The Kansas City Chiefs have had a far from ideal start to the 2015 NFL season.
After losing three straight games on the bounce, Andy Reid's side would have been desperate to break that streak against a very beatable Chicago Bears team, especially with the game at Arrowhead Stadium.
But, the Chiefs managed to lose - despite Jay Cutler dropping the snap on the game-winning TD pass - and that wasn't even their worst news of the day. That came when Jamaal Charles went down with a very serious-looking injury, which has caused Kansas City to bring in a new body.

According to a report from Adam Teicher of ESPN.com, the Missouri-based franchise will be working out veteran running back Ben Tate tomorrow as they deal with the possibility that Charles could miss the rest of the 2015 campaign.
Tate was last seen with the Cleveland Browns where he was cut after failing to become a bell-cow back in Mike Pettine's offense, eventually losing his job to Isaiah Crowell.
Before that, Tate was a pretty decent back-up at the Houston Texans, where he played second fiddle to Arian Foster, and provided a nice change of pace when the Pro-Bowler got tired or injured.
After he was injured, replaced by rookies and subsequently cut from Cleveland, Tate bounced around a bit, filling in with the Vikings and Pittsburgh last year. He tried out for the Lions and Cowboys this offseason but didn't win himself a deal at either of those franchises.
