Recent Player News

  • Posted: 10/8/2014 12:15am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles has averaged more than 5 yards per carry in each of the past two games, and offensive line coach Doug Pederson said improved play from the offensive line has helped boost the rushing attack.

    Huddle Up: Charles has gotten back on track after some early-season usage and injury issues, but he will be challenged immediately after the Week 6 bye going against the rushing defenses of Chargers, Rams, Jets, Bills and Seahawks.

  • Posted: 10/3/2014 8:20pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 3, and is listed as probable for Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Charles will start against the 49ers this week and is a RB1 like always.

  • Posted: 9/30/2014 12:34am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (ankle) rushed for 92 yards and a TD on 18 carries and added 16 yards and a pair of scores on 3 receptions Monday, Sept. 29 in a 41-14 win over the New England Patriots.

    Huddle Up: It was 2013 all over again Monday night for Charles, who had 46 total yards without a score in the four-plus quarters he played before injuring his ankle in Week 2 and sitting out Week 3. Knile Davis also was heavily involved Monday night with 17 touches and 119 total yards, including a team-high 107 rushing, and expect his continued involvement going forward given his productiveness and the need to keep Charles fresh. But have no doubt, Charles is K.C.'s every-down lead dog as long as he remains healthy.

  • Posted: 9/27/2014 8:17pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (ankle) is listed as probable for Week 4. He was limited in practice again Saturday, Sept. 27.

    Huddle Up: Charles will start Monday night and is locked in as a RB1 this week. Knile Davis will go back to being Charles' handcuff.

  • Posted: 9/26/2014 6:53pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (ankle) was limited for the second straight day in practice Friday, Sept. 26.

    Huddle Up: The general feeling is that Charles will return to action in Week 4, but it's a tough call for fantasy owners who don't also have Knile Davis -- or only Davis for that matter -- with the Chiefs not playing until Monday night. See what Charles' status is after practice Saturday before formulating your lineup game plan.

  • Posted: 9/25/2014 2:11pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (ankle) likely will be able to play in Week 4, according to head coach Andy Reid.

    Huddle Up: Charles, who sat out Week 3, has increased his reps and workload in practice this week and appears no worse for wear. Place him back into your lineup for now, but beware that K.C. doesn't play until Monday night this week so hopefully you have Knile Davis waiting in the wings if there's a pre-game change of plans.

  • Posted: 9/22/2014 6:54pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (ankle) will 'most likely' return to practice this week after sitting out in Week 3, according to head coach Andy Reid. Kansas City has an extra day off this week while preparing for their Week 4 matchup against the New England Patriots Monday, Sept. 29.

    Huddle Up: Charles looks like he'll return to the lineup this week against New England, meaning Knile Davis is once again relegated to high-priced handcuff. Charles is a Top 3 fantasy play if healthy.

  • Posted: 9/19/2014 3:32pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (ankle) was practicing with the team for the second straight day Friday, Sept. 19, after missing practice Wednesday, Sept. 17, with a high ankle sprain. Charles, who's listed as questionable for Sunday's game, ran light patterns and caught passes with the receivers and running backs after warming up Friday. RB Knile Davis took the first snap of practice with the starting offense, but Charles took the next two snaps.

    Huddle Up: Charles' chances were all but written off earlier in the week, but it looks now as if he just might have a shot at playing Sunday in Miami. Not the best of news for those who were banking on a full workload for Knile Davis, but see what develops over the next 40 hours or so.

  • Posted: 9/18/2014 3:36pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (ankle) is participating in practice Thursday, Sept. 18.

    Huddle Up: No official word, but it figures to be limited participation to be sure. See how Friday goes, but as of right now, plan on Knile Davis being the team's No. 1 back in Miami on Sunday.

  • Posted: 9/16/2014 4:05pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles' (ankle) high ankle sprain does not appear to be severe, according to head coach Andy Reid. His status is unknown.

    Huddle Up: See if Charles can do anything on the ankle this week, and hopefully you have ultimate handcuff Knile Davis to fall back on if he can't.

  • Posted: 9/15/2014 10:22am ET

    Updating previous reports, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (ankle) had X-rays on his ankle, which were negative. He'll still undergo an MRI to determine if he has any ligament damage.

    Huddle Up: No word on how much time, if any, Charles will miss. Knile Davis looked great in his place and is a must-handcuff if you haven't done so already.

  • Posted: 9/14/2014 9:53pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (ankle) suffered a sprained ankle in the Week 2 game against the Denver Broncos, head coach Andy Reid said Sunday, Sept. 14.

    Huddle Up: Sprains can be tricky so Charles' availability for Week 3 is up in the air right now. If he can't go, Knile Davis will be locked in as a RB2 versus Miami.

