The Kansas City Chiefs have likely lost running back Spencer Ware for the season. The Chiefs initially thought he suffered a torn PCL, but there’s more damage.
Chiefs trainer Rick Burkholder announced the diagnosis on Sunday. The head trainer also said that he suffered damage to his LCL, a Lateral Collateral Ligament.
He’ll likely get a second opinion before being placed on injured reserve. He’ll also likely have to undergo surgery, as well.
With Ware out, the team will likely turn to third-round rookie Kareem Hunt to be the team’s workhorse.
The 25-year-old was the team’s leading rusher last season. He had 214 carries for 921 yards and three touchdowns.
Charcandrick West is expected to be the team’s backup. In addition, head coach Andy Reid said veteran running back C.J. Spiller will make the team now.
The 26-year-old West had his best season during the 2015 season when he appeared in 15 games, including nine starts. He had a 160 carries for 634 yards and four touchdowns.
However, last season, with the emergence of Ware, West had 88 carries for 293 yards and a touchdown.
The 30-year-old Spiller spent last season with two teams, the New York Jets and the Seattle Seahawks, but only appeared in six games. He also had just six carries for 18 yards.
