Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles, who is on the injury report with a sprained ankle, practiced with the starters on Friday, but coach Andy Reid wasn’t certain how much, if any, Charles will be able to play on Sunday against Miami.
Charles was listed as questionable for the game.
“We’re going to see how he feels after this practice,” Reid said. “He moved around and did a decent job. He looked a little sore, but he did OK. Jamaal wanted to try it (Wednesday), we limited him … and he did some work (Friday) with the ones, and he did some with the scout team, too.
“We’ll evaluate how he feels, let the docs and trainers make a decision … we appreciate his effort. He came in and pushed through this thing, and we’ll make a decision after that.”
Second-year back Knile Davis took the first snap in practice that was open to the media on Friday, but Charles received snaps after that. Charles, who suffered the injury in the first quarter of last Sunday’s game at Denver, declined interview requests on Friday.
Meanwhile, free safety Eric Berry, who also has a sprained ankle, and running back De’Anthony Thomas, who has a hamstring strain, were declared out for Sunday. Thomas, who missed the first two games, practiced on Wednesday before he was shut down on Thursday and Friday.
“He didn’t re-injure it … it’s more precautionary,” Reid said of Thomas. “He’s already waited a couple of weeks and you don’t want any setbacks. It’s just a judgment. You go off of how the player feels, and what you see and your experience with it.”
