Shark Bites

The Chiefs have re-signed restricted free-agent RB Darrel Williams to a 1-year deal. As the depth chart stands now, Williams and Darwin Thompson would be competing for #2 RB duties behind Clyde Edwards-Helaire. We'll see if Kansas City adds anything else to the backfield this offseason.

Recent Shark Bites

Chiefs RB Darrel Williams is in concussion protocol, HC Andy Reid said after Friday night's preseason game. We're still 3 weeks away from the start of the season, so Williams should get cleared in time for the opener. We'll monitor his progress.

Chiefs RB Darrel Williams (knee) returned to practice on Tuesday. He ended up missing just 1 practice with what was evidently just a minor knee issue. Williams remains the favorite to back up Clyde Edwards-Helaire in Kansas City.

Chiefs RB Darrel Williams has a knee injury, HC Andy Reid said Monday. We don't have any other details on the severity or how long Williams will be sidelined. We'll monitor the situation. A healthy Williams is the favorite for the #2 RB job in Kansas City.

The Athletic's Nate Taylor believes Darrel Williams will enter the season as the Chiefs' #2 RB. Williams has reportedly been splitting 1st-team reps with rookie Clyde Edwards-Helaire and showing well in all aspects. “He’s done a hell of a job,” OC Eric Bieniemy said. “He’s smart, he can run it, he does a great job of picking up the blitz, and he’s also good in the pass game, as far as catching passes out on the perimeter.” Williams has mustered just 3.4 yards per carry on 54 attempts in Kansas City over the past 2 seasons -- although he's averaged a nice 10.8 yards on 18 receptions. We're ultimately still expecting a committee backfield with Williams, DeAndre Washington and potentially Darwin Thompson if Edwards-Helaire misses time. So we're not going out of our way to draft any of these Chiefs backups. But Williams is worth a look in super deep fantasy leagues.

The Chiefs have placed RB Darrel Williams on IR with his hamstring injury. LeSean McCoy, Darwin Thompson and Spencer Ware are Kansas City's healthy RBs right now. Damien Williams (rib) remained sidelined on Wednesday. McCoy is looking like the favorite to lead this backfield in touches against the Patriots this weekend, although he hasn't topped 14 touches in a game all season.
