Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (hamstring) is not listed on the final injury report after putting in full practices on Thursday and Friday. So he'll presumably be active for Sunday's AFC Championship against the Patriots. Ware was atop Kansas City's depth chart prior to the injury but figures to return as Damien Williams' backup. It's unclear exactly how much work Ware will siphon.

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (hamstring) put in a full practice on Thursday. He was limited all last week before sitting out the win over the Colts. But remember that he was a full participant prior to Week 17 and missed that one. We'll see how the Chiefs list Ware on tomorrow's final injury report.

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (hamstring) is inactive for today's game against the Colts. That again leaves Damien Williams as the clear lead back. He averaged 11.3 carries and 4.7 targets per game over the last 3 and should be looking at a similar workload today.

Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is officially active for today's game against the Colts. He's been out since Week 11 and was limited in practice all week. It's entirely unclear how big a role Watkins will play today, making him a risk/reward fantasy play.

Chiefs S Eric Berry is "unlikely" to play against the Colts today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Berry is officially questionable with the heel injury that has dogged him since his late-season return.

The Chiefs expect to have WR Sammy Watkins in the lineup for today's game against the Colts, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Watkins is officially questionable after putting in limited practices all week because of the foot injury that has kept him out since Week 11. He'll obviously be a risky fantasy prospect even if active, but there's upside in the game with this week's highest over/under by far.

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Colts. He was limited in practice all week -- notable after Ware was a full-go in practice before sitting out the regular-season finale. We'll see if Ware is up when inactives come out around 3 pm ET on Saturday. Even if he is, though, we're expecting Damien Williams to serve as Kansas City's lead back.

Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Colts after a limited week of practice. "We'll see," HC Andy Reid said when asked about Watkins' availability. We'll get his official status around 3 pm ET on Saturday. If active, Watkins will be a risk/reward fantasy play in his 1st action since Week 11.

Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (foot) put in a limited practice on Tuesday -- his 1st practice of any kind since Week 11. It gives him a shot to return for Saturday's game against the Colts. We'll continue to monitor his progress.

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (hamstring) was limited in Tuesday's practice. He was a full-go prior to Week 17 but was then inactive for the finale -- so it looks like he might have suffered a setback. We'll get another update on his status Wednesday afternoon.

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (hamstring) is inactive for today's game against the Raiders. It’s a surprise after he put in a full week of practice. Ware’s absence makes Damien Williams a RB1 in fantasy lineups.

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders. He should play after putting in a full week of practice, but we’re expecting him to be in a committee backfield alongside Damien Williams. Williams is the safer fantasy bet.

The Chiefs and RB Damien Williams have agreed to a 2-year extension worth up to $8.1 million, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He's now signed with Kansas City through the 2020 campaign. Williams has stepped up for 263 yards and 3 scores over the past 2 weeks, averaging 6.6 yards per carry and 8.5 yards per catch. He should remain a big part of the offense the rest of this season, even with the return of RB Spencer Ware. We'll see what the Chiefs add to the backfield this offseason.

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (hamstring) put in a full practice on Wednesday, putting him on track to return for this weekend's game against the Raiders. Ware was operating as Kansas City's lead back before the injury (and after Kareem Hunt's suspension), but he might return to more of a committee with Damien Williams. Consider both guys RB2s for Week 17 -- but with plenty of upside in a plus matchup.

Chiefs CB Kendall Fuller (thumb) is inactive for tonight's game against the Seahawks. That helps the outlook for Seattle slot WR Doug Baldwin.

7:12pm EST 12/23/18

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (hamstring) is inactive for tonight’s game against the Seahawks. Damien Williams handled 10 carries and 6 targets with Ware out last week and should be looking at a similar workload tonight. He’s a RB2 with RB1 upside.

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Sunday night’s game against the Seahawks. He was limited in practice all week but evidently isn’t ready yet. That again leaves Kansas City’s backfield to Damien Williams and Darrell Williams. Last week, Damien played 73% of the offensive snaps and handled 10 carries and 6 targets. Darrell played 25%, carried twice and saw 2 targets. Expect a similar split on Sunday night.

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He missed last Thursday night's game against the Chargers but seemingly has a shot to return for Sunday night's game against the Seahawks. Ware might cede more touches to Damien Williams, though, after Williams' strong showing last week.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the Chiefs believe CB Kendall Fuller suffered a wrist fracture in Thursday night's loss to the Chargers that will require surgery. That likely means Fuller is done for the season, which would leave the K.C. defense without its slot corner. That'd be good news for Seahawks slot WR Doug Baldwin in Week 16 if he's ready for the teams' showdown.

6:12pm EST 12/13/18

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (heel, wrist) is active for tonight’s game against the Chargers. He played through the injuries last week — effectively — and got in a couple of limited practices this week. He comes with more risk than usual tonight but still boasts big upside.
