Chiefs head coach Andy Reid revealed that running back Jamaal Charles injured his foot while moving out the team’s dorms at the end of training camp.
“He came down a grassy slope there and just kind of rolled his foot over on the curb,” Reid said, via ESPN.com. “It was that simple. That was it. He went up to [trainer Rick Burkholder]. … He was hurting that night, and the next day he woke up and he was feeling a little bit better, and he’s feeling better today.
“We’re optimistic about it. Initially there was some concern. He had all the stuff done on it, the X-rays, the MRIs and all that done on it. Everything is clear.”
Charles was held out of this past Sunday night’s preseason game against the Panthers.
