Spencer Ware Reportedly Will Miss Time with Knee Injury; LCL, PCL Damaged

Spencer Ware knee

One of those season-ending injuries has afflicted Kansas City Chiefs running back Spencer Ware, leaving the team without their projected starter in the backfield.

The Chiefs head athletic trainer Rick Burkholder announced some pessimistic information about their starting running back on Sunday.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported earlier Saturday the issue could keep him out anywhere from two to eight weeks, via Adam Teicher of ESPN. He damaged those and, at this point in time, our medical staff believes that he needs season-ending surgery to correct that problem.


With Ware likely out for the 2017 season, rookie Kareem Hunt will be the No. 1 running back for the Chiefs.

Last season, Ware rushed for 921 yards and 3 TDs while also showing himself to be a threat in the passing game, reeling in 33 catches for 447 yards and 2 TDs. Ware will seek a second opinion, per Kissel, but the outlook doesn't look good.

Ware was carted off the field after suffering a PCL injury in Friday's preseason game against the Seahawks. The Chiefs have been impressed with their third-round pick from Toledo.
