RB Jamaal Charles has surgery

Kansas City Star - [Full Article]

Among the players who did not practice for the Chiefs because of injury or conditioning reasons: RB Jamaal Charles, cornerback Brandon Flowers, TE Brad Cottam and TE Tony Moeaki and WR Lance Long and WR Quinten Lawrence. Charles and Flowers had shoulder surgery after the season.

Fantasy Impact: 

This seems like a minor deal, but Charles has already been a topic of debate between a couple of scouts here at 4for4, especially concerning his keeper status heading into this season. He appears to be a top-10 fantasy back despite the addition of RB Thomas Jones and the drafting RB Dexter McCluster, who is actually expected to play as a slot WR. Charles left a good taste in our mouths from last year and could be poised for a monster fantasy season.
