Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles turns in another solid game


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/21/2014) Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles turned in another solid performance against the Raiders.

Charles had a decent game on the ground, gaining 80 yards on 19 carries. He wasn't able to break any long rushes, with his longest run going for 11 yards. Charles did make up for that in the passing game, though. He caught four of his team-high seven targets for 42 yards and a score. Charles' score was his only big play of the night. He caught a pass about two yards past the line of scrimmage, and tore through the Raiders defense for a 30 yard touchdown. 

Charles will look for more Week 13 against the Broncos.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles tore up the Chiefs Week 11.

Charles ran for 159 yards on 20 carries. He averaged 8.0 yards per rush. Charles managed two touchdowns during the contest. In the first quarter, he plunged in a score from 1 yard out. He would add a 16 yard touchdown in the second quarter. Charles wasn't much of a threat in the passing game, but did manage 19 yards on two receptions. Charles was able to show some big play ability, ripping off runs of 28 and 47 yards. 

He'll look for more Week 12 against the Raiders. 


Jamaal Charles, Travis Kelce ready to go for Chiefs


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) The Chiefs will have Jamaal Charles and Travis Kelce available Week 11 against the Seahawks. 

The news isn't really a surprise; both players were listed as probable heading into the game. The team will have all their probable players available for the contest. Tamba Hali, Josh Martin, Josh Mauga and Sean Smith are all active.

Cornerback Phillip Gaines, who came into the game listed as questionable, will attempt to play through his injuries. 


Cornerbacks dominate injury report issued Friday by Chiefs


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/14/2014) Four Chiefs defensive backs have landed on the Friday injury report for their Sunday game against Kansas City. But only Jamell Fleming (hamstring) has been ruled out. Phillip Gaines (quad/ankle) and Chris Owens (knee) are questionable while Sean Smith (groin) is probable.

The others ruled out by the Chiefs are wideouts A.J. Jenkins (shoulder) and Donnie Avery (groin). The other questionable is tight end Anthony Fasano (knee). Headlining the probables are linebacker Tamba Hali (knee) and featured back Jamaal Charles (shoulder/elbow). Also probable are tight end Travis Kelce (ribs) and linebackers Josh Mauga (groin) and Josh Martin (hamstring/knee).


Report: Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles fine after missing end of game


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles said he's fine after missing the end of his team's 17-13 win over the Bills Sunday, NFL.com reports.

"If there was another quarter I probably would've gone back in," Charles said.

Charles, who suffered a stinger earlier in the game, received two touches just before the two-minute warning on the team's final drive of the fourth quarter, but Knile Davis carried the ball three straight times after the break before the Chiefs punted. He should be good to go for the Chiefs' Week 11 matchup with the Seahawks, though the team will certainly monitor the star running back closely during practice.


Jamaal Charles overcomes stinger to extend TD streak


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Despite getting a stinger in the first half, Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles piled up 118 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown Week 10 at Buffalo. Charles ran 15 times for 98 yards (6.5) and caught three of four targets for 20 yards.

Early in the fourth quarter, Charles took a 4th-and-1 pitch 39 yards for a touchdown, his fourth straight week with a rushing score. He's up to eight total touchdowns through nine games.

Charles appeared to reinjure himself late in the fourth quarter when he got slammed to the turf following a short reception. No official word yet from the Chiefs. Charles is scheduled to play the Seahawks in Week 11.


Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles playing through stinger


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles suffered a stinger in the first half at Buffalo but returned to the game. Charles got off to a very slow start, gaining 17 yards on his first six carries.

The Chiefs said Charles "is now fine," reports the Kansas City Star.


Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles records 50th career touchdown


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles rushed for a team-high 78 yards and one touchdown on 20 carries during a 24-10 win Week 9 vs. N.Y. Jets. Charles added two catches for 10 yards.

Charles gave Kansas City a 7-0 lead midway through the first quarter with a 1-yard rushing touchdown. It was fifth rushing touchdown -- all coming in the last five games -- this season and 50th career touchdown (34 rushing). He became only the seventh player in team history with at least 50 touchdowns.

The Chiefs are back in action Week 10 at Buffalo.


Chiefs to have their studs Week 9


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/31/2014) The Chiefs should have all their studs Week 9 against the Jets.

Offensive starters Jamaal Charles, Alex Smith and Travis Kelce headline the long list of probable players for the contest. All three should play.

The team also listed Eric Berry, Anthony Fasano, Phillip Gaines, Cyrus Gray, Junior Hemingway, Mike McGlynn and Sean Smith as probable for the contest. Berry is listed with an ankle injury. 


Jamaal Charles as studly as ever


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/27/2014) Though he was the consensus No. 1 overall pick in Fantasy coming into the season, an early injury combined with the stellar play of DeMarco Murray, Matt Forte and Arian Foster has made Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles a bit of an afterthought as far as stud running backs go.

