The Green Bay Packers have acquired RB Knile Davis from the Kansas City Chiefs in exchange for a conditional draft choice, placed CB Sam Shields on injured reserve. The transactions were announced Tuesday by Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson.

Davis, a 5-foot-11, 227-pound fourth-year player out of the University of Arkansas, was originally drafted by Kansas City in the third round (96th overall) of the 2013 NFL Draft. He played in 50 games for the Chiefs during the regular season, registering 775 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns on 233 attempts (3.3 avg.) while also hauling in 31 receptions for 260 yards (8.4 avg.) and one TD.

His 27.2-yard average ranks No. 6 in the NFL since 2013 (min. 40 KR) and the two TDs are tied for No. 2 in the league since 2013. Davis will wear No. 30 for the Packers.
