by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer (7/21/14) The Chiefs will begin full-squad training camp on Thursday without running back Joe McKnight and defensive back David Van Dyke, reports ESPN.
McKnight (knee) and Van Dyke (hamstring) will begin on the physically unable to participate list. McKnight is a candidate to make the regular-season roster. With a strong showing both out of the backfield and as a kick returner, McKnight could win a spot as a backup to Jamaal Charles and Knile Davis.

Joe McKnight on his way to Green Bay
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com (8/30/13) Veteran running back Joe McKnight was not out of work long. Four days after being cut by the Jets, he tweeted that he is headed to the Packers on Saturday, reports NBC Sports.
McKnight performed well in limited duty in three years with the Jets. He averaged 4.5 yards per carry in 112 attempts.
The season-ending knee injury to DuJuan Harris will allow him to fill a spot in the backfield while playing a role as a kick returner.
Joe McKnight is hoping to revive his career with the Chiefs this season. He did not play in 2013 after being cut by the Jets in training camp, and he has been a disappointment since entering the season in 2010. McKnight could help the Chiefs on special teams, but his offensive touches will be limited if he makes the final roster. Ignore him in all leagues on Draft Day.
