Chiefs Running Back Jamaal Charles Confident In Healthy Return To NFL

There was no denying that Jamaal Charles was among the top two or three running backs in the entire NFL before he went down with a season-ending ACL injury last season. Unfortunately with Charles went the Kansas City Chiefs' season. Now both hope to bounce back in 2012, and the Chiefs are going to need Charles to return to his game-breaking ability before the injury. Charles is confident that won't be an issue.

Recently the Kansas City Star's Adam Teicher spoke with Charles. The back's message was clear.

Last year, Charles rushed 12 times for 83 yards before the injury. The year before, Charles averaged an incredible 6.4 yards per carry over the course of a full NFL season -- good enough for 1,467 yards on 230 carries.
