West carried the ball just once in Thursday's regular-season opener against the Patriots, but he that tote went for 21 yards and a touchdown. He also added a catch on his only target of the night for four yards.
As one of just two running backs currently on the Chiefs' roster, West would be the obvious candidate to replace Kareem Hunt in the backfield should he suffer an injury. However, it appears coach Andy Reid is comfortable allowing the rookie to take on a workhorse role for the team, limiting West to value mainly as a handcuff with upside if given an opportunity.

- Chiefs offensive coordinator Matt Nagy suggested West, Kareem Hunt and C.J. Spiller will all have roles in Thursday's regular-season opener against New England, ESPN.com's Adam Teicher reports. "These guys are all prepared," Nagy said. "They're all prepared to play. They all know they're a big part of this game plan."
- West should see some extra regular-season reps out of the backfield with Spencer Ware (knee) sidelined indefinitely, Adam Teicher of ESPN reports.
- West ran three times for a lost yard and caught three passes for nine yards in Friday's preseason loss to Seattle. All Charcandrick West News
