday that RB Spencer Ware (ribs) is "good to go" for Sunday's game against the Steelers. Ware was a game-time decision for the regular-season finale but ended up sitting out. He should step back in as Kansas City's lead back this weekend. Ware has seen 15+ touches in 7 straight outings and averaged a solid 77.7 yards per game.

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (ribs) is inactive for today’s game against the Chargers. That leaves Charcandrick West in what should be a feature back role.

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (ribs) is "hopeful" to play against the Chargers today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. HC Andy Reid labeled Ware a game-time decision, but we're betting that he plays after getting in 3 limited practices this week. Kansas City still has a shot at the AFC's #2 seed, and Ware can earn $600,000 if he gains another 79 yards today.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid labeled RB Spencer Ware (ribs) a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt with the Chargers. He was limited in practice all week. Kansas City is still battling for the AFC's #2 seed, so Ware will play if he's able. The issue for fantasy owners is that Chiefs-Chargers doesn't kick off until 4:25 pm ET on Sunday. Charcandrick West will serve in something close to a feature-back role if Ware can't go.

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (ribs) practiced on Wednesday. HC Andy Reid said he was pulled from last week's game as a precaution. So he should be ready to roll for Sunday's game against the Chargers. Kansas City can still claim the AFC's #2 seed with a win and a loss by the Raiders in Denver.

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware injured his ribs in Sunday night's win over the Broncos, HC Andy Reid said. He's scheduled for an MRI on Monday. Kansas City still has a shot at the AFC's #2 seed with a Week 17 win coupled with a Raiders loss, so Ware will likely play if he's medically cleared. If not, Charcandrick West will step in as the lead back against the Chargers.

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware didn't find much running room against the Raiders on Thursday night. He finished with 56 yards on 20 carries (2.8 yards per carry), with none of those going for more than 8 yards. Ware added just 7 yards on 1 catch and 2 targets. Worst of all: He was vultured by Charcandrick West for a 3-yard TD. Ware out-snapped West 40 to 13 and out-touched him 21 to 2, so he remains the clear lead back here. But Ware simply hasn't been good in 5 games since returning from his concussion, averaging just 3.4 yards per carry. Consider him just a RB2 next week against a Titans defense that's better against the run than the pass.

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (concussion) put in a full week of practice and will play against the Panthers on Sunday. He’s right back to RB1 status, despite a matchup vs. the league’s 6th-ranked RB defense.

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (concussion) put in a full practice on Wednesday and has been medically cleared to play against the Panthers this weekend. He just needs to avoid a setback over the next few days. Carolina ranks 6th in fantasy points allowed, but Ware's 3-down role returns him to must-start status.

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (concussion) returned to practice on Wednesday. We haven't heard that he's received full clearance, but he's certainly trending in that direction. Fantasy owners can pencil Ware into Week 10 lineups for now. We'll continue to track his progress.

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. He didn't practice all week and shouldn't be considered a lock to return for Week 10. His absence leaves Charcandrick West in a feature back role in a plus matchup.

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (concussion) remained sidelined on Thursday. He's looking like a long shot to play against the Jaguars this weekend. That'd put Charcandrick West in a feature-back role in a positive matchup. We'll get another update on Ware tomorrow.

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (concussion) did not practice on Wednesday. He'll probably need to at least get in a limited practice on Thursday to have a chance to play against the Jaguars this weekend. At this point, RB Charcandrick West looks like the favorite to start that one.

The Chiefs have signed RB Bishop Sankey off the Patriots' practice squad. They need a warm body in the backfield with Spencer Ware (concussion) and Jamaal Charles (knee) iffy for Sunday's game against Jacksonville. Sankey has been a colossal bust since being selected in the 2nd round of the 2014 draft, averaging 3.8 yards per carry with just 4 total TDs. He'll back up RB Charcandrick West if Ware and Charles are both out this weekend. Sankey isn't worth adding to fantasy rosters.
