Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said that running back Jamaal Charles will be ok for their week two match up against the Dallas Cowboys. Charles was held out of practice Wednesday but it was done more a precaution according to Reid.

Charles left the game in the third quarter of last week’s season opener with a quad injury before returning for one more carry. Charles had missed most of the preseason with a foot injury. He played pretty well in the game before leaving with the injury. He had carried the ball 15 times for 77 yards when he was injured, thats an average of over 5.1 yards a carry.

According to Pro Football Talk, “a league source added that Charles will be “totally fine,” which is apparently even better than fine.”

There doesn’t seem to be any reason for fantasy owners or Chiefs fans to worry.

    Glad Charles will be ready to go because this is going to be a tough game! The Chiefs are going to need all the offensive weapons they have in their arsenal. Dallas didn’t look like a Jacksonville when they played the Giants so I expect them to come to our house ready to play some football. The Chiefs better bring their A game because I think that is what they will need to win this game. We have the 12trh man advantage so we have an edge going into this game. Now that we have a legitimate QB I think the team can make a strong push to be 2-0!!!!
    I am cautiously optimistic that we will be 2-0 after Sunday. Go Chiefs!
