Chiefs keep leaning on McKinnon, other unsung players

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Jerick McKinnon probably shouldn't have been surprised to spend all season buried on the Chiefs depth chart.

Start with those early years in Minnesota, when he backed up Adrian Peterson. An injury to the star running back gave McKinnon a chance, only for the Vikings to give Matt Asiata the starting nod the following week.
