Chiefs expect Spencer Ware to miss the season with knee injury

Kansas City Chiefs running back Spencer Ware is taken off the field on a cart after an injury during the first half of an NFL football preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks Friday Aug. 25 2017 in Seattle

The Kansas City Chiefs will have to play without running back Spencer Ware for some time after he suffered injuries to both his LCL and PCL, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

On Sunday morning, BJ Kissel of Chiefs.com reported the devastating news from the team's head athletic trainer Rick Burkholder.

"We'll miss Spencer, but we'll be ok at running back", said Andy Reid. But Burkholder said Ware also damaged the lateral collateral ligament, and the combination of injuries will likely require surgery.

Ware will try to get a second opinion but his chances of playing in 2017 aren't looking good. That kind of injury would only have had a recovery time of around two to eight weeks.

Ware injured his knee in the Chiefs' 26-13 preseason loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Friday night. The 25-year-old rusher has spent each of the last two seasons in Kansas City and initially broke into the professional ranks of the National Football League back in 2013 as a member of the Seattle Seahawks.

Reid said that third-round pick Kareem Hunt will start the season opener against the New England Patriots on September 7.
