Kansas City Chiefs News: KC Has 'No Concerns' Regarding Jamaal Charles

If the Kansas City Chiefs are going to make noise in the revamped AFC West, they're going to need to stay healthy. They're also going to need to score a lot of points to keep up with Philip Rivers' Chargers and Peyton Manning's Broncos.

Fortunately for Kansas City, it looks like their best offensive weapon will be ready to go for training camp. Jamaal Charles, who tore his ACL early last season, is on track to be healthy to start the 2012 season. In fact, the Chiefs apparently have "no concerns" over Charles' recovery.

Chris Mortensen reported on ESPN 32 late Friday that the Chiefs have "no concerns whatsoever" about Charles' readiness for the 2012 season. Though Charles won't practice until training camp, his absence from OTAs is purely a precaution. The Chiefs have held fellow ACL patients Eric Berry and Tony Moeaki out of spring practices, too.

Mort stated that the Chiefs are "excited" about Charles' potential in their new offense, run by former Browns and Dolphins coordinator Brian Daboll.

It's certainly excellent news for the Chiefs and Chiefs fans that Charles is recovering so well. Kansas City will need him to be at full strength as they look to return to the playoffs in 2012.
