Chiefs will keep feeding Kareem Hunt, coach Andy Reid says

KC Chiefs rookie running back Kareem Hunt, who became the first NFL player to record a touchdown of 50 yards or more in each of his first three games, has rushed 47 times for 401 yards — an absurd 8.5-yard average — and four touchdowns. Chiefs coach Andy Reid said he’s not considering reducing Hunt’s carries.

Royals’ Ned Yost won’t stop Alcides Escobar from playing all 162 games

KC Royals manager Ned Yost said Monday that he may rest some of his regulars this week as the club finishes its season with a six-game homestand against the Detroit Tigers and Arizona Diamondbacks. Shortstop Alcides Escobar won’t be among them. Barring injury, Escobar will be the first Royals player to play 162 games in three seasons. No other Royal has done it more than once.

Pick-happy defense, Kareem Hunt help Chiefs put away Chargers

The streak continues. Thanks to a pick-happy defense –– one that also found a way to consistently get off the field on third down, despite a largely-dormant pass rush –– and one big run by burgeoning rookie star Kareem Hunt, the KC Chiefs managed to remain undefeated and topple the Los Angeles Chargers for the seventh straight time on Sunday in a 24-10 victory at the StubHub Center.
