    Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware's (knee) availability for the offseason workouts is uncertain, but he should be ready for the start of training camp, according to head coach Andy Reid.

    Huddle Up: Ware likely will serve as the No. 2 running back for the Chiefs this upcoming season if he is healthy but would only see a handful of touches each game. He could be a late-round option in draft next season as a possible handcuff to Kareem Hunt.

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (knee) will have immediate surgery to repair a torn posterior collateral ligament and lateral collateral ligament. He will not play in 2017 and faces a rigorous rehabilitation program.

    Huddle Up: Kareem Hunt is clearly the running back to own in Kansas City now, with Charcandrick West serving as the next man up. Ware can be safely dropped in redraft leagues, while Hunt warrants low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 consideration.

    Updating previous reports, Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (knee) has been diagnosed with a torn PCL and has additional damage to his LCL, according to team trainer Rick Burkholder, whose staff believes Ware 'probably needs season-ending surgery.' Head coach Andy Reid has already designated rookie Kareem Hunt as the 'next man up.'

    Huddle Up: It appears as Hunt's fantasy stock can officially skyrocket. Already ticketed for something of a feature-back role for the six-to-eight weeks Ware was initially expected to miss, the rookie enters the high-end RB2/low-end RB1 conversation. There's an outside chance in less competitive leagues Hunt will drop to the fourth round, but he may go as early as the late second or early third round now.

    Updating previous reports, Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (knee) suffered damage to his LCL and PCL, although NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the tests on Ware's knee to this point have been inconclusive.

    Huddle Up: It's rarely a good sign when MRIs come up inconclusive, but moderate LCL and PCL sprains would fall under the six-to-eight week timeline that has been reported for Ware. Either way, rookie Kareem Hunt is in the driver's seat to become the feature back in Kansas City for at least the first month of the season, and possibly longer if he starts out the season fast. While Hunt will likely begin to come off the board in the fourth round of fantasy drafts now, Ware may go undrafted in shallow leagues.

    Updating an ongoing story, Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (knee) could miss as little as two weeks because of his knee injury or could miss as much as eight weeks, according to a source. He is scheduled to undergo an MRI Saturday, Aug. 26, to determine the severity of the injury.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to look for a better timetable for Ware's recovery because it affects the value of some players. Ware should continue to be considered a low-end No. 2 running back if he only misses a few weeks. Kareem Hunt would move up draft boards and be a No. 2 fantasy back if Ware misses closer to eight weeks.

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (knee) is expected to return before the end of the season, but head coach Andy Reid acknowledges there is much uncertainty regarding his situation. 'It's not one of those things that's just clear-cut, end of the season. That's not what it is right now. We've got to go through the whole process here in this case,' Reid said.

    Huddle Up: Early speculation - and that is all it is at this point - has Ware missing roughly four to six weeks with a PCL injury, but owners drafting this weekend will want to continue checking for updates on a regular basis before investing either a late pick on Ware or spending a third- or fourth-round pick on rookie Kareem Hunt. Stay tuned.

    Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (knee) likely suffered a posterior cruciate ligament injury Friday, Aug. 25, but he will have an MRI Saturday, Aug. 26, to determine the extent of the injury.

    Huddle Up: While Ware may have avoided a season-ending injury, a PCL injury could still mean a lengthy recovery. Either way, Kareem Hunt's stock is on the rise, and he looks like a low-end RB2 or strong RB3.

  • Posted: 8/25/2017 5:15pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (knee) was carted off the field after suffering a knee injury during the preseason game Friday, Aug. 25.

    Huddle Up: Owners should look for an update on Ware's status after the game to see if he will miss extended time. Kareem Hunt likely would receive a much bigger role in the offense if Ware misses significant time and would be a No. 2 fantasy running back in most leagues. Ware can still be a No. 2 or No. 3 running back if his injury is considered minor.

  • Posted: 6/13/2017 8:58pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (hamstring) suffered a minor hamstring injury during practice Tuesday, June 13.

    Huddle Up: Ware may sit out the final two days of minicamp but should be read for training camp. He posted 921 rushing yards, 447 receiving yards and five total touchdowns in 2016 and should receive most of the work again this season. He probably should be considered a No. 2 running back in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 5/9/2017 6:53am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware is likely to start and see the majority of the work as the featured back, in the opinion of beat writer Adam Teicher.

    Huddle Up: Ware posted a 214-914-3 line rushing last year, and he had a 33-447-2 line receiving. He wasn't nearly as effective as in 2015 when he averaged 5.6 yards per carry in a smaller sample size. The Chiefs drafted Kareem Hunt, and he could see a decent-sized role with a good camp. Ware is looking like a low-end RB2 in fantasy.
