Ware (ankle) did not register a carry or reception in Sunday's 27-20 divisional round loss to the Patriots. Despite being declared active for the contest, Ware saw backfield mate Charcandrick West and Knile Davis tally all of the running back carries. While he certainly endured a disappointing end to the season, Ware revived his career in Kansas City, tallying an impressive 5.6 yards per carry and six touchdowns over nine games.
Ware (ankle) is listed as active Saturday in New England, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports. Ware wiped away any doubts about his availability in the divisional round with a full practice Friday. While he'll likely serve as the Chiefs' No. 1 running back Saturday, he's facing off against the Pats' ninth-ranked run defense, which was one of 10 across the NFL to allow less than 100 yards on the ground per game this season.
Ware (ankle) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Patriots, the Kansas City Star reports. Ware was able to return to practice Thursday in a limited fashion, which bodes well for his status for the contest, but his availability on that front likely won't be confirmed until the Chiefs' inactive list is released Saturday afternoon.
Ware (ankle) was limited at practice Thursday. After not practicing Wednesday, Ware's return to the field Thursday -- albeit in a limited capacity -- suggests that he is trending in the right direction in advance of Saturday's game against the Patriots.
Ware (ankle) won't practice Wednesday. Ware thus remains in the day-to-day category as Saturday's game against the Patriots approaches, with Knile Davis a candidate to see added work along with Charcandrick West in the event that Ware is out or limited this weekend.
