Jamaal Back To Practice On Sunday

The Chiefs had no practice on Saturday, but they will be on the field Sunday afternoon and RB Jamaal Charles will be with them.

That’s the word from head coach Andy Reid speaking to the media during a conference call on Saturday.

“Jamaal will be back in and we’ll see what he can do,” Reid said.

But Reid was sticking to the day-to-day mantra as to whether Charles will play next weekend in Pittsburgh.

“We will see how he does (Sunday),” Reid said. “I’m just going to see how he does in practice.”

The rest of the injury situation according to Reid:

RT Eric Fisher – the No. 1 pick will not practice Sunday because of the shoulder injury that he’s been battling for the last week. Fisher also suffered some sort of injury to his right hand/wrist area and he had to come out of Friday night’s game. But he ultimately returned and finished out the first half.

TE Travis Kelce – the 3rd- round draft choice has a bruised knee and will not practice on Sunday.

WR Jamar Newsome – he’s got a sprained ankle and a shoulder injury and will be out of practice.

CB Dunta Robinson – suffered a sprained shoulder. “He’ll be OK, but he probably won’t practice on (Sunday),” said Reid.

OLB/DE Mike Catapano – will return to practice on Sunday after missing 2 weeks of work because of a calf injury.

DB Sanders Commings – will continue to sit out practice due to his broken clavicle. Reid said he’s a number of weeks away from being able to practice or play. “That injury is normally six to eight weeks to heal. We’ve x-rayed it and it’s healing in nice, but he was injured on the 23rd of July. You have to be real careful of those and you have to lean towards that eight-week mark.”

    I’m thankful that the Chiefs’ injuries so far have been rather mild compared to some other teams. Hopefully, everyone will recover quickly.

    I wonder if Jamaal feels a little push from behind by Knile Davis, who has the potential to be a really explosive player.
