Steelers released RB Knile Davis.

Davis drew a surprise start over backups Fitzgerald Toussaint and James Conner in Pittsburgh's third preseason game but ultimately didn't show enough to make the final 53. In addition to Le'Veon Bell, Toussaint and Conner, the Steelers may end up keeping Terrell Watson, who broke out for 173 rushing yards during the preseason.

Knile Davis delivered 21 yards on seven carries and snared 1-of-2 targets for nine yards Saturday in the Steelers’ preseason game against the Colts.

Davis was thought to be on the roster bubble but instead drew the start ahead of both James Conner and Fitzgerald Toussaint in Saturday’s dress rehearsal. He didn't show much, averaging a mere three yards per carry with a long of 11 yards. We’re not sure what to make of Pittsburgh’s backfield depth, though it won’t matter much with Le’Veon Bell playing a near every-down role.

Steelers signed RB Knile Davis to a one-year contract.

The Steelers, who have yet to re-sign free agent DeAngelo Williams, are beginning the process of collecting bodies behind Le'Veon Bell. Davis has become a full-blown journeyman, spending parts of 2016 with the Chiefs, Jets, Packers and then Chiefs again. Going on 26, Davis owns a career 3.22 YPC. He'll be far from assured of a spot on the 53-man roster.

Free agent RB Knile Davis is visiting the Steelers on Monday.

Free agent CB Coty Sensabaugh is also visiting. More name than game for quite some time, Davis was allowed to walk by the Chiefs. The Steelers, who have yet to re-sign free agent DeAngelo Williams, need depth behind Le'Veon Bell. Davis would still enter camp as a long-shot to crack the 53-man roster.

Chiefs declared RB Knile Davis, DL T.J. Barnes, QB Tyler Bray, LB Victor Ochi, OL Mike Person, TE Ross Travis and CB D.J. White inactive for Sunday's Divisional Round game against the Steelers.

Eric Berry (Achilles), Tamba Hali (knee), Justin Houston (knee) and Spencer Ware (rib) are all active. In fact, none of those four were even listed on the Chiefs' final injury report. Sunday's game was originally scheduled for 1:05 PM ET but was pushed back to 8:20 due to icy conditions in Kansas City.

Knile Davis turned three carries into 10 yards and reeled in his only target for seven yards Sunday in the Chiefs' Week 9 win over the Jaguars.

Back in Kansas City after a bizarre three-week adventure that included stops in Green Bay and East Rutherford, Davis worked as a change-of-pace back behind starter Charcandrick West. The Chiefs added him for depth with Jamaal Charles (knee, I.R.) and Spencer Ware (concussion) both sidelined. There’s a good chance he’ll be sent packing when Ware is cleared to play again.

Chiefs re-signed RB Knile Davis.

Kansas City needs depth at running back with Spencer Ware (concussion) out and Jamaal Charles (knee) on injured reserve. Davis is not a threat to Charcandrick West's workload this week, and he could end up back on the street once Ware gets healthy.
Sat, Nov 5, 2016 12:30:00 PM

Jets waived RB Knile Davis.

Were you even aware Davis was a Jet? Well now he's not. The Jets are the third team to give up on Davis in three weeks, and second in 36 hours. Gang Green did Davis dirty, but the fact is, he was never going to last long in New York. Davis is in the process of washing out of the league.
Tue, Nov 1, 2016 06:54:00 PM

Jets claimed RB Knile Davis off waivers from the Packers.

The Jets lack proven depth behind Matt Forte and Bilal Powell, but Davis isn't exactly proven, either. His stay in New York probably won't be much longer than his stay in Green Bay. Davis is a tease who is slowly washing out of the league.
Tue, Nov 1, 2016 04:24:00 PM

Packers waived RB Knile Davis.

The Chiefs will get nothing in return after the Packers gave them a conditional draft picks for Davis' rights two weeks ago. Davis wound up playing 13 snaps for Green Bay. As Jamaal Charles' knees continue to be problematic, we wouldn't be entirely shocked if Davis returned to K.C. behind Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West. Ware suffered a concussion in Sunday's win over Indianapolis.
Mon, Oct 31, 2016 04:25:00 PM

Knile Davis spanned four yards on three carries and caught both of his targets for four yards Sunday in the Packers' Week 8 loss to the Falcons.

Well, it’s more carries than he saw last week. Davis is one of only two healthy running backs on the Packers' active roster, but so far that hasn’t made much of a difference. We’re not counting on Davis to break out against the Colts in Week 9.
Sun, Oct 30, 2016 09:05:00 PM

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Knile Davis is "part of the game plan" this week.

"He's a natural football player, someone that's played a lot of football, was successful obviously in college and he's been in the league," McCarthy said. "He's very bright. He's making progress." Davis could play more than the five snaps he saw against the Bears, but the Packers should continue to rely on Ty Montgomery as their primary back in a pass-heavy attack. That makes Davis tough to trust even in a week with six teams on bye.

Knile Davis recorded just one yard on two carries Thursday in the Packers' Week 7 win over the Bears.

Davis was never expected to play much on Thursday after being traded to the Packers just two days earlier. Running backs (not including fullback Aaron Ripkowski) accounted for only four of the Packers’ 23 rushing attempts on Thursday night. Davis should have a better grasp of the offense by the time the Packers face Atlanta in Week 8.
Fri, Oct 21, 2016 12:45:00 AM

Following the loss of Eddie Lacy (ankle) for "several" weeks, newly-acquired Knile Davis is the only healthy running back on the Packers' 53-man roster.

Davis was acquired from the Chiefs on Tuesday morning. He fell out of favor in Kansas City and has been one of the least efficient backs in the league since coming into it as a 2013 third-rounder. We don't expect him to know enough of the offense to come in and dominate carries. Randall Cobb and Ty Montgomery played some running back in college, and both saw backfield snaps last week. Montgomery drew three carries and 12 targets. Davis should be stashed in 12-team leagues, but Montgomery is the preferred play for Week 7. If Lacy goes to I.R., practice squad RB Don Jackson will likely get a promotion.
