[Kansas City.com] The Chiefs have at times held the members of the “ACL Club” – running back Jamaal Charles, tight end Tony Moeaki and safety Eric Berry – from training camp practices. But coach Romeo Crennel said the three players would play in Friday night’s preseason opener against the Cardinals.
“We will continue to manage those guys as well, but I think it’s important for them to get reps in the game to begin to find out where they are and how they feel and how those injuries are recovering for them,’’ Crennel said. “So we’ll give them some time and we’ll see how it goes.’’
All three players suffered torn knee ligaments within a two-week period last summer. Moeaki, injured in the final preseason game, missed the entire 2011 season.
Berry was injured early in the season opener while Charles went down in the next game. Both were then finished for the season.
