The Chiefs will be without their top offensive player in Sunday night’s exhibition at Carolina.

Tailback Jamaal Charles will not play vs. the Panthers because of a bruised foot, multiple media outlets reported on Sunday.

The good news? Charles’ injury looks to be minor. According to ESPN.com’s Adam Teicher, the club “didn’t appear concerned that the injury was serious.”

Per B.J. Kissel of the Chiefs’ website, the decision to hold out Charles was “precautionary.”

Second-year pro Knile Davis is the top backup to Charles. The Chiefs also have Cyrus Gray, De’Anthony Thomas and Charcandrick West in reserve at tailback.

In addition to Charles not traveling to Charlotte, backup running back Joe McKnight will also not play on Sunday night, according to Kissel.

    Perfect preseason situation to give Knile Davis, Cyrus Gray and DAT some serious work. Jamaal doesn’t need it.
