Kareem Hunt to begin season as Chiefs' featured back

Chiefs players of the game from Week 3 of preseason

The Kansas City Chiefs suffered a blow Sunday morning when athletic trainer Rick Burkholder announced that running back Spencer Ware would most likely be out for the year after needing season-ending knee surgery. That kind of injury would only have had a recovery time of around two to eight weeks.

"He damaged those and at this point in time, our medical staff believes that he needs season-ending surgery to correct that problem", Burkholder said, according to the Kansas City Star. It's a tough blow for the Chiefs, as Ware led the club with 241 carries and 1,368 yards from scrimmage (921 rushing, 447 receiving) and was set to be KC's lead back with Jamaal Charles finally out of the picture. The Chiefs are anticipating the same fate for starting running back Spencer Ware.

Ware has a sprained LCL in addition to the PCL tear after going down with a non-contact injury in Friday's preseason game. The Chiefs have been impressed with their third-round pick from Toledo. Also, Charcandrick West and C.J. Spiller will probably both make the team now that there is room for them on the roster.
