Ware's status for the beginning of training camp is still uncertain after he injured multiple knee ligaments during 2017 preseason

Summary

Ware tore his PCL and LCL late in the 2017 preseason, coasting him the year and the starting job. A powerful runner with good short-area quickness, Ware was the best passing-down back on the roster before he got hurt. The Chiefs added competent passing-down specialists Damien and Kerwynn Williams to the roster in case Ware cannot return to form this summer. When healthy Ware has the talent and experience to earn playing time at Kareem Hunt's expense -- especially on passing downs and in the red zone. Look for him to earn these roles in 2018 if his knee is ready. If not, Damien Williams has the edge to back up Hunt. If healthy and called upon to be the lead back, Ware is capable of fantasy starter upside. It's best to consider Ware's readiness with a healthy dose of skepticism until he's cleared for full practices and looking like his old self. (May 12)