He wasn't letting anybody forget about him Week 8 against St. Louis, delivering two touchdowns for his second multi-score game in four. And he showed he's still a factor in the passing game as well, making four grabs for 44 yards, both season highs.

Though he struggled to get going with just eight carries for 14 yards in the first half, he put the game away in the third and fourth quarters, making him just a spectator for most of the latter. He has averaged 85.0 rushing yards over his last four games despite getting 20 carries in only one of them.

And don't worry about Knile Davis cutting into Charles' playing time. He may have had the more carries of the two in Week 8, but only because the Chiefs were up big. All but three of Davis' carries came after Charles' final carry early in the fourth quarter.


Jamaal Charles totals more than 100 yards, two TDs in Week 8 win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) The Chiefs scored 34 unanswered points, including two Jamaal Charles' rushing touchdowns, to rally for a 34-7 win Week 8 vs. St. Louis. Charles had a team-high 73 rushing yards on 13 carries, while adding four catches for 44 yards.

Charles helped tie the game at 7 with a 1-yard rushing touchdown with 12 minutes left in the second quarter. He added his second rushing touchdown on a 36-yarder early in the fourth quarter, which gave Kansas City a 27-7 lead.

Sunday was Charles' second multi-touchdown game of the season. He now has four rushing touchdowns and two receiving touchdowns in six games.

The Chiefs are back in action Week 9 vs. N.Y. Jets.


NFL fine with Chiefs handling of RB Jamaal Charles after big hit


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) The NFL has no issues with the Chiefs handling of running back Jamaal Charles after he took a big hit last week against the Chargers and will not further pursue the matter, sources told CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora.

Charles started a bit of a media frenzy when he admitted during a radio interview this week he was "seeing spots" after being involved in a violent collision with Chargers cornerback Brandon Flowers while scoring a touchdown Week 7. Charles said multiple times he did not suffer a concussion, but it ended speculation whether he should have continued playing Week 7.

Chiefs trainer Rick Burkholder told reporters Wednesday that Charles was checked during Sunday's game for a concussion, and he passed baseline and impact tests. Sources with knowledge of the situation confirmed to La Canfora that Charles was evaluated on the sidelines during the game and passed all protocols from an independent neurologist.


Chiefs' Jamaal Charles admits he was a little shaken up by hard hit


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2014) Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles was involved in a violent collision with Chargers cornerback Brandon Flowers while scoring a touchdown during Sunday's game. Both players were sent to the turf, but Flowers left with a concussion and Charles stayed in the game.

Though, Charles admitted during a radio interview with ESPN that maybe he was dealing with symptoms of a concussion.

"It definitely hurt," Charles said, per ProFootballTalk.com. "It’s like, I woke up -- I mean, like, a couple plays later I was seeing light bulbs, like, light bulbs around my eyes, and I was trying to catch them. But I was in the game so I was like, ‘Alright, let’s get the ball and run again.'"

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.

"I didn’t have a concussion, but it definitely was a hit that shocked me," he said. "But I don’t think I had to go through the concussion protocols and all that. I didn’t want to go through that again because of what happened in the playoffs. I was definitely fine, I think I came out pretty good."

Chiefs trainer Rick Burkholder told reporters Wednesday Charles was checked during Sunday's game for a concussion, and he passed baseline and impact tests. 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.


Jamaal Charles totals 107 yards, scores TD in Chiefs' Week 7 win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles rushed for 95 yards on 22 carries and scored a touchdown while adding two catches for 12 yards in his team's 23-20 win over the Chargers in Week 7.

Charles took a handoff on a sweep to the right side of the formation in the second quarter and made a great decision to cut back towards the middle of the field en route to a 16-yard touchdown. He was hammered as he crossed the goal line by cornerback Brandon Flowers, but the running back showed no aftereffects following the big hit.

The 95 rushing yards marked a season high, and Charles is up to 290 rushing yards, 55 receiving yards and four total touchdowns, with most of the damage coming in his last three games. He also passed Priest Holmes for the all-time franchise lead in rushing yards in the win. He and the Chiefs are set to square off with the Rams in Week 8.


Andy Reid apologizes for not giving RB Jamaal Charles enough touches


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/6/2014) Chiefs head coach Andy Reid addressed the media on Monday and apologized for not giving running back Jamaal Charles enough carries in the Week 5 defeat to the 49ers, per ESPN. It's the second time this season he's apologized getting Charles enough touches.

Charles took 11 handoffs for 49 yards in the first half, but received only five touches after halftime. He totaled 84 yards on 16 touches in the defeat.

"If we had that to do over again...I'd probably come back and hand it to him and give him an opportunity to make that play," Reid said.

The Chiefs will travel to San Diego for a divisional showdown against the Chargers in Week 6.


Jamaal Charles gets the heavy work


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) In Week 4, the Chiefs had the luxury of giving both running backs a steady diet of work, and it worked out well for all parties involved. However, with Week 5's matchup against the 49ers in constant doubt, it was Jamaal Charles who got the bulk of the work Sunday.

