Andy Reid says Chiefs trusting Knile Davis more


Kansas City Chiefs running back Knile Davis go 11 carries in last week’s game against the Washington Redskins. They were a season high for him, and he scored on a 17-yard run early in the fourth quarter. Davis is gaining the trust of Chiefs head coach Andy Reid.

“I just think it’s a matter of reps under his belt and production,” Reid said, via the Kansas City Star. “It’s getting used to the NFL, protections in particular. I think everybody’s got quite a bit of trust in him to go out there and do a good job.”

The Chiefs pulled running back Jamaal Charles in the game with a big lead.

“I thought it was the right time,” to take him out of the game, Reid said. “I’ve gone both ways, I’ve held people from games, and I’ve played people, just depending on what I feel we need to get ourselves ready, if we have that opportunity to continue to play (in the playoffs).

“We’re not there yet. I wasn’t thinking about that in this game.”
