Chiefs RB Spencer Ware carted off with knee injury
The preseason hits keep coming Friday.
After New England lost Julian Edelman on a non-contact knee injury in the Patriots’ game against Detroit, the Kansas City Chiefs may also have suffered the loss of a key contributor. Running back Spencer Ware was carted off of the field in Kansas City’s game against Seattle.
He suffered a knee injury on a 6-yard pass reception from Alex Smith. Ware is listed as out for the remainder of the game.

Ware went head-up on the play with Seattle linebacker Terence Garvin.
Ware, who is 25, led the team in rushing last season and was the expected Day One starter. He totaled 921 yards on 214 carries in 2016.
The Chiefs don’t appear to have much depth in the backfield. Rookie third-round pick Kareem Hunt, Charcandrick West and veteran C.J. Spiller are the backups.
Carts are all the rage. Now Spencer Ware. Brutal. Obviously would push Kareem Hunt's value into top-20 if serious.

It wouldn’t be a surprise if the rest of the NFL went on alert and started resting all their stars now instead of only in Week Four of the preseason.
Spencer Ware carted off. Julian Edelman carted off. One day teams will listen to me & play starters players ZERO preseason minutes.
