  • Chiefs' Derrick Gore: Role fluctuates in 2021

    Gore finished the 2021 campaign with 51 rushes for 256 yards and a pair of touchdowns while reeling in eight of his nine targets for 105 yards.

    Gore's role changed over the course of the year depending on the health of Kansas City's other backs. He recorded 22 carries for 110 yards and caught four passes for 69 yards over the final three weeks of the regular season. He enters the offseason as an exclusive rights free agent, so he will likely be back with the team next season.

  • Chiefs' Derrick Gore: Splits lead role

    Gore recorded seven carries for 30 yards in Saturday's 28-24 win over Denver.

    Gore tied for the team lead with seven carries after Darrel Williams (toe) was forced out of the game early. In Williams' absence, Gore took over as the lead back on the ground, though his longest rush of the day went for only six yards. Meanwhile, Jerick McKinnon served as the change-of-pace back, tallying five carries and three receptions while also working more efficiently than Gore. Should Williams and Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) be sidelined for any part of Kansas City's playoff run, Gore would likely continue to get the majority of the work on the ground with McKinnon serving as the pass catcher out of the backfield.

  • Chiefs' Derrick Gore: Just four touches in Week 17

    Gore rushed three times for 37 yards and caught his only target for eight yards in Sunday's 34-31 loss to the Bengals.

    Despite Clyde Edwards-Helaire's (shoulder) absence, Gore got just four touches while Darrel Williams racked up over 100 yards and two touchdowns on his 17 touches. Even if Edwards-Helaire remains sidelined against the Broncos in Week 18, Gore may not see many opportunities behind Williams as the Chiefs try to secure the lone first-round bye in the AFC.

  • Chiefs' Derrick Gore: Productive off bench

    Gore ran for 43 yards on 12 carries and caught three passes for 61 yards on three targets against Pittsburgh on Sunday.

    Gore saw more usage than usual due to starter Clyde Edwards-Helaire suffering a collarbone/shoulder injury, and it wasn't immediately clear after the game how severe that injury might be. If Edwards-Helaire misses time then Gore would compete with Darrel Williams for the remaining usage, with Williams likely the favorite to get the first shot. Even if Gore is technically behind Williams, though, a workload split between the two could be necessary if Edwards-Helaire can't play against the Bengals in Week 17.

  • Chiefs' Derrick Gore: Absent from offense in Week 15

    Gore didn't log an offensive snap in Thursday's game against the Chargers.

    Gore's workload had fluctuated in recent weeks, but he wasn't part of the offensive game plan in any capacity Thursday with both Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Darrel Williams available. It's unlikely that will change much moving forward as long as the pair are both available.

  • Chiefs' Derrick Gore: Produces in garbage time

    Gore recorded nine rushes for 66 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 48-9 win over Las Vegas. He added two receptions for 23 yards.

    Gore had only one carry and one target at halftime, though he got extended run in the final two quarters with Kansas City comfortably ahead. He recorded the team's longest gain of the day on a 51-yard rush to the end zone in the middle of the fourth quarter. Gore is likely to serve as the Chiefs' third running back moving forward, but this type of workload shouldn't be projected for what figures to be a closer matchup in Week 15 against Los Angeles.

  • Chiefs' Derrick Gore: Won't play Sunday

    Gore (coach's decision) is inactive Sunday against the Cowboys, Adam Teicher of reports.

    Gore won't be needed for now with the return of Clyde Edwards-Helaire (knee). Gore chipped in 10-plus snaps of offense each of the last three weeks, netting 20 carries for 80 yards and a touchdown. He'll likely need another injury to the Chiefs backfield to see the field again this season.

  • Chiefs' Derrick Gore: Gets involved late

    Gord tallied six carries for 19 yards during Sunday's blowout win over the Raiders.

    While Gore saw a slight bump in his playing time from the three carries he saw last week versus the Packers, the majority of his work came during the second half of a blowout contest. He's still well behind Darrel Williams in terms of carry share, and he's also got Jerick McKinnon to contend with for touches. His opportunities figure to be diluted even more soon with Clyde Edwards-Helaire (knee) nearing a return.

  • Chiefs' Derrick Gore: Just three carries in Week 9

    Gore ran for 14 yards on three rushes and reeled in his lone target for six yards Sunday versus the Packers.

    Gore didn't see anywhere near the involvement in Week 9 that he saw the contest prior, when he logged 11 touches. Gore is still firmly behind Darrel Williams in the pecking order and figures to fall further down the depth chart once Clyde Edwards-Helaire is ready to return from injured reserve.
