He shifted, juked, and blazed his way to the Chiefs’ all-time rushing yards leader.
Five times he rushed for more than 1,000 yards with a career-high 1,509 in 2012. At 5’11, 199 pounds, there was always sway in his running and force, too. Even now, with nearly 7,500 career rushing yards, he is also the NFL’s all-time leader in average rushing yards gained (5.4) per carry.
He tore up his left knee in 2011 and overcame that surgery. He ripped his right one in 2015 and could not rise above it in Kansas City’s thinking. The Chiefs released him last February.
(Chiefs head coach) Andy (Reid) called me in and told me that I would be a Chief for life as far as he was concerned and he was pretty emotional about it, Charles said. We still talk.
The teams are far behind the league office. Numbers for both people of color and women declined in the important category of team senior administrators. The percent of people of color decreased from 18.7 percent in 2016 to 18.2 percent in 2017. Women held 20.0 percent of the senior administrator positions during the 2017 NFL season, which was a decrease of one percentage point from 2016.
It was an impressive performance by two good football teams and just came down to who had the last possession.
Alex Smith was excellent again with 293 passing yards and 56 rushing yards, and Kirk Cousins wasn’t far behind with 227 passing and 38 rushing.
The Chiefs have been rolling to start the year, but Washington made it clear on the first drive that it came to Kansas City meaning business. On a six-play touchdown drive, Cousins got Washington on the board with a deep shot to Pryor.
The quarterback-turned-receiver signed a one-year, $6 million contract with Washington in March, but hasn’t done much. The touchdown over Marcus Peters was his first with the team and finally a sign that he can make an impact.
