The Kansas City Chiefs are fresh off a Super Bowl title, but they have plenty of work to do with less than a month until the season kicks off.
Some of their top offensive players have been recovering from various injuries, leaving them questionable for the upcoming year.
However, as Adam Schefter has recently reported, both Isiah Pacheco and Kadarius Toney are in-line to start Week 1, per Pro Football Wire.

Pacheco was a seventh-round pick in the 2022 NFL Draft but was able to contribute in year one.
In his first NFL season, Pacheco racked up 830 yards and five touchdowns.
He was well-needed within this offense, establishing the run game to help Patrick Mahomes and the passing attack.
Toney’s sophomore season was also successful once he was traded from the New York Giants to the Chiefs.
While his stats don’t necessarily jump off the page, he was a valuable contributor to this offense.
Toney’s number was called during the 2022 Super Bowl, catching a touchdown pass to help secure a victory for the Chiefs.
He answered the call, and will now continue to be a massive part of this offense.
Pacheco and Toney are slated to play second-fiddle to Travis Kelce, who is priority number one in this offense.
Given that they are both fully healthy, Toney and Pacheco could both blossom in their second seasons with the Chiefs.
Mahomes tends to make those around him better.
