Charles (knee) is slated to practice Wednesday, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.
It remains to be seen if Charles is able to graduate to full participation as the week rolls along, but for now, coach Andy Reid indicates that the running back will work with the team Wednesday "and we'll just see from there." Meanwhile, fellow RB Charcandrick West is dealing with an ankle sprain. In any case, Charles' Week 4 status has yet to be determined and Sunday night's contest against the Steelers could well feature a Kansas City ground game once again headed by Spencer Ware.
Golson (foot) is ruled out for Sunday's contest with the Eagles.
Golson has not yet fully recovered from the Lisfranc surgery that he underwent in early August, but the 23-year-old is making tremendous progress. According to various reports, Golson is ahead of schedule and could be nearing a return to action in the coming weeks.
Nix (back) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's contest.
Nix is unlikely to suit up for Sunday's date with Philadelphia which means that he could be in line to miss a third consecutive game. On the bright side, it does appear that he will be able to play within the coming weeks regardless of his status for Sunday.
Bryant was never under consideration of being cut by the Steelers despite his recently imposed year-long suspension, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Bryant's multiple violations of the league's substance abuse policy triggered a minimum one-year suspension from the league, but the Steelers never considered releasing him, according to general manager Kevin Colbert. Instead, Pittsburgh will hope Bryant makes the necessary changes to his life to get reinstated next year, when he would have two years remaining on his contract with the team. With Bryant suspended, Steelers receivers Markus Wheaton and, more specifically, Sammie Coates, will be looked upon to take advantage of their increased opportunities this season.