  • Posted: 9/9/2014 11:04pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles received just 11 touches in Week 1, rushing seven times for 19 yards and catching four passes for 15 yards. Head coach Andy Reid took the blame for Charles' lack of involvement in the offense. 'Not giving 25 the ball more than seven times is negligence on my part,' Reid said.

    Huddle Up: Reid has no doubt been hearing it from Charles' fantasy owners and Chiefs' fans who saw 2013's top non-QB put up only 3.4 fantasy points in the 26-10 loss to the Titans. Expect that to be corrected Sunday in Denver.

  • Posted: 8/26/2014 10:08am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (foot) returned to practice Monday, Aug. 25, after missing the team's last two preseason games.

    Huddle Up: Charles injured himself moving out of the team's training camp dorms, but after taking a couple games off he appears to be all systems go for the start of the regular season.

  • Posted: 8/21/2014 6:42pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (foot) participated in practice Thursday, Aug. 21, but worked with the second- and scout-team offenses during practices. The team is not saying if Charles will play in the third preseason game.

    Huddle Up: Charles was back on the field for the first time since bruising his foot last weekend, and count on K.C. to play it as safe as possible with their franchise player.

  • Posted: 8/18/2014 11:21pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (foot) suffered a bruised foot when he twisted it while carrying a box, according to head coach Andy Reid. Charles sat out of the Week 2 preseason game versus the Carolina Panthers as a precautionary measure, Reid said.

    Huddle Up: Hey, Charles' fantasy owners can chalk it up as a blessing as fantasy's highest-scoring non-QB in 2013 wasn't exposed to a harsher injury playing in an exhibition game.

  • Posted: 8/17/2014 7:51pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles will not play in the second preseason game due to a bruised foot. RB Knile Davis will start in his place.

    Huddle Up: Step away the panic button, Charles owners, as the decision to keep the RB out of action Sunday night is purely precautionary.

  • Posted: 8/10/2014 11:28pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles' workload won't be scaled back by the team. Head coach Andy Reid said he's comfortable if Charles receives 320 touches for the third straight year, in large part because of the way Charles takes care of his body.

    Huddle Up: Listed at 6-foot-1 and 200 pounds, Charles appears even slighter than that, but he's withstood the wear and tear better than most backs, playing in at least 15 games in 5 of his 6 pro seasons. The only year he didn't, of course, was 2011 when he suffered a knee injury the second week of the season.

  • Posted: 7/23/2014 10:01pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles received a two-year contract extension, bringing his total deal length to four years. Charles will receive $18.1 million in new money and an extra $5 million over the next two seasons, which will put him in the top five of highest-paid running backs. He will earn $8.3 million in 2014.

    Huddle Up: And so ends one of the shortest holdouts in sports history as the Chiefs realized they have exactly one offensive playmaker on their roster and decided to pay him accordingly.

  • Posted: 7/23/2014 2:25pm ET

    Updating previous reports, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles will not report to training camp Wednesday, July 23, barring a major contract breakthrough.

    Huddle Up: Given that Charles is pretty much the only playmaker of note on the offensive side of the ball in Kansas City, not to mention the short career expectancy of an NFL running back, this should hardly come as a surprise. The key now is for the situation to be resolved before those holding a top-three pick in their fantasy draft have to grapple with the "will he holdout or will he show up" dilemma when considering Charles.

  • Posted: 7/22/2014 11:32pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles will not report to training camp, according to one source, but another told the Kansas City Star that the RB will show up Wednesday. In any case, Charles is said to be unhappy with his current contract as the RB is scheduled to earn $3.9 million this year, which ranks 14th among running backs. ESPN.com is reporting that Charles and the team are discussing a new contract.

    Huddle Up: Between Alex Smith and Charles, the K.C. front office is quite busy this offseason on the contract front, but priority No. 1 has to be Charles, the Chiefs' unquestioned MVP and fantasy's top RB in 2013.

  • Posted: 1/4/2014 10:53pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (concussion) will not return to the Wild Card playoff game after suffering a concussion.

    Huddle Up: Charles left the game after just three carries, leaving Knile Davis to handle the workload for KC until he went down with a knee injury.

  • Posted: 10/31/2013 8:33pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 31.

    Huddle Up: Fantasy's top back was back on the field after taking Wednesday off and is expected to see his normal workload Week 9 in Buffalo.

  • Posted: 10/28/2013 1:53pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said RB Jamaal Charles (knee) is considered day-to-day because of a bruised knee.

    Huddle Up: Fantasy owners collectively held their breaths last week when he was knocked out with a knee injury. Good to see there is nothing seriously wrong here.
