USA TODAY Sports

Good morning! Here is today's Kansas City Chiefs news. Enjoy!

Jamaal Charles Unsure When He'll Play Again for Chiefs In Preseason from KC Star

Charles practiced with the Chiefs Sunday for the first time since the injury and moved around well. He repeated what coach Andy Reid had earlier said, that the decision on whether Charles would play in Saturday's preseason game against the Steelers in Pittsburgh would be made late in the week.

Charles didn't play in last week's game against San Francisco at Arrowhead Stadium. If it's possible,the Chiefs would like to get Charles some work against the Steelers or in the final preseason game on Aug. 29 against Green Bay at Arrowhead or both.

Jamaal Charles Returns To Chiefs Practice from The Mothership

A temp of 81 degrees with a partly-clouded sky greeted Charles and the Chiefs, whose mission remains the same from Friday night, study film, identify mistakes and correct them, before taking the field Saturday night in Pittsburgh.

When the Chiefs face the Steelers on Saturday, they'll be led by head coach Andy Reid, who is fully invested in his entire team.

Scheming Success Of Chiefs Special Teams from The Mothership

In the Chiefs two preseason games of 2013, Colquitt has punted 13 times, eight of which landed inside the opponents' 20-yard line. When asked what the first thing was that he noticed about the Toub/O'Dea impact on the Chiefs, Colquitt needed one word.

"Scheme," Colquitt said.

AFC West Notes from ESPN

I wouldn't be surprised if Reid keeps Charles out of game action until the regular season as a precaution.

Right tackle Eric Fisher, tight end Travis Kelce and cornerback Dunta Robinson were all not practicing for the Chiefs on Sunday because of injuries.

Chiefs Learning Life Rough Without Jamaal Charles from KCTV5

"I had fun out there," Davis said. "Jamaal stayed down on the sideline helping me out, trying to coach me through things, telling me what to look for and I think I did pretty good."

Still, it wasn't the same as having Charles on the field.

He returned from a devastating knee injury last season to run for more than 1,500 yards for an offense that was otherwise among the worst in the NFL. Twice, Charles ran for more than 200 yards in a game, showing the kind of breakaway speed that makes him one of the best in the league.

49ers Defense Shines Through First Two Preseason Games from The Vallejo Times Herald

The 49ers defense is upholding its tough-guy reputation, regardless of who's starting, backing up or merely auditioning.

Neither Peyton Manning's Denver Broncos nor Alex Smith's Kansas City Chiefs could score a touchdown against the 49ers' top unit. Same goes for whatever reserves took the field.

"It bodes well," 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said after Friday's 15-13 win at Kansas City.

Nnamdi Asomugha Looks Good, LaMichael James Not So Much Against The Chiefs from The San Francisco Chronicle

It appeared as if the Chiefs and quarterback Alex Smith went into the game wanting to go after cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha. Smith looked his way six times. On four occasions, Smith went elsewhere because of Asomugha's good coverage. He did throw two passes to the receiver on Asomugha's side, but both passes were overthrown, again because of Asomugha's tight coverage.

Kevin Boss Hasn't Been Cleared Medically To Play In NFL from SBNation

Free agent tight end Kevin Boss, best known for his four seasons with the New York Giants, has yet to be medically cleared to return to the NFL, according to the Miami Herald.

Boss is battling concussion issues, having sustained his fourth known concussion last season while playing for the Kansas City Chiefs. The sixth-year pro played in just two games for the Chiefs in 2012 and was cut from the team following a failed physical.
