Jamaal Charles hits the practice field for Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday

New, comments

After speculation he would miss time, Jamaal Charles was on the practice field on Thursday for the Chiefs. What does it mean?

UPDATEAndy Reid on Jamaal Charles playing vs. Dolphins: "We'll just see how it goes"

I interrupt your Thursday to bring you this surprising news: Jamaal Charles was on the practice field today for the Kansas City Chiefs.

Well if this isn't the most surprising news I've heard today. A high ankle sprain is usually something that keeps you out for multiple weeks. So I'm very curious to see what it means that Charles was practicing on Thursday. Andy Reid did say that Charles' injury did not look that severe. The Chiefs will issue an injury report later this afternoon where they'll declare Charles a full or limited participant in practice. [UpdateChiefs said he was limited.] Either way, this sounds like really encouraging news for Charles.

A Dolphins beat writer put it best:

For you fantasy football folks, I am guessing we won't know Charles' true status until Sunday morning. From a competitive standpoint, there's no reason for the Chiefs to let anyone know what they're going to do. Make the Dolphins prepare for both.

Meanwhile, Berry and DAT are not practicing. The news on DAT is odd because Andy Reid was just talking on Wednesday that it looked like he'd be ready to go.
