Chiefs-49ers snap counts: Knile Davis plays 7 snaps after 2 straight 100-yard games

Running down the list of snap counts in the Chiefs 22-17 loss to the 49ers.

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.
