As expected, the Chiefs brought in running backs Ben Tate and Pierre Thomas for tryouts on Tuesday. They were hardly alone.

In all, the Chiefs worked out seven running backs and 14 total players on Tuesday.

Per a league source, the running backs were George Atkinson, Bryce Brown, Bronson Hill, Isaiah Pead, Darrin Reaves (pictured), Ben Tate, and Pierre Thomas.

Also getting workouts were linebacker Jayson DiManche, defensive backs Saalim Hakim and Brandon McGee, guard Michael Liedtke, and defensive ends Steven Means, Greg Scruggs, and Quanterus Smith.

Reaves was signed to the practice squad at tailback, and Hakim, Liedtke, and DiManche getting practice-squad spots, too. Running back Spencer Ware was elevated from the practice squad to the active roster to replace Jamaal Charles.
