When asked Wednesday why Knile Davis didn’t receive a similar workload to last year with Jamaal Charles out of the mix, Chiefs coach Andy Reid acknowledged that while Davis did have three productive games with Charles out a year ago, Charcandrick West is a better fit for what the offense is currently doing.
“The things that we’ve been doing, we feel pretty good with what Charcandrick (West) is doing and Knile working in on some other things,” Reid said. “So we’re not down on Knile by any means. That’s not where we’re at with it. Just with some of the things we’re doing right now, Charcandrick kind of fits that.”
The Charcandrick Era did not get off to a very good start -- he was benched late after fumbling -- but it sounds as if the Chiefs will continue to use him as the lead back.
