The Chiefs star running back got a single carry, as they work to protect him as he comes back from last year’s knee injury.
“Things were going OK, so I kind of let it ride there,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said, via Blair Kerkhoff of the Kansas City Star. “His knee puffed up a little this week, and I’m trying to be as careful as we can with him, . . . and with him in my ear wanting to play.”
Swelling in his surgically repaired knee is obviously a concern, but the Chiefs have managed him carefully, with just 12 carries in the three games in which he has appeared. Ware has done a solid job as their lead back, and had 17 carries for 77 yards in yesterday’s win over the Saints. Looks like Ware will at least be a solid fantasy play until Charles' knee situation improves.
