Jamaal Charles injury: Chiefs are 'privately' concerned?

Despite KC Chiefs head coach Andy Reid saying Jamaal Charles' injury was just a foot strain, a new report from ESPN states that the team is actually concerned about the injury.


The most important man on the Kansas City Chiefs has the team worried. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the KC Chiefs are 'privately' concerned about the foot injury to Jamaal Charles, which Andy Reid described as a 'foot strain'.

Well then. This is interesting, and not in a good way.

When hearing Andy Reid talk about Charles' injury, I didn't listen to something I say all the time: What coaches say doesn't matter. What they do does matter.

We know what Andy Reid has said, calling Charles' injury a foot strain and noting that x-rays were negative. What really matters, though, is what the Chiefs do with Charles. Will he practice? How many reps does he take on the practice field? That's the real indicator of where things stand. Tuesday morning, the next practice, is when we'll know more.

The injury to Charles happened just before 10:00 a.m. (Arrowhead Time). Reid spoke with reporters after practice a little over an hour later. Even if Charles' injury were serious, Reid likely wouldn't have known much an hour after it happened. That gives you an idea of how early into this injury we are.
