Draft Scout *Knile Davis News
09/02/16 - RB Knile Davis got half the playing time at running back on Thursday night in the Chiefs' game against Green Bay. He finished with 58 yards on 14 carries and a touchdown. In the four preseason games, he ran for 104 yards on 20 carries. Davis averaged 32 yards on two kickoff returns. For the first time in his four years with the Chiefs, Davis' roster spot is in question, as he must wait for the roster cutdown to 53 players.
05/26/16 - RB Knile Davis remains on the roster, after the Chiefs worked the NFL personnel vines earlier in the offseason trying to deal the fourth-year man out of Arkansas. Davis is currently the No. 3 running back behind Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware. He will be No. 4 when Jamaal Charles returns after completing his rehab from knee surgery last fall. "He's handled it well," head coach Andy Reid said of Davis. "He comes out here every day and busts his tail. He works in with the ones, we have no problem working him in there. It's no big deal."
01/20/16 - RB Knile Davis began the season as the No. 2 running back, but barely got on the field after Jamaal Charles went down.
01/10/16 - RB Knile Davis returned the opening kickoff 106 yards for a touchdown on Saturday, the second-longest kickoff return in NFL postseason history and the fifth to open a playoff game. Jacoby Jones returned a kickoff 108 yards for a score against the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII. "When I saw the ball in the air, I saw the coverage, I knew that they weren't on me yet. I was like, 'This is a good opportunity to do something, make something happen, and when I went left, I saw it split like the Red Sea and I took it to the house from there."
11/16/15 - RB Knile Davis was a healthy scratch for the first time in his three-year career. The former third-round selection in the 2013 NFL Draft has been slowly falling out of the Chiefs' offensive picture this season. In the first half of the season, he had 21 carries for 51 yards and caught two passes for 24 yards. "We ended up putting Knile down but it's not because we don't believe in Knile," said coach Andy Reid. "That's not what it is at all. We're trying to boost our special teams a little bit so we moved Saalim Hakim up (from the practice squad.) We needed some speed we felt on the outside."
