Atlanta's early dominance of possession meant the Kansas City first-string offense only got about 10 minutes of field time despite playing the entire first half. Hunt actually had some decent gains on the ground, but a loss of eight yards sabotaged his final rushing line. He also had a seven-yard carry wiped out by a holding penalty and a two-yard touchdown reception nullified by an illegal-formation penalty. Hunt appeared to play nearly every snap in the first half, staying on the field for passing downs and goal-to-go situations.

<![CDATA[Preparing to play first half Friday]]> Coach Andy Reid said Tuesday that Hunt will play the entire first half of Friday's preseason game against the Falcons, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Hunt rushed just one time for one yard and caught one pass for four yards in the preseason opener against the Texans. With a hefty workload on the horizon, Hunt is a stellar DFS option coming off a rookie campaign where he accrued 272 carries for 1,327 yards (4.9 YPC) and eight touchdowns. He also caught 53 passes for 455 yards and three scores. Friday's game will also be the first opportunity to see how Hunt and second-year QB Patrick Mahomes jell.
