Chiefs | Likely to use running back committee

Tue, 10 Nov 2009 12:24:52 -0800

Adam Teicher, of The Kansas City Star, reports the Kansas City Chiefs are likely to use a running-back-by-committee with free-agent RB Larry Johnson (Chiefs) gone.

The team still appears hesitant to give the ball to Charles in running formations.

Chiefs | Running backs get limited opportunities in Week 9

Mon, 09 Nov 2009 08:09:03 -0800

Adam Teicher, of The Kansas City Star, reports Kansas City Chiefs RBs Jamaal Charles and Kolby Smith combined to average more than five yards per carry in Week 9. However, the team gave the tandem the football only 10 times during the game. The Chiefs ran a total of 12 running plays, while QB Matt Cassel threw 39 times. The Chiefs' opponent, the Jacksonville Jaguars, surprised the team by playing mostly a 4-3 defense during the game. "It wasn't what we practiced against," head coach Todd Haley said. "I thought for the most part we had an idea of what was going on. (The offensive imbalance) was all predicated (on the defense). On a lot of our runs, there was a lot of pressure coming. They were bringing safeties from both edges, run blitzes we call them."

Chiefs | Charles has opportunity to be featured running back in Week 9

Wed, 04 Nov 2009 09:42:43 -0800

Adam Teicher, of The Kansas City Star, reports Week 9 will provide the Kansas City Chiefs with an opportunity to get a good look at RB Jamaal Charles as their featured back due to the suspension of RB Larry Johnson. "I think this is an opportunity for Jamaal," head coach Todd Haley said, "without a doubt." Charles makes more sense as a featured back in Week 9 over RB Kolby Smith (knee) because Smith hasn't played since injuring a knee midway through last season. However, Charles has only 23 carries in seven games this season, and most have been draws and other runs out of passing formations. Charles also has had fumbling issues.

He added, "It was instant. Right there all of the jitters went out of my and I'm good now. I am very confident in my body."

Chiefs | Smith could come off PUP soon

Tue, 13 Oct 2009 00:30:15 -0700

Adam Teicher, of The Kansas City Star, reports Kansas City Chiefs RB Kolby Smith (knee) becomes eligible to return to practice and the active roster next week. He has been on the team's physically unable to perform list the first part of the season. Smith may eventually receive a look at least as a part-time back. Smith said he feels good, but he still needs to go through contact drills to see how his knee responds. "Whenever they say I can play, I'll be out there. I want to make sure I'm right before I come back," Smith noted.

Chiefs | Charles could be running out of time to prove worth

Thu, 08 Oct 2009 20:47:01 -0700

Adam Teicher, of The Kansas City Star, reports Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles' time to prove his worth to the team could be running out. RB Kolby Smith (knee) is eligible to be activated later in October, and Smith could become the team's No. 2 running back ahead of Charles. RB Dantrell Savage is another option to become the primary backup to RB Larry Johnson. Charles could still figure into the team's plans. If the Chiefs don't view him as a regular, then he could still be used as a spot player capable of causing matchup problems for opposing defenses.

Chiefs | Johnson being pulled on passing downs

Mon, 15 Sep 2008 15:07:53 -0700

Adam Teicher, of the Kansas City Star, reports Kansas City Chiefs RB Larry Johnson is being pulled from passing downs because the team believes running backs Jamaal Charles and Kolby Smith are more versatile. Johnson's best value comes when the team is protecting a lead, which they have yet to do this season. He was on the field for only one of the team's four plays in the final minute of their Week 1 game and was not part of their lone touchdown drive in Week 2.
