The Kansas City Chiefs are in the market for a new running back after releasing Kareem Hunt late last week, and according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, that guy will probably be C.J. Anderson.

Anderson will come in early this week for a workout with the hope to sign him as long as everything goes well. The Chiefs know Anderson well as he spent the early part of his career with the Denver Broncos. Last year, Anderson ran for 1,007 yards before being released in April.

Anderson was then signed by the Carolina Panthers during the offseason and appeared in the first 10 games before being released.

Spencer Ware got the first crack at the starting job on Sunday against the Oakland Raiders and although he played decently, he wasn't spectacular finishing the game rushing 14 times for 47 yards and one touchdown.

The Chiefs released Hunt after a video surfaced of him pushing and kicking a woman from February in Cleveland. After Sunday's game, coach Andy Reid admitted it was a tough decision to release him, but also the right one.

“Those kinds of things are never easy,” Reid said via ESPN.

“I don't want to get anything to distract from how tough a place this is to play [and] my locker room leadership overcoming the situation we had there, which can be a distraction, and [they] stepped up today in a place that we haven't always come out with this kind of result.'

The Chiefs next game is on Sunday when they take on the Baltimore Ravens.
