  Chiefs | Jamaal Charles splits reps    Sat Sep 20, 12:23 AM

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs RBs Jamaal Charles (ankle) and Knile Davis split first-team reps in practice Friday, Sept. 19. Davis was the running back for the first snap of practice, and then Charles took the next two snaps.

Footballguys view: Officially, Charles was listed as a limited participant. He spent time running some light pass patterns and caught passes with the rest of the team's receivers and backs. This complicates things for fantasy owners. Both are RB3s at this time.

  Chiefs | Jamaal Charles' status in question    Fri Sep 19, 05:41 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 19, and is listed as questionable for Week 3.

Footballguys view: Charles will likely be a game-time decision. It's hard to bench him if active, but his range of outcomes is very wide with many paths to a poor day.

  Chiefs | Jamaal Charles practicing again    Fri Sep 19, 02:17 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (ankle) was practicing with the team for the second straight day Friday, Sept. 19, after missing practice Wednesday, Sept. 17, with a high ankle sprain. Charles' official status on the injury report has not been released yet. Charles ran light patterns and caught passes with the receivers and running backs after warming up Friday. RB Knile Davis took the first snap of practice with the starting offense, but Charles took the next two snaps.

Footballguys view: Charles could do anything from start and get most of the workload to not even suit up in Miami, but he is clearly closer to a return than any of us thought a few days ago. Stay tuned.

  Chiefs | Jamaal Charles takes part in warm-ups    Thu Sep 18, 04:09 PM

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (ankle) took part in the early portion of practice open to the media Thursday, Sept. 18, and his availability in Week 3 against the Miami Dolphins is unknown. He went through warm-ups and was then tended to by a trainer before joining the running back drills. Charles did a drill that involved cutting through cones to catch a pass, and he didn't appear to have any problems.

Footballguys view: Ankle sprain, smankle sprain looks like all that Knile Davis talk was for naught. Let's put this in perspective though as we don't know how Charles will feel tonight or tomorrow, we don't know how Andy Reid will misuse--excuse me, use him and we don't know if the team will be cautious with him and split carries off to Davis. We--ever so carefully--have Charles as a RB2 with some upside. Given the questions around his injury and the poor showing the Chiefs have had this season, a little caution is a good thing.

  Chiefs | Jamaal Charles practicing    Thu Sep 18, 02:50 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (ankle) is participating in practice Thursday, Sept. 18.

Footballguys view: As we said in our email update, Teicher has deep ties in KC and is a solid source--he knows things. We'll watch this carefully for any soreness or issues which might crop up from the practice. This is all good but sit tight--we don't have all the info yet and he may still sit. If he doesn't you have to like him as an RB1.

  Chiefs | Jamaal Charles injury not severe    Tue Sep 16, 09:24 AM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles' (ankle) high ankle sprain does not appear to be severe, according to head coach Andy Reid. His status is unknown.

Footballguys view: Good news for the Chiefs and for fantasy owners here. Monitor the practice report to see when Charles gets back into action. Just because the injury is not severe doesn't mean that Charles is immediately back. Knile Davis is a hot waiver wire addition this week.

  Chiefs | Ankle sprain for Jamaal Charles    Sun Sep 14, 08:19 PM

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (ankle) suffered a sprained ankle in the Week 2 game against the Denver Broncos, head coach Andy Reid said Sunday, Sept. 14.

Footballguys view: The question is how ready Charles will be to play at Miami next week. Knile Davis's big day had to frustrate Charles owners, and it may cause the Chiefs to be cautious with their offensive MVP because the backup was so productive in a tough divisional matchup. Charles will have an MRI tomorrow according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (ankle) will not return to the Week 2 game against the Denver Broncos after leaving in the first quarter with an ankle injury.

Footballguys view: Charles and the Chiefs travel to Miami next week, in case you were wondering. Knile Davis has looked good in his stead, so Kansas City won't feel the need to rush him back.

  Chiefs | Jamaal Charles underused     Tue Sep 9, 10:10 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles received just 11 touches in Week 1, rushing seven times for 19 yards and catching four passes for 15 yards. Head coach Andy Reid took the blame for Charles' lack of involvement in the offense. 'Not giving 25 the ball more than seven times is negligence on my part,' Reid said Monday, Sept. 8.

Footballguys view: This just doesn't make sense. Charles is one of the best--if not THE best--running backs in the game today. The team needs to get him involved early and often moving forward. We'll see if the Chiefs can jump-start Charles in Week 2 against the Denver Broncos.

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (foot) suffered a bruised foot when he twisted it after practice, according to head coach Andy Reid. Charles sat out of the Week 2 preseason game versus the Carolina Panthers as a precautionary measure, Reid said.

Footballguys view: This sounds like a minor issue for Charles. Fantasy owners should still be taking him off the board with the first or second overall pick in their fantasy drafts.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (foot) will not play in the second preseason game due to a bruised foot. RB Knile Davis will start in his place.

Footballguys view: There's no outward indication that this is any more than a precaution. Remember the Jamaal Charles injury scare last summer? That was no reason to avoid him and this isn't either.

  Chiefs | Jamaal Charles won't be scaled back    Sun Aug 10, 06:23 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles' workload won't be scaled back by the team. Head coach Andy Reid said he's comfortable if Charles receives 320 touches for the third straight year, in large part because of the way Charles takes care of his body.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners can breathe a sigh of relief here. Charles put together what may have been his best all-around season in 2013, setting career highs in receptions (70), receiving yards (693) and touchdowns (19)--and oh yeah, he rushed 259 times for 1,287 yards.

  Chiefs | Jamaal Charles receives contract extension    Wed Jul 23, 04:42 PM

Updating an ongoing story, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles has agreed to an undisclosed contract extension and is on his way to training camp, per sources.

Footballguys view: That was the shortest holdout in the history of the NFL. Charles was going to skip the start of camp because he wanted more money. The Chiefs quickly reacted and gave him a contract extension that locks him up for the next four years. Charles is now the second-highest paid running back in the NFL behind Adrian Peterson. Charles was scheduled to make $3.9 million in salary and bonuses this season, but now that number is $8.3 million in 2014.

Charles is looking to make more money, and he feels underpaid at his current average annual salary of $4.6 million. At this time, the Chiefs have around $9 million in cap space. They are looking to get a deal done with Justin Houston in addition to Charles. We'll see if they can do some salary-cap gymnastics to get both paid.

  Chiefs | Dexter McCluster becoming bigger part of offense?    Tue Oct 29, 02:09 PM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dexter McCluster had a team-high seven catches for 67 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 8 win over the Cleveland Brown. He also had one rush for five yards. 'As a player, you never know when it's going to be your day,' said McCluster, who was targeted by QB Alex Smith a team-high 10 times. 'You just have to be there when it's time. I was able to get started early and get some balls early.' His 13 touches were a season high, and the team has been looking for someone to step up and help lighten the workload for RB Jamaal Charles. Smith thinks the team will use McCluster more in the second half of the season.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners need to take note here. Andy Reid has finally figured out how to use McCluster as a receiver, and he's thriving with a bigger role. The Chiefs are going to have to open up the offense in the near future when they play teams like the Chargers and the Broncos.
