Chiefs | Jamaal Charles has mild sprain

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (foot) is dealing with a mild foot strain, and he wasn't walking with a boot or a noticeable limp Tuesday, Aug. 13. He rode a stationary bike but didn't participate in practice. "People are speculating Lisfranc and all that," trainer Rick Burkholder said of the mid-foot injury that caused problems for former RB Larry Johnson. "He doesn't have any discomfort there. I've had him see two orthopedic surgeons and everyone agrees he has a mild foot strain." There is no timetable for when Charles will return to action, but it's unlikely he'll play in the preseason game Friday, Aug. 16. RB Knile Davis took most of the reps with the first-team offense Tuesday, and RBs Shaun Draughn and Cyrus Gray are battling for the No. 3 job.

Fantasy Tip: Davis is a late-round flier as a handcuff to Charles. The rookie can be explosive if given an opportunity. His touches will go up if Charles misses time, but even then, the Chiefs probably won't rely solely on him.
