Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles is officially listed as probable on the team's injury report for Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints. We break down the fantasy implications.

Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles is officially listed as probable on the team's injury report for Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints. Charles aggravated his knee injury last week against the Buffalo Bills. Charles was a full participant in practice all week and will play Sunday at New Orleans.

Fantasy Impact: Charles has been slow out of the gate in 2012 after spending the offseason recovering from a season-ending knee injury. Fantasy owners grew concerned early in the week when the talk of Charles re-aggravating that same knee injury began to surface. But he will be able to play on Sunday and has a great matchup, so he's safe to start in all fantasy football formats.
