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.
