Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles will likely play against the New England Patriots on Monday night after he was officially listed as probable Saturday in the team's official injury report.
"He did everything," head coach Andy Reid said of his efforts after practice on Saturday.
Charles had been out since suffering an ankle sprain early in the first quarter against the Denver Broncos on September 14.
Over the course of his near-two-game absence, Knile Davis took over primary running back duties and ran the ball for a combined 54 carries for 211 yards and three touchdowns.
In Charles' return, Davis will fall back into his secondary role.
In only one full game this season, Charles has carried the ball nine times for 23 yards. His 5,846 career rushing yards place him just 225 short of standing alone as the Chiefs all-time leading rusher.
Chiefs rookie running back De'Anthony Thomas, who is still nursing a hamstring injury he suffered before the start of the regular season, is officially listed as questionable for the game.
- S Eric Berry (high ankle sprain) and RB Joe McKnight (Achilles) did not practice and are listed as out for the game against the New England Patriots.
