    07/11/16RBJamaal CharlesKneeQUESTIONABLECharles (knee) will take part in individual drills at Tuesday's minicamp practice, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

    Charles has been present at offseason practices for rehab and off-field work for the past few weeks, but he's yet to make an on-field appearance alongside his teammates. Tuesday thus marks a significant step in his recovery from the torn ACL suffered in Week 5 last year, with all reports to date suggesting that Charles is on/ahead of schedule. There is some thought that Charles, even if he returns to full health, might lose touches to Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West, who formed an effective duo in the superstar's absence last season. Prior to the injury, Charles was handling a huge workload while playing the vast majority of offensive snaps; he had 71 carries, 21 receptions, 541 scrimmage yards and five touchdowns in just 4.5 games.

    07/11/16DBPhillip GainesKneePROBABLEGaines (knee) "will probably be the guy at the [other] corner spot [opposite Marcus Peters]" according to head coach Andy Reid, the the Kansas City Star reports.

    When 2015 starter Sean Smith bolted for Oakland, the starting cornerback job opposite AP Defensive Rookie of the Year Marcus Peters went up for grabs. Though lost to an ACL tear last September, Gaines appears to be the frontrunner for the gig. He's been unable to participate in team drills during the majority of the Chiefs' offseason program, but has taken part in individual drills and should be ready for training camp. If his knee holds up through the end of the summer, the starting job should be his to lose.

    04/27/16LBJustin HoustonKneeQUESTIONABLEHouston (knee) won't be ready for the start of next month's training camp, ESPN.com reports.

    The Chiefs still do not have a concrete timetable outlined for Houston, who underwent ACL surgery in February, though GM John Dorsey maintains that the linebacker will play for the team at some point this coming season. With that in mind, Dorsey noted of Houston, "I don't know how much he's going to do in camp. But, listen, he's where he needs to be right now and he's a hard worker. He's bound and determined to get back. We'll just see how it works out. There is no timetable. It's just when he's right, he's right and we'll roll." Houston, who racked up 22 sacks in 2014, is coming off a 2015 campaign in which he recorded 30 tackles and 7.5 sacks in 11 games.
