Description: Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles had a disappointing day for his standards, rushing for 12 carries for 52 yards versus the Raiders.
Insight: Not a good time for him to lay an egg. The Raiders were able to slow him down, and then with a big lead, Andy Reid didn't use him much late in the game. Charles will be a RB1 again next week against the Steelers.

Description: Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles (ankle) is expected to handle his full workload on Sunday.

Description: Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles (ankle, knee) returned to practice on Thursday.

Description: Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles injured his foot on a run in the first quarter, but returned and posted solid fantasy numbers.
Insight: Charles rushed for 91 yards and a touchdown and caught two balls for 20 yards and a second score in just a dozen touches. Hopefully the foot won't get worse over the next week of practice because he has a nice matchup with Oakland in Week 15.

10/23/2014 11:01:00 AM
Description: Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles took a huge hit from Brandon Flower in Week 7, but it doesn't appear it will have a lasting effect.
Insight: Charles rushed 22 times for 95 yards and a score, but on Tuesday admitted the blow had him seeing "light bulbs around my eyes" for a couple of plays. Coming from a guy who suffered a concussion in the Chiefs January playoff game its a concern. But for now keep starting him.

Description: Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles appears healthy and is back to running as we have come to expect from him.
Insight: Charles rushed 22 times for 95 yards and a score. He wasn't involved in the passing game as much as we'd like, but he's returned to RB1 level.

Description: After the big game against New England, Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles looked average Sunday against the 49ers, rushing for just 80 yards on 15 carries and catching one ball for four yards.
