Good news, Kansas City Chiefs fans. Jamaal Charles return from ACL injury continues to look good. Charles visited Kansas City for a physical this week and he passed along an update on his return via Twitter.
Physical went great today in KC!! They're going to ease me in OTA & I'm on schedule to be back when the season starts!! Let's go
Good news, of course. The Chiefs won't have any football-related stuff until April so that gives him time to rehab. OTAs are basically practices that will take place this summer. Training camp will be in July/August and the season starts in September.
Players on other teams who had a similar injury late in the season will miss the entire offseason program and potentially start the season on PUP. ACL tears are never good, but if you gotta have one, Week 2 isn't a bad time.
I'm wondering this morning if it's possible that I've forgotten how awesome Charles is. In the words of Bart Scott, can't wait!
