Jamaal Charles To Play On Sunday

After missing all of September, Jamaal Charles is ready to make his 2016 debut. Despite being listed as questionable, the running back will suit up for the Chiefs on Sunday night against the Steelers, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com tweets. Jamaal Charles (vertical)

Charles tore his ACL roughly one year ago, ending his season after just five games. Fortunately, the Chiefs have managed to get by with Spencer Ware in the primary role at tailback as he has averaged 4.9 yards per carry in three games this year. Still, he is not as dynamic of a runner as a healthy Charles. The 29-year-old has four Pro Bowl selections to his credit, plus two All-Pro nods.

In five games last year, Charles looked to be on his way to another stellar season with 5.1 yards per carry, four rushing touchdowns, plus 21 catches for 177 yards and a receiving TD. Entering his ninth NFL season, Charles is out to show that he can get back to his old form after major surgery.

    You mean, Jamaal Charles will try to play then will probably get injured again?

    Oh wait, the Steelers can’t tackle so the score will prob be 100-99, giving PIT the edge cause BR is leaps and bounds beyond AS at QB.

      What are you talking about the steelers have one of the best run defense is the league. Just look at the numbers. You right though the steelers do have the edge because BB is miles better than AS.
