Jamaal Charles Injury Update: Chiefs RB Is 'Hungry' To Play

After playing in only two games before tearing his knee last season, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles recently told the media he is itching to get on the field again:

"I'm hungry. I want it this year. I've got the passion for it. I can be patient. I just can't wait to play football, I can't wait to bring stuff back to this community and show how much we can win. And I feel like this is a year for us, that we can go all the way because I can feel it. And me, I feel I can bring a lot to the team this year being bigger and stronger, and I don't know, maybe even faster. I can wait awhile. In my mind, I want to get back out there because I want to see where I'm at, but I feel like I'm already there, so I can just wait. Just like when I had my shoulder surgery, I waited the whole training camp to go back. I didn't do anything really during OTAs or minicamp."

Charles, headed into his fourth season in the NFL, knows that his time is limited to get the type of big-money contract healthy RB's of his caliber receive in free agency.
