    Chiefs' Knile Davis: Not expected to play

    Davis will be inactive for Sunday's game against Denver with Spencer Ware used as Charcandrick West's backup, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. It sounds like Davis will be a healthy scratch, but we'll have to wait for inactives to be announced before game time to be sure. Davis has just 12 carries combined over the last four games, so this may not be a huge surprise.

    Chiefs' Knile Davis: Four carries in 35-point win

    Davis rushed four times for nine yards during Sunday's 45-10 win over the Lions in London. Charcandrick West continues to dominate the touches for the Chiefs, as he rushed 20 times for 97 yards and a touchdown while adding 25 receiving yards on four receptions. Davis' fantasy value is very limited as long as West is healthy.

    Chiefs' Knile Davis: One touch against Steelers

    Davis had two rushing yards on one carry Sunday against the Steelers. Charcandrick West dominated the backfield touches, rushing 22 times for 110 yards and a touchdown while also catching two passes on five targets for 19 receiving yards. The Chiefs appear firmly committed to letting West lead the backfield, which leaves Davis with minimal fantasy value.

    Chiefs' Knile Davis: Davis gets six touches versus Minnesota

    Davis carried the ball for 13 yards on five carries and snagged a 12-yard pass in Sunday's loss to Minnesota. Davis took a backseat to second-year back Charcandrick West in Jamaal Charles' first game out following a season-ending knee injury. Davis was Charles' primary backup in 2013 and 2014 and has managed to score 12 total touchdowns in a little over two seasons. His career yards-per-rush averaged of 3.39 may be contributing to West's first dibs at opportunities. The backfield situation in Kansas City will be one to monitor given their ball-control tendencies and it will be intersting to see whether Davis'experience and West's late-game fumble put Davis in the driver's seat come Week 7 against Pittsburgh.

    Chiefs RB Knile Davis could see added carries with Charles hurt

    With preliminary reports suggesting that Jamaal Charles suffered a torn ACL on Sunday, Knile Davis figures to be in line for an expanded role in the Chiefs' offense moving forward, the Kansas City Star reports. Assuming that Charles does indeed miss extended time, as expected, Charcandrick West and Davis are next up for the team's carries. With that in mind, coach Andy Reid noted in the wake of Charles' injury that the two would continue to split time, though it's worth noting that on Sunday, West finished the day with 31 yards on seven carries, while Davis carried the ball just twice for two yards. "I'm not saying who is or is not the feature guy, but we need both of them," Reid noted, with reference to the team's potential West/Davis backfield duo. "Both their games are different. We'll just see how that goes. You saw both of them played today, so we'll got back to the drawing board on that and get it right." While this fluid situation plays out, both West and Davis are worthy of serious pursuit in leagues where they remain available, with West perhaps the higher percentage play, at least based on Week 5's box score, but not necessarily a lock to dominate the team's carries, given Davis' previous experience filling in for Charles in the past.

    No touches for Chiefs RB Knile Davis in Week 4 loss to Bengals

    Chiefs running back Knile Davis didn't touch the ball Sunday against the Bengals. Davis didn't even see the field offensively for the Chiefs on Sunday, with workhorse Jamaal Charles taking 79 percent of the snaps. It's the second straight week that he's gone without an offensive snap, and it appears Davis will see little-to-no action unless Charles gets hurt.

    Chiefs running back Knile Davis returns to Monday's game

    Chiefs running back Knile Davis (ankle) returned to the field during Monday's game against Green Bay. He was considered questionable to return, but was back to receive a kickoff in the third quarter, so apparently it's nothing serious.

    Chiefs running back Knile Davis suffers ankle injury Monday

    Chiefs running back Knile Davis injured his ankle Monday night against the Packers and is questionable to return, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports. Davis didn't record a touch in the game, and Charcandrick West will presumably assume backup duties behind Jamaal Charles if needed. It seems unlikely that Davis will return to Monday's game with the Chiefs getting manhandled by Green Bay.

    Chiefs RB Knile Davis rushes for touchdown in loss to Broncos

    Chiefs running back Knile Davis picked up nine yards and a touchdown on three carries in Thursday's 31-24 loss to the Broncos. Jamaal Charles dominated the snaps and touches, but Davis vultured an eight-yard touchdown after his teammate carried the ball on four of the previous five plays. While still a valuable handcuff, Davis rarely sees the field unless Charles needs a quick breather.

    Chiefs RB Knile Davis claims talent equal to that of Charles

    Chiefs running back Knile Davis might be lacking in logic, but not in confidence. And one should not expect him to be accepting of the notion that his team can't afford to rest star backfield mate Jamaal Charles once the regular season rolls around. Davis has claimed to be every bit the talent. "I don't feel like there's a gap," he told Never mind that Charles has averaged 5.5 yards per carry over seven seasons and that Davis has managed 3.5 YPC in 205 career attempts. The latter is at least realistic about his current status. "He's the starter. It's his time. I'm waiting (until) my time," Davis said. He added that he does not doubt Charles can fulfull his goal to play another six seasons.
