Jamaal Charles is “fine” after leaving with quad injury
Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles missed most of the preseason after suffering a foot injury. He returned today at Jacksonville, but Charles left with an injury to his quadriceps muscle.
After the game, both coach Andy Reid and Charles said Charles, who was stepped on, will be fine. A league source added that Charles will be “totally fine,” which is apparently even better than fine.
Charles actually returned for a pair of carries, and he then exited because the score was 28-2.
So look for Charles to be back in the lineup next Sunday, when the Chiefs host the Cowboys.