Charles didn't see a huge workload himself, amassing just 15 touches, but any talk of a running-back-by-committee approach went to the wayside, as Knile Davis had just two touches of his own. Charles showed he is recovered from an ankle injury last week, and looked solid again Sunday, rushing for 80 yards and averaging 5.3 yards per carry.

Charles got off to a disastrous start to the season, but has ended up around where we expected over the last two games. At this point, you should have little doubt about moving forward with Charles as your starting back.  


Chiefs get away from RB Jamaal Charles in second half


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles ran 11 times for 49 yards in the first half at San Francisco, but received just five touches after halftime in the 22-17 loss. Charles finished with 15 carries for 80 yards and a 4-yard catch on four targets.

Charles has excelled the past two weeks despite dealing with an ankle injury and just moved into second place on the team's all-time rushing list, passing Larry Johnson. He should come back following the Week 6 bye at or near 100 percent.


Jamaal Charles ready to face 49ers


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles, who was probable with an ankle injury, is active as expected for the game at San Francisco. Charles racked up 108 yards from scrimmage and three touchdowns last week after missing Week 3.

Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles probable after full practice Friday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/3/2014) Chiefs premier running back Jamaal Charles practiced in full Friday for the first time this week and has been deemed probable for the Week 5 game at San Francisco.

Charles, who has been dealing with an ankle issue, broke loose last week after a slow start to the season. He is coming off a performance in which he rushed for one touchdown and added two more through the air in a rout of New England.


Jamaal Charles limited Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/1/2014) Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles was limited in practice Wednesday.

Charles is dealing with an ankle injury, but was able to play Week 4. As long as he continues practicing he should be good to go Week 5. Charles scored three touchdowns Week 4 despite the injury.


Jamaal Charles faces tough matchup in encore


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/1/2014) Coming off his best performance of the season, Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles faces a much tougher matchup in Week 5, with the 49ers on the way.

Charles finally looked like the player we expected last week, though he did it against a Patriots defense that had allowed 53 Fantasy points over their first three games to opposing running backs. This Sunday, however, he runs into a 49ers defense that has surrendered just 31 Fantasy points per game in four games, including just 12 over the last three games.

In matchups against elite running backs Matt Forte and LeSean McCoy, the 49ers allowed those two to score just 3 and 1 Fantasy points, respectively. Though we certainly expect better from Charles Sunday, his production might end up being a bit of a letdown after Monday's breakout. Charles should be active in all leagues, but don't expect him to run all over this defense. 


Jamaal Charles' ankle 'doing OK'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/30/2014) Chiefs coach Andy Reid said running back Jamaal Charles' ankle was sore following Monday's win over the Patriots, but "he's doing OK," reports the Kansas City Star. Charles ran 18 times for 92 yards and a touchdown and caught three passes for 16 yards and a pair of scores after missing Week 3 with the injury.

Charles is fully expected to start Sunday at San Francisco.


Jamaal Charles' return a last hurrah for Knile Davis?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/30/2014) The good news is Knile Davis delivered his second straight 100-yard game even with star running back Jamaal Charles back on the field Week 4 against New England. The bad news is Charles looked so good himself that Davis may not have a shot at another.

Only two weeks removed from a high ankle sprain that seemed certain to sideline him for weeks to come, Charles scored three touchdowns -- one on the ground and two through the air -- and was consistent with his 18 carries, the longest going for 17 yards. He acknowledged some soreness afterward but gave no reason to believe he won't be back out there Week 5 at San Francisco.

In fact, if not for a big lead in the second half, he might have been out there longer in Week 4. Of Davis' 16 carries, 11 came in the second half. He played 43 percent of the Chiefs' snaps to Charles' 54 percent.

If Week 5 ends up being a closer game -- and it most likely will be -- the Chiefs may not ask Davis to spell Charles as much. While you're no doubt pleased with your decision to stick with the backup despite Charles' return, you may have simply lucked out. Davis remains as good as a of a handcuff option as you'll find in Fantasy, but you should plan to bench him for the foreseeable future.


Andy Reid wants to keep Knile Davis involved


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/30/2014) Despite Jamaal Charles' return from an ankle injury, Chiefs coach Andy Reid indicated running back Knile Davis will continue to get substantial work. Davis has run for 239 yards the past two weeks.

"They're both explosive players," Reid told ESPN.com. "They're completely different players, but they're both explosive players. That makes my job easy. Just give them the ball."


Jamaal Charles' ankle is sore after three-touchdown night


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/30/2014) Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles said he felt good during the 41-14 win over the Patriots, but admitted afterward his injured ankle was sore, reports ESPN.com. "I'm ready to get off it and ice it up," he said.

Charles got 21 touches and scored three touchdowns, two receiving, in his first action since spraining his ankle Week 2. He'll play the 49ers in San Francisco on Sunday.
