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.
Reid said Charles will be held out of practice this afternoon: “We’re just taking it slow. I think he’ll be OK for the game.”

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.
