Jamaal Charles is recovering from an October 2015 ACL tear. His rehab seems to have been slowed, though no details are available. He was inactive Weeks 1 and 2, and he is doubtful for Week 3.

News you need to know

From Mark Wimer's Monday injury report (Mon Sep 26): Charles (knee injury) was listed as doubtful to play on Friday's injury report, was limited in all practice sessions last week, and he was inactive on Sunday as expected. Coach Andy Reid told reporters Monday that "there's a chance" the RB could be back this week.

Chiefs | KC remaining cautious with Jamaal Charles (Mon Sep 26, 02:00 PM) - Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) appears to have a decent chance to make his season debut in Week 4 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Head coach Andy Reid admitted the team is being 'very cautious' in regards to Charles.

Our View: With the way that Spencer Ware is running, the Chiefs have no need to rush Charles back into action. We could see him this week against the Steelers, but if Charles does play we'd expect him to be quite limited in his first week back.

Chiefs | Week 3 Inactives (Sun Sep 25, 03:23 PM) - The Kansas City Chiefs have declared WR De'Anthony Thomas, OT Jah Reid, RB Jamaal Charles, CB Kenneth Acker, OG Parker Ehinger, LB Sam Barrington, QB Tyler Bray inactive for Week 3.

Our View: Spencer Ware will get another start, but expectations are lower against the rough Jets run defense.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles won't play Sunday (Sun Sep 25, 09:56 AM) - Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) will not play in Week 3's game against the New York Jets, according to a source.

Our View: Spencer Ware gets another start. He's not as attractive against the tough Jets defense, but his heavy involvement in the passing game makes him game script proof. Consider Ware a solid RB2 this week despite the matchup.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles doubtful for Week 3 (Fri Sep 23, 03:55 PM) - Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) is unlikely to play in Week 3 against the New York Jets. While most of his work in practice this week was on the scout team, head coach Andy Reid said Charles saw a bit of first-team work as well.

Our View: It's difficult to make sense out of this because Charles was reportedly looking good all summer and activated from the PUP list on August 16th. He could have had a setback, but then his practice with the scout team doesn't make sense while he is healing. It is a fishy situation, which means we don't want to undersell Spencer Ware in trade talks or give up full value to get Charles. We can't be sure what we are getting when he returns, or when he will return.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles still limited Thursday (Thu Sep 22, 06:53 PM) - Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) was a limited participant in practice for the second day in a row Thursday, September 22.

Our View: We should see Spencer Ware as the lead back for the Chiefs on Sunday. Charles is likely to be shut down for a bit longer.
