With the Kansas City Chiefs losing to the San Francisco 49ers, you know there will be questions about who played and how much they played. And after looking at the snap counts, indeed there are questions.
We'll get our weekly "Why isn't Travis Kelce playing more?" question out of the way. Because why isn't he playing more? He was in on close to 60 percent of the snaps but there were 21 plays in the game in which Kelce was not involved. With the Chiefs missing Donnie Avery, I wonder why Kelce wasn't involved even more.
Also of note is that Knile Davis, who is coming off two straight 100-yard games, played just seven snaps on offense.
Defensively, the Chiefs got Kevin Vickerson involved more. He is a good run-stopping defensive lineman and with the 49ers running the ball quite a bit, Vickerson picked up a season-high 25 snaps.
- Donald Stephenson did not play in this game.
- De'Anthony Thomas touched the ball once on offense -- it was a touchdown.
- Junior Hemingway was involved early with four catches for 50 yards. But didn't do much after that.
- Cyrus Gray fractured his hand in the loss.
- Donnie Avery did not play. AJ Jenkins had 33 snaps in his absence.
- Demetrius Harris, who comes in on three tight end sets, played seven snaps.
- One of Dee Ford's six snaps was this bizarre play.
- Tamba Hali continues to get take a few snaps off each game. He missed 14 in this game.
- Dontari Poe, who manhandled Alex Boone on one play, missed 12 snaps.
- The 49ers ran the ball more so Chris Owens didn't see a lot of snaps. He was hurt late in the game.
