    Chiefs' Jamaal Charles: May be ahead of schedule

    Charles appears to be ahead of schedule in the rehabilitation process from a torn ACL in October, the Kansas City Star reports. "That's more of a medical assessment," general manager John Dorsey said. "If they say he's ahead of schedule, then I believe he's ahead of schedule, which is a positive for this organization." While Dorsey didn't specify whether or not he believed Charles would be ready training camp, the fact that he's ahead of schedule in his recovery certainly bodes well for his chances. The star running back's status should be further updated as the season approaches, but Charles should be set to retake his workhorse role for the Chiefs again in 2016 when healthy. The emergence of Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware behind him also provides the team with depth to rest the veteran Charles should they choose to turn to more of a rotation out of the backfield.

    Chiefs RB De'Anthony Thomas given only one carry Sunday

    Chiefs running back De'Anthony Thomas finished Sunday with just one carry for one yard, failing to haul in his only target of the day. A report surfaced earlier in the week that Thomas could see some playing time in the backfield following the injury to Jamaal Charles, but his one carry Sunday tells a different story.

    Report: Chiefs place RB Jamaal Charles on IR

    Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports. With Charles suffering a torn ACL on Sunday, the Kansas City backfield will be left to Charcandrick West and Knile Davis. Charles tore his other ACL in Week 2 of the 2011 season, and he bounced back the next year to put up 1,745 scrimmage yards in a full 16 games. He'll be a 29-year-old running back coming off a second torn ACL, but even by NFL standards, he has uncommon athleticism.

    Report: Torn ACL confirmed for Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles

    An MRI has reportedly confirmed that Cheifs running back Jamaal Charles tore his ACL on Sunday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. With Charles thus on track to miss the rest of the season, Charcandrick West and Knile Davis are next up for the Chiefs' backfield duties. With that in mind, coach Andy Reid relayed via the Kansas City Star that the duo would continue to split time, though it's worth noting that on Sunday, West finished the day with 31 yards on seven carries, while Davis carried the ball just twice for two yards. "I'm not saying who is or is not the feature guy, but we need both of them," Reid stated Sunday, with reference to turning to a West/Davis backfield combo. "Both their games are different. We'll just see how that goes. You saw both of them played today, so we'll got back to the drawing board on that and get it right." While the situation plays out, both West and Davis slot in as high-priority targets in leagues where they remain available, with West perhaps the higher percentage play, based on Week 5's box score, but not necessarily a lock to dominate the team's carries moving forward, given Davis' previous experience filling in for Charles.

    Chiefs' Jamaal Charles: Exits Sunday's game

    Charles was forced out of Sunday's game against the Bears with a knee injury. He will not return to the contest. Charles was unable to put pressure on his right leg as he left the field Sunday, so at first glance it looks like the Chiefs' star running back could miss some time. Look for the Chiefs to update Charles' status after the game, though for now, the team's backfield is in the hands of Charcandrick West and Knile Davis.

    Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles has strong all-around production Sunday

    Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles gained 75 yards on 11 rushes and caught all six of his targets for another 70 yards in Sunday's game against the Bengals. Despite averaging nearly seven yards per carry, Charles was used primarily as a receiving threat when the Chiefs got down early. His playmaking ability still allowed him to pile up 145 total yards, and PPR owners will gladly take the season-high totals in the receiving department. Charles' usage affords him one of the highest floors among fantasy running backs, and he will line up against the middling Bears defense at home in Week 5.

    Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles scores three times Monday

    Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles rushed 11 times for 49 yards and three touchdowns in Monday's game against the Packers. He also caught five passes (on seven targets) for 33 yards. Charles' first career three touchdown game came thanks to a trio of rushing scores from inside the 10 yard line, including two fourth quarter plunges. While Monday's early score line forced the Chiefs in more passes than usual, Charles remain heavily involved in their moves down the field, even if his 82 all-purpose yards marked his lowest single-game total of the campaign thus far. No matter, after some costly turnovers in Week 2, Charles put together an excellent Week 3 showing and will look to keep the ball rolling as Kansas City prepares to travel to Cincinnati in their next game.

    Chiefs' Jamaal Charles runs for 125 yards, coughs up big fumble

    Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles ran for 125 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries in Thursday's 31-24 loss to the Broncos, but he also lost a pair of fumbles, including one that was returned for the game-winning touchdown with 27 seconds remaining. Charles lost a fumble inside of the Denver 10-yard line on Kansas City's first drive, but he then bounced with a 34-yard touchdown scamper in the second quarter. He drew the target on five of Alex Smith's 25 pass attempts, finishing with four receptions for just two yards. Knile Davis vultured the go-ahead touchdown, after Charles touched the ball on four of the previous five plays. The Broncos then tied things up in the final minute, leaving the Chiefs with 36 seconds and one timeout. The Chiefs called a draw play on first down, and Broncos LB Brandon Marshall punched the ball out of Charles' hands, with CB Bradley Roby then returning it for a touchdown. Despite the costly miscues, Charles did well to average nearly six yards per carry against an excellent defense, and he out-touched Davis 25-3. The Packers will face a well-rested Charles at Lambeau Field on Monday Night Football in Week 3.
