Charles added he tried to avoid going through the league's concussion protocol. Charles left a Chiefs' playoff game in January due to a concussion.

He added Charles passed multiple concussion tests Tuesday and has been cleared to practice Wednesday. Though, he added the team will continue to monitor his status.
