The Chiefs continued to up running back Jamaal Charles’ workload on Wednesday, as he stayed on the field for the install period after pre-practice warmups and stretching — a change from Tuesday.
But don’t expect them to rush their star back into action.
“He’s doing good — I’m not asking him to come out here and run for 300 yards today,” running backs coach Eric Bieniemy said. “It’s a process, and we just want to gradually get him back going.”
Bieniemy said trainer Rick Burkholder has done a nice job helping Charles rehab the torn ACL he suffered in October. Charles was just activated from the physically-unable-to-perform list Tuesday.

“We just want to make sure we’re doing it right and taking our time and making sure he’s ready,” Bieniemy said. “Now, he looks good — but I don’t want to rush him. I just want to make sure that he’s comfortable with where he’s at. We’ve just got to be patient.”
