In the NFL, the probable designation means you're almost assuredly going to be healthy enough to play. That's good news for the Kansas City Chiefs who have designated Jamaal Charles as probable two weeks after he suffered an ankle injury in Denver. Charles was apparently close to playing last week but sat out. This week on Monday Night Football, the Chiefs will have their best player.
De'Anthony Thomas is questionable with a hamstring injury. He has not yet played in a game this year because of that injury. Andy Reid said he was more optimistic about Charles playing than DAT so we'll see. The Chiefs are facing a tough opponent so obviously anything helps, including a big punt return on Monday Night Football. Anyone else remember a rookie returning a punt for a score in a big game on national TV? I do (his name was Dexter McCluster).
Meanwhile, Eric Berry has been ruled out for the second consecutive week.
Here's the Chiefs Week 4 injury report:
Eric Berry (ankle)
De'Anthony Thomas (hamstring)
Vance Walker (shoulder)
Sean Smith (groin)
Jamaal Charles (ankle)
Tamba Hali (ankle / knee)
