Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles made an appearance at practice Wednesday for the first time since offseason practices began on May 24.
Charles, who tore his anterior cruciate ligament last October, was present but did not practice. He wore his jersey and shorts but did not have a helmet.
Chiefs coach Andy Reid is expected to give an update on Charles’ status on Thursday, but Reid said last week that Charles isn’t expected to participate in practice until training camp begins in July, at the earliest.
Gonzalez a College Football HOF candidate
A handful of current and former Chiefs are candidates for induction into the College Football Hall of Fame.
Among them are former tight end Tony Gonzalez, who starred at Cal in the mid ‘90s, running backs coach Eric Bieniemy, a star running back at Colorado in the late ‘80s, and general manager John Dorsey, who starred at linebacker for Connecticut in the early ‘80s.
That ballot was emailed this week to over 12,000 National Football Foundation members and current Hall of Famers, whose votes will be tabulated and sent to the NFF’s Honors Courts, which will ultimately elect the class.
The Class of 2017 will be inducted at the NFF Annual Awards Dinner on Dec. 5.
