    Chiefs' Darrel Williams: Logs six carries in preseason loss

    Darrel Williams rushed six times for 25 yards and wasn't targeted in the passing game during the Kansas City Chiefs' 17-7 preseason loss to the Steelers on Saturday.Williams paced the Chiefs backfield in carries on the night and did a serviceable job with his opportunities. Fellow backs Carlos Hyde (5-23) and Darwin Thompson (4-30) were solid as well, so the competition for two potential backup running back slots behind presumed starter Damien Williams remains relatively heated. Williams will look to continue making his case in Saturday's third preseason tilt versus the 49ers.

    Chiefs' Darrel Williams: In mix for backup duties

    Darrel Williams remains a candidate for the top backup duties behind Damien Williams (hamstring), Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports.Darrel rushed just 13 times all of last season, but he's seen plenty of reps in fall camp while Damien has been on the sidelines. The former Williams could gain some marginal fantasy value should he secure the backup spot and has proven he can offer some utility in the passing game as well, notching 23 receptions as a senior at LSU in 2017.

    Chiefs' Darrel Williams: Facing backup competition

    Darrel Williams shared backfield reps with Damien Williams, Carlos Hyde and Darwin Thompson during the offseason program, Blair Kerkhoff of The Kansas City Star reports.Darrel Williams caught on as an undrafted rookie last year and had a late-season stretch as the Kansas City Chiefs' No. 2 running back after Kareem Hunt was cut and Spencer Ware was injured. Both players found new teams in the offseason, but Kansas City brought in Hyde and Thompson to compete for depth roles, leaving Darrel Williams on the roster bubble ahead of training camp. Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy has already named Damien Williams as the starter.

    Chiefs' Darrel Williams: No touches in AFC Championship Game

    Darrel Williams played 20 snaps -- all on special teams -- Sunday in the Kansas City Chiefs' 37-31 overtime loss to the Patriots in the AFC Championship Game.The undrafted rookie out of LSU had been acting as the top backup to Damien Williams since Week 15 against the Chargers but dropped to third on the depth chart Sunday with Spencer Ware cleared to return from a hamstring injury. Ware will become an unrestricted free agent in March and is no lock to be re-signed, potentially paving the way for Darrel Williams to reclaim a more prominent role behind Damien in 2019. Even if Ware isn't retained, however, there's still a decent likelihood that the Chiefs will address their running-back room via trade, free agency or the draft.

    Chiefs' Darrel Williams: Logs career-high carries

    Darrel Williams rushed a career-high 11 times for 31 yards in Week 17 against the Raiders.Nearly all of Wiliams' work came late in a blowout, so there is very little to take away from the fact that he split carries with Damien Williams evenly on the day. He should serve as a backup in the playoffs and should be in the running to retain a spot as a depth option again in 2019.

    Chiefs' Darrel Williams: Week 17 status in question

    Darrel Williams (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's contest against the Raiders.Williams made an abbreviated exit last Sunday at Seattle due to a hamstring injury. Although he proceeded to practice in full Wednesday through Friday, the Kansas City Chiefs opted to place a "questionable" tag on the reserve running back. Spencer Ware (hamstring) is in the exact same boat as he attempts to return from a two-game absence. If Ware is active, he could take on the largest share of the work given to the backfield, leaving the Williamses (also, Damien) the occasional touch.

    Chiefs' Darrel Williams: Appears healthy for Week 17

    Darrel Williams (hamstring) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.Williams injured his hamstring during Sunday's 38-31 loss to the Seahawks, leaving Damien Williams and Charcandrick West as the only options at running back. With Spencer Ware (hamstring) also managing a full practice to start the week, it appears the Kansas City Chiefs will have a healthy backfield for the regular-season finale against the Raiders. The undrafted rookie out of LSU probably won't be a big piece of the equation unless there's garbage-time work in the fourth quarter.
