Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles is set to be the centerpiece of the Chiefs’ offense, as well as many many fantasy footballer’s primary scorer on a weekly basis. So it’s no surprise when people around the football community got quite a scare today when Charles suffered an injury in practice that initially looked serious.
Charles left practice early on Monday, and Chiefs Head Coach Andy Reid said after practice that Charles has a strained foot, and that X-rays had already been taken and were negative.
“We’ll just see how he does. Precautionary measures,” Reid said Monday. “We’ll see how he does here in the next little bit — see where he’s at as far as pain or swelling.”
The latest report from Pro Football Talk that Jamaal Charles (foot) is “fine.”
Reid has also told SiriusXM NFL Radio there is a chance Charles will practice Tuesday.
