Chiefs RB Damien Williams injured his knee in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game against the Raiders. He's officially questionable to return. Williams' absence leaves LeSean McCoy atop the depth chart and Darwin Thompson as the #2 RB.

Chiefs RB Damien Williams returned to practice on Wednesday. He ended up missing 8 days with his hamstring injury. RBs Carlos Hyde, Darwin Thompson and Darrell Henderson reportedly flashed in Williams' absence, but RBs coach Eric Bieniemy reiterated on Sunday that Williams is "obviously" the starter. We'll see if he can stay healthy over the next month leading up to Week 1.

Chiefs RB Damien Williams remains sidelined with the hamstring injury he suffered on July 28. "He’s missed quite a bit," HC Andy Reid said Saturday. “He’s missed a lot of plays. It’s been great for these other guys. (Carlos Hyde) has done a nice job. He’s got a lot of reps and he’s taking advantage of them." We've heard nothing to suggest that Williams is in danger of missing the start of the season. But the missed practice time is worrisome for a guy who's never spent an NFL season as a lead back.

"Damien Williams is our starter. We expect him to excel in that role." That's what Chiefs OC Eric Bienemy said Thursday, according to Brandon Kiley of 610 Sports in Kansas City. It's not a shocking revelation, but it does add some clarity to a backfield that added Carlos Hyde early this offseason for basically the same annual salary as the team is paying Williams. We're tempering our expectations a bit for Williams, who has never topped 50 carries or 23 catches through 5 NFL seasons (after arriving as an undrafted free agent). But his tremendous finish to 2018 and the numbers Kareem Hunt delivered over the previous year and a half point to the high ceiling that comes with his new job. Hyde, meanwhile, looks like more of a handcuff for fantasy purposes than a weekly flex candidate.
