Jamaal Charles (knee) to miss Sunday’s game against Colts

84

Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles will miss Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts because of more problems with his troublesome knee.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Charles is still dealing with discomfort in the knee.

Charles had surgery to repair his ACL last October. He’s played in just three games this season, carrying 12 times for 40 yards and catching two passes for 14 yards.

Even when he’s been on the field, Charles has looked less than 100 percent healthy. He received just two snaps and one carry against the New Orleans Saints last week. Charles, who has a career average of 5.5 yards per carry, is averaging only 3.3 in 2016.

The Chiefs listed Charles as a limited participant during practice on Wednesday and Thursday of this week.

Running backs Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West will continue to carry load for the Chiefs against the Colts.
