When the Kansas City Chiefs take the field for a crucial AFC battle against the Baltimore Ravens, they will be without starting running back Damien Williams.

Kansas City ruled Williams out after he missed three consecutive days of practice this week following a knee injury that forced him to leave in Week 2 against the Oakland Raiders.

Williams struggled against the Raiders with only eight rushing yards on nine carries, though he added 48 receiving yards on three receptions.

LeSean McCoy will likely slide in as Kansas City’s starting running back during Williams’ absence. McCoy is averaging five yards per rush attempt this season on 21 carries, but has yet to find the end zone.
