Looking to fill the considerable void left by the absence of Jamaal Charles, the Kansas City Chiefs will have free agent running back Ben Tate in for a visit.
The 5-foot-10, 220-pound Tate is a former second-round draft pick of the Houston Texans. He rushed for a career-high 942 yards as a rookie in 2011 and rushed for 771 yards in 2013.
Since then, he has bounced from the Cleveland Browns to the Minnesota Vikings and finally the Pittsburgh Steelers.
If he works out well, Tate could help the Chiefs. The untested Charcandrick West is first in line as the replacement for Charles, who tore the ACL in his right knee in Sunday's loss to the Chicago Bears.
The Chiefs also have Knile Davis, but he has fallen from favor with the coaching staff. He fell behind West on the depth chart even before the Chiefs lost Charles.
