Pro Bowl running back Jamaal Charles was still held out of Chiefs practice Tuesday after hurting his foot in an accident while moving out of the dorms last week.
Charles did not make the trip to Carolina for Sunday's preseason game after getting hurt on the final day of practice at Missouri Western. The Chiefs resumed training camp at their own facility in Kansas City in anticipation of Saturday night's game against Minnesota.
With Charles out, Knile Davis and Cyrus Gray have been getting the majority of snaps.

Cyrus Gray has not made much of an impact in his first two years in the NFL, rushing for 68 yards on 16 carries. Will Gray be more involved in his third NFL season?
Although Kansas City head coach Andy Reid has a pass-happy reputation, he proved last year he can implement a run-oriented attack. Jamaal Charles was hugely successful, but overworked. Should Charles break down, maybe Gray would get more opportunities, especially if Knile Davis’s fumbling issues resurface.
If Kansas City truly had faith in Gray, they would not have drafted Davis last year. A revamped offensive line has the potential to be a detriment, especially since Kansas City’s easy schedule in 2013 has given way to a much tougher one in 2014.
Gray will remain parked on the bench unless there is an injury epidemic. He is nothing more than waiver wire fodder
