Packers' Knile Davis: Traded to Green Bay

The Chiefs traded Davis to the Packers on Tuesday, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports.

The Packers were desperate to add depth at running back with Eddie Lacy sustaining an ankle injury in their Week 6 loss to the Cowboys and James Starks (knee) ruled out for the next four weeks, so the addition of Davis certainly fulfills a need. As the No. 4 running back in Kansas City, Davis had been a healthy inactive the last few weeks following the return of Jamaal Charles. That made him an expendable piece for the Chiefs, who will presumably receive a late-round pick in return for the running back. Given that the Packers have a quick turnaround with their next game coming Thursday against the Bears, it's unlikely that Davis will be a major part of the game plan while he's still learning his new team's playbook. As such, wideout Ty Montgomery could end up seeing some involvement out of the backfield as the de facto backup to Lacy, who is listed as questionable for Thursday.
