Jamaal Charles injury update: Chiefs RB is inactive, will not play vs. Miami Dolphins

The Kansas City Chiefs released their inactives for Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins, which is at 3:25 p.m. on CBS.

Jamaal Charles is officially out of Sunday's Chiefs-Dolphins game.

With Charles inactive, the Chiefs will turn to Knile Davis, who carried the ball 22 times last week after Charles went down. Davis is a solid backup running back so while the Chiefs offense may be missing the explosive element with Charles out, Davis can still be a good contributor.

Fox Sports Jay Glazer reported before the game that the Chiefs were planning on sitting Charles unless he could convince Andy Reid he was healthy enough to play.

Charles' status has been a huge source of speculation over the last few days. He suffered what was called a high ankle sprain in last Sunday's game against the Broncos. That injury is generally one that takes multiple weeks to recover from but Charles returned to practice in a limited role on Thursday and Friday.

Prior to the game Eric Berry (ankle) and De'Anthony Thomas (hamstring) were ruled out. This is Berry's first missed start since spraining his ankle last week against Denver. DAT has yet to play this season with a hamstring injury which cropped back up this week.
