Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel said he won’t limit RB Jamaal Charles because he is coming off the knee injury. But they didn’t want to place too much of a burden on him, so they signed Peyton Hillis to share the load.
In their perfect world, the Chiefs will find plenty of work for both players. Game circumstances will determine how much the Chiefs use each player against the Falcons and beyond.
“The good thing about that is that I’ve got this guy named [Peyton Hillis], who also could go into the game,” Crennel said. “I don’t think we’ll be disappointed when Hillis goes into the game.
“It’s just by how we feel and how it’s going. You can’t say how a game is going to go. We go up there and we work all these hours at night and put a game plan together, but if a play is not working, then you don’t keep calling that play. Whatever is working, that’s what we’re going to call. That’s why many times, you look at that offensive call sheet, and it has so many plays on it. If they’re not working, you have something else to go to.”
