Chiefs' Spencer Ware (shoulder) placed on IR

Kansas City Chiefs running back Spencer Ware has been placed on IR with a shoulder injury.

What It Means:

Ware's injured shoulder will keep him from seeing the field any more for the Chiefs this season. Following his return to the team, Ware mixed into the backfield rotation for three weeks but was largely ineffective. In his absence, the Chiefs will move forward with Damien Williams, rookie Darwin Thompson, and LeSean McCoy, who was inactive in Week 16, at running back. Defensive lineman Xavier Williams was activated from IR to fill Ware's roster spot.

Ware will finish his 2019 season with 17 carries for 51 yards and 5 receptions for 22 yards in three games played.
