Jamaal Charles Injury Update: Chiefs RB Is 'Ahead Of Schedule' In Rehab

If there's any NFL team in need of a breath of fresh air right now, it has to be the Kansas City Chiefs. The team fired its head coach Todd Haley on Monday as the cherry on top of a miserable season all around that includes injuries to top players, home losses that were beyond embarrassing, locker room fights and drama in and around the team's front office and coaching staff. So when a player like Jamaal Charles gives an injury update, the fan base and team can only hope it's good news.

The words from Charles himself say everything that needs to be said: he's ahead of schedule. Charles went down in week two this season with a torn ACL, but apparently his rehab is going better than expected. That's great news for the Chiefs who clearly aren't the same team without their best offensive weapon. Charles' is a beast out of the backfield, with a historically good season last year where he flirted with the most yards/carry in NFL history with 6.4.

The Chiefs have the potential to return to respectability very quickly in 2012. Charles' health can be a big part of that.
