Kansas City Chiefs running back Knile Davis didn't touch the ball Sunday against the Cincinnati 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.
He was considered questionable to return, but was back to receive a kickoff in the third quarter, so apparently it's nothing serious.
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.
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.
Davis has claimed to be every bit the talent. "I don't feel like there's a gap," he told ESPN.com.
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.
