Kansas City brought back Damien Williams and Darrel Williams and signed journeyman back Carlos Hyde to compete for snaps, but midway throughout training camp, the former Williams (and the Chiefs' presumed starter) is not on the field. The 27-year-old back missed the past week with a hamstring injury and there is currently no timetable for his return.
"Carlos has done a nice job," HC Andy Reid said. "He's getting a lot of reps and he's taking advantage of them." In Kansas City, Hyde suddenly has the opportunity to stake a claim for a starting role again with Williams currently out of the rotation. It doesn't appear the Chiefs are just being cautious with Williams as Reid has appeared frustrated with Williams lack of practice time, according to reports.
