Running backs coach Eric Bieniemy talked about the primary back up to Jamaal Charles, rookie Knile Davis. When asked if anything was holding him back, Eric had this to say:
“I don’t think anything has been holding Knile back, probably more than anything it’s been Jamaal (Charles). Knile (Davis) is doing an outstanding job, and obviously, me as a coach, as his position coach and us as a staff, we have to get him involved a little more. He’s made the progress that we’ve counted on. It’s just getting him in the mix and just placing him out there.”
Going forward, Knile may have to carry a bit more of the load as the Cheifs move towards the playoffs. Having a phenomenal record will do nothing if the Chiefs can’t win in the post season and without their running game, they won’t win.
