ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) The Chiefs placed running back Jamaal Charles on the physically unable to perform list Wednesday, though coach Andy Reid said it should not be considered a setback in his return from a knee injury.
Charles tore the ACL in his right knee in Week 5 last season. He had surgery soon afterward and was far enough along in his recovery that he participated in some drills during mandatory minicamp.
"He's on track and he's played a lot of downs, so he knows what he needs to do to be ready, and I think we'll be fine there," Reid said. "The important thing is that we are patient with him in bringing him back. He knows what to do to be ready and when he's ready, we'll bring him back."
