Jamaal Charles injury update: Chiefs RB listed as probable, should start in fantasy football

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

Jamaal Charles is listed as probable on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles is listed as probable on the official injury report. He is dealing with a toe/foot injury that kept him out of team practice on Wednesday and kept him limited on both Thursday and Friday.

Charles is considered injury prone, so when he appears on the injury report there's always a lot of worry, particularly from fantasy owners. That said, this injury is considered extremely minor and Charles should be ready to go against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.

The Chiefs are undefeated at 4-0, and Charles has been effective for them this season. He will be an important part of Kansas City's attack against the Titans, though Tennessee has done a solid job against the run so far.

Fantasy Impact: Charles looks to be "all systems go" for this game. If he's on your fantasy team, then he should absolutely be started. If there's a greater than 50 percent chance that he'll play, which there is in this case, then he definitely needs to be started in fantasy football. There's no reason to expect he will get anything less than a full load.
