Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles did not practice yesterday, but he is expected to play this week when the Chiefs host the Dallas Cowboys.  Andy Reid said holding Charles out of practice was just precautionary.  Charles did do individual trills, but no team activities to keep from taking any shots to the leg. Charles also acknowledged that he will play this weekend according to @randycovitz of the Kansas City Star.  This is a big game for Charles because he is from Texas and he will have a lot of family and friends watching.#Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles, who has a quad bruise, said of Cowboys game: "I wouldn't miss this game for nothing."— Randy Covitz (@randycovitz) September 11, 2013If Charles has a set back and somehow isn't able to go the Chiefs would have to use Cyrus Gray and rookie Knile Davis.  It would be a huge loss to the team if Charles misses any games because he is the vocal point of the Chiefs offense.  It will be interesting to see what kind of work load Charles gets this week because the Chiefs have a short week, they will travel to Philadelphia to play against Andy Reid's old team for Thursday night football.Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt Looking for fantasy football advice?#Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles, who has a quad bruise, said of Cowboys game: "I wouldn't miss this game for nothing."— Randy Covitz (@randycovitz)
