Spencer Ware rushed 19 times for 114 yards and one touchdown in the Chiefs' Week 12 win over the Bills.
He added three catches but turned them into one yard. With Charcandrick West (hamstring) out, Ware got the start and handled 22-of-23 backfield touches. It looked like it was going to be a slow day for Ware early, as the Bills were moving the ball all over the Chiefs' defense, but things settled down and Ware got his work. He ran extremely hard, especially on an impressive second-quarter drive that featured Ware. He had back-to-back forward-charging runs of 16 and 13 yards before later finishing off the series with a three-yard touchdown. Hamstring injuries can linger, so we'll have to keep an eye on West this week before Week 13 against the Raiders. Nov 29 - 5:21 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Spencer Ware will start Sunday against the Bills.

According to Rapoport, Charcandrick West (hamstring, questionable) is a "long-shot" to play, though he's still pushing to get on the field. Knile Davis will be active Sunday after being a healthy scratch the last two games. Ware was dominant in the second half of last week's win over San Diego and the Chiefs might look to run more than usual with rain in the forecast. He's a solid RB2.
Nov 29 - 9:28 AM

Spencer Ware rushed 11 times for 96 yards and two touchdowns and caught his only target for five yards in the Chiefs' Week 11 win over the Chargers.

Charcandrick West left with a hamstring injury early in the third quarter, opening the door for power-back Ware to see his first extended action of the season. He didn’t disappoint. Ware’s garbage time escapades included a pair of goal-line touchdowns and a magnificent 52-yard run. The severity of West’s injury remains unclear but if he has to miss time, Ware would probably flirt with RB1 status at the most injury-riddled position in fantasy. He deserves to be a popular pickup on waivers this week.

Chiefs promoted RB Spencer Ware from the practice squad.

Ware's lone three career carries came for the Seahawks in 2013. Ware will slot in behind Charcandrick West, Knile Davis and De'Anthony Thomas in the absence of Jamaal Charles. A violent between-the-tackles runner with some surprising pass-game chops, Ware is worth monitoring in especially deep leagues.

Chiefs waived RB Spencer Ware.

A fullback/tailback tweener, Ware spent Chiefs camp primarily playing tailback, and didn't embarrass himself. He scored a touchdown in the preseason finale. Unfortunately, Ware was outplayed by Charcandrick West behind Jamaal Charles and Knile Davis. Darrin Reaves also remains on the roster -- for now.

Free agent RB Spencer Ware was arrested early Tuesday morning on suspicion of DUI.

Ware was booked into jail in Kent, Washington at 3:21 AM. No other details are available. It's Ware's second DUI arrest in nine months; he was busted in January but had the charges dropped in July. Ware was part of Seattle's final cuts over the weekend. The 2013 sixth-rounder tried to make the switch from fullback.

Seahawks waived RB Spencer Ware, TE RaShaun Allen, CB Akeem Auguste, RB Demitrius Bronson, WR Arceto Clark, QB B.J. Daniels, G Caylin Hauptmann, T Nate Isles, C Patrick Lewis, WR Chris Matthews, DE Benson Mayowa, S Terrance Parks, TE Morrell Presley, DT Andru Pulu, FB Kiero Small, DT Jimmy Staten, S Steven Terrell, LB Korey Toomer and WR Bryan Walters.

Ware, a 2013 sixth-rounder, tried to make the move from fullback to tailback. But with the Seahawks only keeping three backs (Marshawn Lynch, Robert Turbin, Christine Michael), he never had a shot. Interestingly, the Seahawks chose to keep seven wide receivers -- a group which includes former UDFA Phil Bates. B.J. Daniels is a practice squad candidate.

Seahawks RB Spencer Ware has nine carries for 28 yards through three preseason games.

He's added two catches for 13 yards. Most troubling for his roster chances, Ware worked behind someone named Demitrius Bronson in Friday's preseason game, as well as Marshawn Lynch, Christine Michael, and Robert Turbin. A 2013 sixth-rounder out of LSU, Ware's odds of making the 53 seem bleak.
Sat, Aug 23, 2014 12:42:00 PM

According to the Seattle Times, Spencer Ware "appears basically just a tailback now" after working at fullback last offseason.

A second-year hammerhead power back out of LSU, Ware's reps have increased with Marshawn Lynch holding out. His running style is more similar to Lynch's than Christine Michael or Robert Turbin. Expected to make the Seahawks' 53-man roster, 22-year-old Ware is worth a stash in deeper Dynasty leagues.

DUI charges against Seahawks FB/RB Spencer Ware have been dismissed.

The 2013 sixth-round pick was popped for DUI in January. On Friday, a judge ruled the arresting officer "lacked reasonable suspicion of DUI at the time he initiated the traffic stop." A favorite of Rookie Scouting Portfolio's Matt Waldman coming out of LSU, Ware figures to see more carries this preseason after spending last year at fullback. He's a deep sleeper in a deep backfield.

Seahawks FB Spencer Ware's pre-trial hearing for DUI is set for March 3.

Ware was arrested in the early morning the day after the Seahawks' Divisional Round win over the Saints. Ware allegedly blew a .124 and a .122 after preforming poorly on a field sobriety test. This arrest certainly does not help his roster chances in 2014.

KING News 5 in Seattle reports Seahawks FB Spencer Ware was arrested for DUI early Sunday.

Placed on injured reserve with an ankle injury in October, Ware was a sixth-round pick out of LSU. Jail records show Ware was booked into jail at 1:56 AM, and released at 4:23 AM after posting $1,000 bond. The arrest won't help Ware's 2014 roster chances. He is a fullback-tailback hybrid.

Seahawks placed RB Spencer Ware on injured reserve with an ankle injury, ending his season.

Ware had been sidelined since Week 2. With Derrick Coleman (hamstring) also ailing, the Seahawks had to clear a roster spot for Michael Robinson, who was re-signed on Tuesday. Ware was the No. 194 pick of April's draft. He'll be back to compete for a roster spot next summer.

Seahawks declared RB Spencer Ware (ankle) inactive for Sunday's Week 3 game against the Jaguars.

Ware sustained a sprain late in the Week 2 win over the 49ers. It means Christine Michael is active. The rest of the Seahawks inactives: DB Jeron Johnson, LB Malcolm Smith, DL D'Anthony Smith, DL Benson Mayowa and DL Jordan Hill.

Seahawks rookie RB/FB Spencer Ware suffered a "significant" ankle sprain on the final play of Sunday's Week 2 win over the 49ers.

Ware, the No, 194 overall pick, played seven snaps in the victory after sitting on the sidelines for the entire season opener in Carolina. If he's going to be sidelined for upwards of a month, the Seahawks may just place him on I.R.
