Jamaal Charles was limited in Kansas City Chiefs practice Tuesday due to a bruised back, head coach Romeo Crennel told the Kansas City Star on Tuesday. It is unclear when Charles suffered the injury, but he will have plenty of time to rest with the Chiefs on a bye in Week 7.
Charles struggled Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, managing just 40 yards on 12 carries for the day. He is still averaging 5.1 yards per carry on the season. Through six games, he has 591 yards rushing and two touchdowns on 115 carries, and 125 yards receiving and one touchdown on 16 receptions.
Fantasy Impact: With two weeks to recover, Charles' playing status for Week 8 against the Oakland Raiders isn't in any kind of jeopardy. Of course, it never hurts to stay up to date on the latest from injury reports.
Charles has produced like an RB1 in most fantasy formats this season, and should remain in your starting lineup going forward despite his Week 6 dud. The Raiders are allowing a mediocre 4.1 yards per carry this season.
