Found September 09, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles seems to be doing fine after he suffered a quad injury in the third quarter against the Jaguars.  Charles is expected to have a big workload for the Chiefs this year and it showed in week one.  Charles was not only the feature back, but he was also lining up as a wide receiver.  Charles finished the game with 77 rushing yards and a touchdown and 23 receiving yards. The Chiefs had a pretty comfortable lead when Charles left the game with an injury so there was no need for Charles to return to the game, but Charles eventually did come back in for a couple of plays which is a good sign for Chiefs fans.  After the game both head coach Andy Reid and Charles said he would be fine. Charles should be ready to go for week two when they have their home opener against the Dallas Cowboys.  Both teams are 1-0 so this should be an exciting game.  The Chiefs will need Charles to show up big in this game.
