Williams (ribs) has a shot to play in Sunday's game against the Patriots, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.

Williams may have a chance to suit up, but the Chiefs' recent signing of Spencer Ware suggests that's far from a sure thing. The team now has five running backs on the 53-man roster, with Darrel Williams nursing a hamstring injury while Ware joins LeSean McCoy and Darwin Thompson among the healthy group. Damien Williams injured his ribs in Week 11 and was inactive for the Week 13 win over Oakland, unable to take advantage of the extra time to recover during a Week 12 bye. Prior to the injury, Damien had re-emerged as the leader of the backfield, playing 73 percent of snaps in back-to-back games Weeks 9 and 10. The initial injury report for Week 14 will be released later Wednesday.
