The Chiefs are in need of a running back after Jamaal Charles left Sunday's 18–17 loss against the Bears after sustaining a non-contact injury to his knee. Charles reportedly has a torn ACL in his right knee, which would rule him out for the rest of the season.
Tate, 27, played for the Browns for eight games last season, rushing for 333 yards and four touchdowns. He was waived and claimed by Minnesota, where he rushed or 38 yards on 13 attempts in three games.
Tate eventually joined the Steelers for the playoffs after Le’Veon Bell’s knee injury.
