Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles was questioned about his ability to return from the quad injury.
“I’m a tough player,” he had said after the Chiefs win over Dallas. “Nobody knows about it, but I’m really a tough player, and I fight through pain.”
He grinned Sunday when asked if the injury had bothered him.
“I mean, I felt it – you know what I’m saying?” he said, adding, “It was time to go play. There was no turning back.”
The story points out that Charles had 8 yards on 8 carries before the Chiefs took over on their own 16 with under four minutes to play in the game. He carried 8 mores time in that drive for 47 yards alone.
