Ware (hamstring) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Patriots.
Ware, who last suited up Dec. 9, thus is available this weekend, but he figures to work in a complementary role behind Damien Williams, whose strong play in Ware's absence has earned him top billing in the Chiefs' ground game at this stage of the team's campaign.
Ware (hamstring) practiced fully Thursday.
We'll have to see if Ware graduating to full practice participation after being limited Wednesday leads to him heading into Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Patriots minus an injury designation, but even if he does suit up this weekend, we'd expect the running back to work in a complementary role behind Damien Williams, whose recent strong play has earned him top billing in the Kansas City backfield.
Ware (hamstring) practiced in a limited fashion Wednesday.
Ware logged limited practices last week as well before sitting out Saturday's divisional-round win over the Colts. Even if Ware is made active for this weekend's AFC Championship Game against the Patriots, he would likely work in a complementary role. Damien Williams has thrived since taking over lead duties out of the Kansas City backfield in Week 15 and shouldn't be in line for a major reduction in touches if Ware suits up.
Ware (hamstring) is listed as inactive Saturday against the Colts, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.
A limited practice participant during divisional-round prep, Ware did not emerge favorably from a pregame warmup and thus will miss a fourth consecutive contest. Expect Damien Williams to earn the bulk of the backfield work, which translated to 322 yards from scrimmage and four touchdowns during Ware's first three absences. Further down the depth chart, Darrel Williams and Charcandrick West are on hand to spell the other Williams.
Ware (hamstring) is expected to work out pre-game to determine his availability for Saturday's divisional-round game against the Colts, but expectations are not high regarding his game-time status, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
This seems to echo the chatter regarding Ware's status throughout the week, as the running back only managed to put together limited practices Tuesday and Wednesday. With a forecast likely signaling sloppy conditions, a balky hamstring could limit Ware's effectiveness were he to take the field Saturday, but at least for the moment, his status appears to be more of a game-time decision. If Ware were to sit out, Damien Williams would be tasked with carrying the majority of the load, with Darrel Williams expected to handle the backup duties.
