Andy Reid sees RB Jamaal Charles knee checkup as a positive

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Chiefs coach Andy Reid said it’s not necessarily a cause for alarm that running back Jamaal Charles went to see Dr. James Andrews, as he continues to gradually work his way back from last year’s torn ACL.

“I think it’s a positive thing,” Reid said, via Terez Paylor of the Kansas City Star. “He’s been checking with Dr. Andrews. This person has done his surgery, which this isn’t uncommon. Let’s just figure out what it is and go from there.“He had a little swelling in it, so let’s figure out what it is.”

Fantasy Impact: 

The problem for the Chiefs now is Spencer Ware suffered a concussion last week leaving Charcandrick West as their top back. If Ware and Charles can't go, they are now a bit thin at the position, but Knile Davis is back on the market for a possible reunion.
