It appears the Chiefs avoided the worst with running back Jamaal Charles.

He was out on the practice field but not working this morning, though he wasn’t wearing a walking boot to protect his injured foot.

According to Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star, the team has ruled out a long-term injury such as a Lisfranc.

Now comes the questions of how long he’s on the sidelines and not practicing, and how his absence causes the Chiefs to adapt their offense. The good news is, it shouldn’t be dramatic on either count.
