by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

CBS affiliate KCTV in Kansas City reported Tuesday evening that Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles is planning to hold out of training camp. When asked about the subject, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said Charles might indeed not show up for the start of camp. The Chiefs expect him to show up according to the Kansas City Star

Camp opens on Wednesday for the Chiefs with the first practice on Thursday. Charles is allegedly seeking a new deal as he's paid $9 million per year less than Adrian Peterson and doesn't make as much as Reggie Bush and Ray Rice. Charles scored 19 touchdowns for the Chiefs last season.

Eric Fisher getting an early start
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Chiefs left tackle Eric Fisher, last year's No. 1 overall pick, practiced with rookies and fringe players at Tuesday's minicamp ahead of the full-squad training camp that opens Thursday, reports ESPN.com. Fisher is coming back from shoulder and sports hernia surgeries.

"I had the surgeries, so I needed to get out here, get situated before the vets get here," Fisher said. "I’m glad to be here early so I can get a jump on things."

Fisher played right tackle last year, so the extra time should help him adjust to protecting Alex Smith's blind side. He said he hasn't lost strength despite not being able to bench press following the shoulder operation.

"I’ve been in there working," he said. "When you can’t bench, there’s other things you can do. That’s what I was doing."
