[Kansas City.com] Running back Jamaal Charles didn’t practice with the Chiefs today, but trainer Rick Burkholder said his strained right foot injury wasn’t serious and that Charles could be back to work as soon as Wednesday.
“When we say day-to-day, he’s literally day-to-day,’’ Burkholder said. “That’s how coach (Andy) Reid and I work. We’ll evaluate him this afternoon. He will get treatment all day today. We will evaluate him tomorrow.”
Charles turned his ankle during a play in Monday’s practice. Burkholder said tests showed Charles’ ankle ligaments to be OK, but Charles had pain in the outside bone of the foot. X-rays were negative.
Burkholder said the Chiefs have ruled out a Lisfranc injury for Charles. That type of injury could be season-ending and even career-threatening.
