| Torn PCL for Spencer Ware, likely out for the year|
Chiefs RB will get second opinion
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Aug 27, 11:33 am
|Spencer Ware has a torn PCL in addition to other damage. He'll get a second opinion, but it's thought to be season ending, per @proatc. (BJ Kissel on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Listening to Chiefs trainer Rick Burkholder, it sounds like their may be other ligament damage in his knee. Ware will get a second opinion but its likely he will require surgery and be lost for the year. This news moves Kareem Hunt up to the No.1 RB in the Chiefs offense and puts Hunt in the discussion of high-end RB2s. It's not out of the question for the Chiefs to bring a free agent, but for now Charcandrick West and C.J. Spiller fill out the depth chart behind Hunt.

Chiefs lose starting RB on opening drive

|Bad news for the Chiefs. RB Spencer Ware down after being tackled and holding his right knee. (Adam Teicher on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Much like Julian Edelman, Ware was carted off the field tonight with a right knee injury. We don't know the severity but it didn't look good. Rookie Kareem Hunt, C.J. Spiller and Charcandrick West are next up on the depth chart.

Chiefs focus on run game against Bengals

|Hunt, to be sure, looked great. His first carry went for 5 yards, and he sprinkled in a pair of darting, dashing 8- and 11-yard runs where he showed off the vision, balance and burst that caused the Chiefs to trade up for him in this year’s draft. He kept that up through the second quarter - all the while flashing upside as a receiver, as well - and finished the game with eight carries for 40 yards (a 5.0 average) and three catches for 23 yards before departing because of a tweaked ankle.

FFToday's Take: The Chiefs focused on the run game Saturday night against the Bengals giving starter Spencer Ware most of the night off, allowing rookie Kareem Hunt and veteran C.J. Spiller to rack up 67 yards on 14 carries combined. Hunt left in the 2nd quarter after tweaking his ankle, but head coach Andy Reid expects him to be "fine". Spiller and Charcandrick West (7-113) are battling for the No.3 spot.
