Broncos’ running back Jamaal Charles says he’s cutting, feeling normal

With just a month left before training camps open, Denver Broncos running back Jamaal Charles is starting to feel like himself again.

In an interview with Troy Renck of the Denver Channel, Charles says he’s resumed cutting on surgically repaired knees and is getting closer to full strength.

I am doing everything,” Charles said. “I have been cutting the last couple of days with the guys during the offseason workouts. I feel like the way I am cutting that I am back to the normal me, man. It feels good to be moving around again,”

Charles had surgery on both knees last year as he worked back from an ACL injury that ended his 2015 season. He appeared in just three games with Kansas City last year before landing on injured reserve. He rushed for just 40 yards on 12 carries with a touchdown before his season came to an end.

He was limited in work this offseason with an eye toward being ready for training camp. Charles still feels like he has plenty of good football remaining.

“I have been knowing this the whole offseason (that the knee was fine),” he said. “Nobody can take nothing away from me except God when my time is up. I am still 30 years old. I still have a lot of special stuff to do.”

    I have to think situations like this (and maclin) are among the reasons Dorsey went down. This whole situation is just so disappointing for me as a Chiefs fan.

    I want so bad for JC to again prove the doubters wrong and tear it up.

    But…

    I read the head line as Jamaal Charles says he’s getting cut. A few weeks early I guess.

    Wish we would’ve brought him into GB for a look-see.

    Happy to have him in Denver. Thanks KC.

    It’s sad when an athlete doesn’t realize they’re done.

    Two knees, and older RB, love me some JC, but I’d be surprised. He may have a good game but that’s it. I’ll take the under of games he lasts.

    I say he goes for 500 yds and 5 TDs this year. And it will all occur in the two games against KC.

    Sorry Jamaal, but it’s over. And even if it weren’t, that horrible o-line the donkeys have will make it so.
