With Jamaal Charles suffering a torn ACL in Week 5, Ware served as the power half of KC's running back duo for much of 2015. Charles seems to be ahead of schedule and should be ready by Week 1, but if not, the Chiefs' backfield will be in good hands with Ware and West. According to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, Ware's extension includes a $1 million signing bonus.
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.
Spencer Ware (ankle) is listed as active Saturday in New England, BJ Kissel of the Kansas City 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.
Spencer 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 Kansas City Chiefs ' inactive list is released Saturday afternoon.
Spencer 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.
