Chiefs RB Charles seeking to stay healthy, play six more years
by Marty Gitlin |

Chiefs standout running back Jamaal Charles told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter that he plans to retire at the age of 35 after six more seasons on the field.

Charles, who has played seven years in the NFL, will likely need to avoid the injuries he sustained in 2014 to reach that goal. Though he exceeded 1,000 yards rushing again and averaged an impressive 5.0 YPC, he admitted that a variety of ailments made it difficult on him. But he believes his mindset during games will keep him healthy.

"I'm definitely not going to take as many big hits as I did last year," he said. "I took the biggest hits last year. Normally, I try to get out of bounds or get down. I'm never g9ing to try to take anybody on, be a tough guy.

"I'm going to think about my career, how I can help my team win. I'm not going to try to go out there and prove a point."

Chiefs RB Charles admits to feeling frustrated in 2014
by Marty Gitlin |

Superstar running back Jamaal Charles didn't perform to his lofty standards for the Chiefs in 2014, but he feels that the blame can be placed squarely on injuries.

So when Charles told ESPN that his "body has healed up" and that he "feels good," it could be bad news for NFL defenses in 2015.

"I was frustrated more last season as I've ever been because of all those injuries," Charles said. "I was frustrated because I didn't feel my body was right the whole season. But I battled through that time. That's all I could do. I felt like I was in a fight and I had to respond. I had 12 weeks to finish the season and if felt to me like I had 12 rounds to go."

Charles suffered through several physical problems last year, including issues with his ankle, foot, back, shoulder, knee and hamstring. Yet despite a lack of practice time and being listed on the injury report for nine of 16 games, he still averaged 5.0 YPC, exceeded 1,000 yards rushing for the fifth time in six seasons and scored nine touchdowns.
