    05/18/16RBJamaal CharlesKneeQUESTIONABLECoach Andy Reid confirmed that Charles (knee) will participate in the Chiefs' upcoming OTAs in a limited capacity.

    It's not surprising that the Chiefs plan to limit Charles in OTAs, given that he is bouncing back from a torn right ACL that he sustained back in in Week 5 of last season. Still, that he will be working in any capacity is a great sign with regard to his chances of amping things up in training camp. Assuming no setbacks as Charles recovers, the 29-year-old -- who tore the ACL in his left knee in September of 2011 -- remains clearly atop Kansas City's RB depth chart as the 2016 season approaches. That said, the team made a point to re-sign the backs that filled in for him so capably last season -- namely Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware -- plus former No. 2 back Knile Davis remains on the team's roster. When evaluating Charles from a fantasy perspective, it's worth noting how well he returned from his first ACL injury, but with the big picture in mind, we wouldn't be surprised to see West and Ware see their share of touches this coming season in order to help keep Charles fresh.

    04/27/16DBPhillip GainesKneePROBABLEChiefs CB Phillip Gaines suffered a sprained knee Monday, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports. 
    04/27/16LBJustin HoustonKneeQUESTIONABLEHouston (knee) will play in the 2016-17 season according to GM John Dorsey, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports.

    Houston went through ACL surgery back in February and was given a recovery timetable ranging from 6-12 months. The linebacker did not tear his ACL, but instead it was revealed that his ACL was not function properly. The 27-year-old missed the final five games of the regular season and saw limited action during the playoffs. Dorsey did not confirm a timetable for Houston's return or if he would be ready in time for the regular-season opener, but more information will arise as the Chiefs begin training camp this summer.

    05/17/16RBRyan MathewsGroinPROBABLEMathews and teammate Darren Sproles are being pegged as the Eagles' primary running backs following the trade of DeMarco Murray, Philly.com reports.

    Mathews' future with the Eagles was somewhat uncertain earlier this week, but after Murray was traded, executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman expressed confidence in Mathews and Sproles as the team's top two runners. In 13 games last season, Mathews rushed for 539 yards and six touchdowns, averaging a career-best 5.1 yards per carry along the way. While the Eagles could certainly add another running back in the upcoming draft, it appears Mathews could be their primary ball-carrier this season, according to Roseman and coach Doug Peterson's recent comments.

    04/27/16DBRon BrooksNeckPROBABLEBrooks (neck) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

    Neck and shoulder issues cost Brooks time recently, even forcing him into the concussion protocol, though it's not entirely clear whether his placement on IR is related or due to a new injury. Brooks played primarily on special teams this season, recording 12 total tackles (11 solo).

    04/27/16DBNolan CarrollAnklePROBABLECarroll (leg) has agreed to re-sign with the Eagles on a one-year contract, ESPN reports.

    Carroll started the first 11 games of last season before suffering a broken fibula in a Thanksgiving loss to the Lions. He may have to compete for a starting job in 2016, as the Eagles traded away Byron Maxwell but did sign Leodis McKelvin. 2015 second-round selection Eric Rowe also figures to compete for a starting spot on the outside.

    04/27/16DLBennie LoganCalfPROBABLELogan (calf) was placed on IR on Saturday, Philadelphia Inquirer writer Jeff McLane reports.

    Logan is a fine run-stopping interior lineman and his absence leaves Philadelphia a bit more vulnerable at the nose tackle position against the Giants.
