Chiefs RB Isiah Pacheco ran for 66 yards and a TD on 14 carries in Sunday's loss to the Bengals, adding 16 yards on 2 receptions. RB Jerick McKinnon carried 8 times for 51 yards and caught a 2-yard TD among 2 receptions for 9 yards. Kansas City leaned more on the run, handing to RBs 22 times vs. just 27 Patrick Mahomes pass attempts. Week 14 holds a Denver defense that has been a worse RB-scoring matchup than Cincinnati. But after that comes better matchups with Houston and Seattle.
Chiefs RB Isiah Pacheco (hamstring) is expected to play vs. the Bears on Sunday, per insider Jordan Schultz. "The team will re-evaluate in the morning just to be sure, but I’m told Pacheco had a good workout Saturday morning," Schultz tweets. Pacheco gets a pristine matchup as a big home favorite against a bad Chicago defense. But he missed a lot of time this offseason after a pair of surgeries and is now dealing with this hamstring, so it's tough to imagine Pacheco handling a huge workload tomorrow. See where he sits in the Week 3 RB Rankings.
Chiefs RB Isiah Pacheco (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Bears. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. We’ll look for further updates on Pacheco’s status, but we won’t get Kansas City’s inactives until a little before 3 pm ET on Sunday. He’ll be a risk/reward RB2 play in this plus matchup if he ends up giving it a go.
Chiefs RB Isiah Pacheco (hamstring) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. We'll see what he does on Friday and how he's listed on the final injury report. If healthy, Pacheco is in a great spot this weekend with the Chiefs huge home favorites against the Bears.
ESPN's Dan Graziano expects Chiefs RB Isiah Pacheco's role to grow going forward. "The Chiefs were expecting to have to ease him in because he missed some offseason time recovering from hand and shoulder injuries," Graziano writes. "They absolutely view him as their lead back, and they believe they can use him in the passing game as well as the run game." We'll need to monitor the hamstring issue that landed Pacheco on Wednesday's injury report. But if he's able to play this weekend, he's in a great spot at home for a bad Bears defense.

Chiefs RB Isiah Pacheco will sit out Wednesday's practice with a hamstring issue, HC Andy Reid said. Pacheco seemed to make it out of last week's win just fine, but we'll obviously need to keep a close eye on him over the next few days. His absence would leave Kansas City's backfield to Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Jerick McKinnon vs. Chicago on Sunday.
