Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles' injury is "fine"



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.

Charles missed nearly an entire season two years ago with a torn ACL in his left knee. Charles averages 5.8 yards per rush, the highest average by a running back with a minimum of 500 attempts in league history.

    Practicing Tuesday seems unnecessary,let him rest for a couple days atleast,plus it will create extra reps for the RB’s fighting for the #2 job

  • BeltwayBoy Sports

    If he stays healthy I look for him to have a MONSTER season! He could be the highest scoring Fantasy RB this season if healthy.

    Why even risk a worse injury. JC should be held out of practice this week and the 49ers game this Friday. He’s a stud and better safe than sorry
