Kansas City Chiefs running back Isiah Pacheco, who is questionable for Week 3 against the Chicago Bears with a hamstring injury, is expected to play on Sunday, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

This is great news for the Chiefs, as Pacheco has been the team’s top running back since the middle of last season. Here’s everything you need to know about his injury for Week 3:

Isiah Pacheco is questionable for Week 3, but he is expected to play barring a setback in pre-game warm ups.

After scoring five times last season in limited action, Pacheco has yet to find the end zone in the 2023 campaign despite seeing 25 touches across the Chiefs’ first two games. 

I think that could change against a Bears team that is going to be significantly outmatched and allows the third most yards per play in the NFL this season. 

I expect Pacheco to get a heavy workload if Kansas City goes up big, so I’ll gladly take him at plus money to find the end zone in Week 3.
