Jamaal Charles returns to practice

Running back Jamaal Charles missed last Sunday’s preseason game against the Panthers after suffering a foot injury while moving himself out of the dorm that the Chiefs were staying in during training camp and missed the first couple of practices this week as well, but his absence from the field came to an end on Thursday.

The only difference between his return to work and the days before his injury was that Charles was running the plays of the Vikings as a member of the scout team. Defensive coordinator Bob Sutton explained that the team didn’t want to take snaps away from players who would definitely be in the lineup on Saturday night, a group that doesn’t include Charles at the moment.

“It’s just a way for (Charles) to get work and not take away from guys that are definitely playing in this game,” Sutton said, via ESPN.com. “He gives us a good look in there. I’m glad to see him out there, period.”

Running back De’Anthony Thomas also returned to practice on Thursday, but safety Eric Berry and wide receiver Dwayne Bowe remained out and are unlikely to be in the lineup against Minnesota.

    Charles is used to trying to emulate Adrian Peterson.
