Though Charles is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints, coach Andy Reid downplayed the running back's knee issue Friday, BJ Kissel of Chiefs.com reports. "Jamaal was limited today," Reid noted Friday, while adding that the running back's knee "had a little bit of swelling in it (on Thursday) and we were just taking it down for today. We think everything will be alright as we go."
While Reid's words offer encouragement that Charles could give it a go in Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff, that shouldn't be considered a lock. Moreover, with a knee that is still acting up, even if Charles does play this week it's hard to imagine him overtaking fellow RB Spencer Ware in the snaps/carries department in Week 7.
Peters (quadriceps) is out for Week 7's matchup against the Broncos.
Peters is still in the process of recovering from a quadriceps injury that he suffered against Minnesota in Week 5. His absence will thin the Texans' depth at linebacker, but shouldn't drastically affect their overall performance against the Broncos.
