Jamaal Charles Hopes To Be Healthy By This Summer

One of the three early ACL injuries for the Kansas City Chiefs came to a pretty important player -- RB Jamaal Charles. The Chiefs star running back tore his ACL against the Detroit Lions in Week 2 and that's a season-ending injury so, like S Eric Berry and TE Tony Moeaki, we haven't seen much of Charles this year.

But the Chiefs running back does indeed live on. He did a podcast with ESPN's Fantasy Football crew this week and they asked him when he would be able to return from his ACL injury.

"I think I should be ready by OTA's, working out with the team," Charles said (via Arrowhead Addict). "I got hurt early so I had a lot more time to like, to get myself back and it only takes six months. So by the time OTA's it should be like eight, seven months."

That would be sometime in May or June, which is great news for the Chiefs. It's never a good time for a player to tear an ACL but I suppose a positive out of this situation is that all three of those guys suffered the injury early in the year which gives them lots of time to rehab and get back at it next offseason.
