Jamaal Charles Foot Injury Doesn’t Seem Serious Despite Tuesday Missed Practice
Jamaal Charles’ foot injury shouldn’t keep him off the playing field for very long. That’s the encouraging news about the Kansas City Chiefs running back who sprained his right foot on Monday.
As The Inquisitr previously reported, Jamaal Charles was taken off the Kansas City Chiefs practice field in a motorized cart. At the time, the extent of the foot injury wasn’t clear.
There was even some skepticism that the injury was serious enough to warrant using the medical cart at all.
Kansas City sports reporter Adam Teicher tweeted multiple updates on the foot injury to keep Chiefs’ fans informed. At one point, he felt moved to point out, “This isn’t a bathroom break, folks.”
Teicher also provided an extensive report on the Jamaal Charles foot injury for the Kansas City Star.
But here’s the short version.
Charles was a indeed no-show to Tuesday’s practice as a result of what the Kansas City Chiefs are now calling a sprained foot.
But he could be back on the field as soon as today. Trainer Rick Burkholder said that they’re taking it one day at a time. Charles is apparently a little sore but already capable of using an exercise bike. The team will determine before Wednesday’s practice if he’s ready to come back.
The Kansas City Chiefs have confirmed that X-rays were negative. There was no broken bones and no ankle ligament damage.
Burkholder: “I’ve had him see two orthopedic surgeons and everybody’s on the same page. He’s got a mild foot strain and he’s day to day.”
