Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles (knee), wide receiver Dwayne Bowe (groin) and tight end Anthony Fasano (knee/ankle) went through a limited practice on Thursday. Backup defensive end Mike Catapono (ankle) has already been ruled out for Sunday’s game at Buffalo.

It’s not unusual for Charles, the AFC’s leading rusher, to miss a day of practice each week as he did on Wednesday, or be limited because of blisters or a knee contusion.

“Every team is going through the same thing,” Chiefs offensive coordinator Doug Pederson said. “Every team is beat up, players are banged up. We understand as coaches we need to give them a day, and not practice them, rest ’em; we’ve been able to do that. We just need them all for Sunday, and (Charles) he’ll be one of those guys ready to go.”

Besides Lewis missing practice, the Bills listed as limited: wide receiver Stevie Jackson (hip), quarterback E.J. Manuel (knee), running back C.J. Spiller (ankle), linebacker Manny Lawson (hamstring), and cornerback Brandon Smith (illness).
