Ware’s return to the Chiefs lasted just three weeks. The move leaves the Chiefs with Damien Williams, Darwin Thompson and LeSean McCoy (who was inactive in Week 16) at running back. The Chiefs can still get a bye, but the Patriots will likely take care of ten Dolphins early, meaning players might be rested and limited against the Chargers, though Kansas City could still drop to the fourth seed with a loss. In any event, it’s looking like more of a foggy situation in the Chiefs backfield for the regular season finale.
Johnson owners have likely learned their lesson after last week when Johnson got one carry before turning things over to Edmonds. It's a situation to monitor as Foster is also banged up, so if the team signs another back, it may not necessarily mean Johnson won't return to his normal workload in Week 8.
