Third-round pick Kareem Hunt got a chance to show his versatility. He was limited to one carry and one catch in the preseason opener. On Saturday, he was the featured running back on the first two drives. Hunt had 8 carries for 40 yards and 3 catches for 23 yards.

Hunt has been generating some buzz, but Spencer Ware isn’t going to go gently into that good night. Since becoming a Chief, Ware has averaged 4.63 YPC on 286 carries, and his 13.5 yards per catch was the second most of any running back with 30-plus receptions in 2016. It’s more likely that Hunt finds a role on passing downs, potentially replacing Charcandrick West. However, this is still a situation to monitor as the season approaches.
