Chiefs Injury Report: Jamaal Charles Takes The Field, Eric Berry Returns


Whenever word spreads that Jamaal Charles might be injured, Kansas City becomes the overbearing mother who drapes her son in more layers than the Michelin Man.

On the heels of this morning’s concussion confusion, the Kansas City Chiefs all-time leading rusher graced the practice field this afternoon.

Fellow Pro Bowler Eric Berry also returned to action, though his reps resided with the scout team.

Berry, who recorded a game-high 14 tackles (eight more than any defender on either team) in the season opener, hasn’t seen regular-season action since suffering a high ankle sprain in Week 2.

Justin Houston (ankle) and Cyrus Gray (hand) were full participants, while Sean Smith (groin) and Travis Kelce (sore ribs) were limited.

Chris Owens (knee) and Junior Hemingway (hamstring) didn’t participate, and Donnie Avery (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday’s contest.

Five starters were sidelined for the St. Louis Rams: wide receiver Kenny Britt (ankle), guard Roger Saffold (knee), defensive end William Hayes (illness), cornerback Janoris Jenkins (knee) and safety T.J. McDonald (concussion).
