Speaking Monday, Chiefs coach Andy Reid said it would be a “stretch” for Jamaal Charles (ACL) to play in Sunday’s opener.
“I think it’s a stretch for him to play on Sunday,” were Reid’s exact words. It confirms what the tea leaves have been suggesting the past week. Charles should be considered week to week, and far from a lock for Week 2. Spencer Ware, Charcandrick West and perhaps even Knile Davis will form a committee in Charles’ likely absence. As chairman, Ware will do the heavy lifting on early downs, and will be a legitimate RB2 against the Chargers. West isn’t a viable RB3. Sep 5 – 1:18 PM
