[Kansas City.com] After successfully completing his first practice session in 10 months, running back Jamaal Charles spoke the words the Chiefs and their fans wanted to hear since he tore knee ligaments, ruining his 2011 season.
“I feel I’ve got my swag back,’’ Charles said. “My legs feel fresh. I’ve been out from football for (10 months) so it feels real good to be out on the field again.’’
The other members of the Chiefs’ torn ACL club, safety Eric Berry and tight end Tony Moeaki, also practiced for the first time in almost a year as the Chiefs began training camp at Missouri Western State University.
Like Charles, they reported no problems afterward.
Also practicing were the other starting safety, Kendrick Lewis, and backup linebacker Brandon Siler. Lewis had shoulder surgery immediately after last season and didn’t practice during the offseason. He will wear a brace on the shoulder to prevent further injury.
Siler missed all of last season with a torn Achilles tendon and also didn’t practice in the spring.
