Williams (hamstring) isn't practicing Wednesday, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports.

Williams is trending in the wrong direction for Sunday's tilt against the Patriots. He would likely need to resume practicing in some capacity Thursday or Friday to have a legitimate chance of playing Week 14, and his expected absence likely factored into the Chiefs' decision to sign Spencer Ware for extra backfield depth Tuesday. With Damien Williams (ribs) also not practicing to begin the week, the Chiefs could enter the matchup with New England with only LeSean McCoy, Darwin Thompson and Ware on hand at running back.
