Chiefs’ Spencer Ware Expected to Miss Season With Torn PCL

Chiefs running back Spencer Ware could miss extended time with a knee injury.

Kansas City Chiefs running back Spencer Ware tore his PCL "in addition to other damage" during Friday’s preseason loss to the Seahawks and is expected to miss the season, but he will seek a second opinion, according to the team.'s Ian Rapoport reported that Ware damaged his LCL and PCL.

Ware, 25, rushed for 914 yards and three touchdowns last season and was expected to begin the season as Kansas City’s lead tailback. Rookie Kareem Hunt had been pushing him for carries and will likely assume the starting role in his absence.

The other running backs on the Chiefs’ depth chart are Charcandrick West, CJ Spiller and Devine Redding.
