Jamaal Charles not worried about Chiefs o-line: 'These guys are going to come around'

Jamaal Charles not worried about Chiefs o-line: 'These guys are going to come around'

The offensive line seems to be the big concern for the Kansas City Chiefs right now but no one told Jamaal Charles. So, why was Jamaal Charles allowed to carry his own stuff out of his training camp dorm which then caused him to have a "freak accident" and come away with a minor foot injury? "I grew up and did everything on my own, so I didn't want anybody to help me," Jamaal said Tuesday (via quotes from the Chiefs). "I didn't care to ask anybody. I brought it in by myself; I'll take it out by myself." Charles carried the ball three times and caught two passes for a total of five touches...

Chiefs' Alex Smith, Jamaal Charles won't play vs. Packers; Chase Daniel to start

The Chiefs have their quarterback playing time figured out for the preseason finale. Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said Tuesday that neither Alex Smith nor Jamaal Charles would be playing in the Thursday preseason finale against the Green Bay Packers. Reid indicated other starters would be sitting as well. Historically Reid hasn't played his first team offense much if at all in the final preseason game. There are a number of them (Dwayne Bowe, Eric Berry, Jamaal Charles) who are dealing with injuries anyway. I don't think anyone is complaining that the starters won't be playing...

Little for Jamaal Charles to gain if he plays in Kansas City Chiefs preseason finale

Little for Jamaal Charles to gain if he plays in Kansas City Chiefs preseason finale

The Chiefs probably shouldn't play Jamaal Charles on Thursday night. It has yet to be decided whether Jamaal Charles, who has missed the last two preseason games with a minor foot injury, will play in the preseason finale against the Green Bay Packers on Thursday night. "Not sure yet," Chiefs OC Doug Pederson said on Monday. "We haven't made those decisions yet. Coach will make that decision later this week and we'll see." The decision should be not to play Charles. There is little if anything to gain by putting him in for a series or two. The Chiefs are still tinkering with their offensive...

Jamaal Charles, Dwayne Bowe not expected to play in Chiefs-Vikings preseason game

A few big name players are not likely to play for the Kansas City Chiefs in their third preseason game against the Minnesota Vikings. The KC Chiefs haven't announced yet whether Jamaal Charles will play in the third preseason game on Saturday night against the Minnesota Vikings. This is just speculation but I would not bet on him playing. Charles hurt his foot moving out of the dorms at training camp last week and did not play in the second preseason game. There seems little reason to play him on Saturday night, and the Chiefs actions seem to support that. ESPN's Adam Teicher, the KC...

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Jamaal Charles returned to Chiefs practice Thursday for the first time since hurting his foot last week, though he’s unlikely to play in Saturday night’s preseason game against Minnesota. Charles hurt the foot last Thursday while moving out of the dormitories at Missouri Western, where the Chiefs start their training camp workouts.

With Chiefs' Charles out, Davis, Gray get chances

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Pro Bowl running back Jamaal Charles was still held out of Chiefs practice Tuesday after hurting his foot in an accident while moving out of the dorms last week. Charles did not make the trip to Carolina for Sunday’s preseason game after getting hurt on the final day of practice at Missouri Western. The Chiefs resumed training camp at their own facility in Kansas City in anticipation of Saturday night’s game against Minnesota. With Charles out, Knile Davis and Cyrus Gray have been getting the majority of snaps. read more

Chiefs' Charles sidelined by freak slip down hill

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Jamaal Charles made it through every hit from Derrick Johnson, every shot from Eric Berry and every tackle from the rest of the Chiefs’ defense during three weeks at Missouri Western. It wasn’t until he was leaving their training camp home that he got hurt. Charles was in the process of moving out of the dorms last Thursday, when the team was getting ready to shift the rest of camp to their own practice facility, when he came to a grassy slope. He wound up slipping just a bit and turned his foot just enough to set alarm bells ringing. read more

Jamaal Charles injury: KC Chiefs RB suffers minor foot injury moving out of dorms at training camp

Moving a box out of the dorms at Kansas City Chiefs training camp last week, Jamaal Charles suffered a minor foot injury that kept him out of the Chiefs second preseason game against the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy forecast: Matt Forte could pay dividends; Jamaal Charles a bit too risky

Even if your top two running backs stay healthy and produce, at some point you're going to need two or three extras, even if it's just to dangle as trade bait to owners who weren't so fortunate.

On Jamaal Charles' usage, it's about carries, not receptions

Chatting with Football Outsiders about Jamaal Charles and the magic number of touches. As part of the release of the annual Football Outsiders Almanac, which is excellent as always, I talked with Scott Kacsmar from Football Outsiders on the 2014 Kansas City Chiefs. I'll be posting a series of questions this week from my chat with him. If you're a football nut, the FO Almanac is for you. FO Almanac: PDF | Amazon My first question was on the usage of Jamaal Charles, who had 259 carries and 70 receptions last year. I'm thinking that number will go up in 2014 as the Chiefs will ride Charles...
