Woohoo! Jamaal Charles is coming back to the Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs placed him on the Physically Unable to Perform list before training camp due to the ACL surgery he’s coming back from. But now...

I was a little surprised Jamaal started training camp on the PUP list because it seemed like he was close to coming back in OTAs. However, the Chiefs know Jamaal is a veteran and he may not need those camp reps like the young guys - Charcandrick West, Spencer Ware, Knile Davis and Darrin Reaves - do .
Now comes the question of whether he will participate in the preseason at all. I would vote not to play him at all. The risk isn’t worth what you would gain.
