Kansas City Chiefs running back Spencer Ware is likely finished for the season after he tore the posterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in Friday night's preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks.

The Chiefs head athletic trainer Rick Burkholder announced some pessimistic information about their starting running back on Sunday. Spencer Ware suffered a torn PCL and other damage to his knee and isn't expected to play at all in 2017.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported earlier Saturday the issue could keep him out anywhere from two to eight weeks, via Adam Teicher of ESPN. But Burkholder said Ware also damaged the lateral collateral ligament, and the combination of injuries will likely require surgery.

The 25-year-old Ware rushed for a team-high 921 yards last season. He'll get a second opinion, but in all likelihood, Ware will go under the knife. Chiefs coach Andy Reid said rookie Kareem Hunt would be "the next man up" if Ware were to miss games, though Reid did also mention his preference for rotating players in the backfield.
