Jamaal Charles Hopes To Be Healthy By This Summer

One of the three early ACL injuries for the Kansas City Chiefs came to a pretty important player -- RB Jamaal Charles. The Chiefs star running back tore his ACL against the Detroit Lions in Week 2 and that's a season-ending injury so, like S Eric Berry and TE Tony Moeaki, we haven't seen much of Charles this year.

But the Chiefs running back does indeed live on. He did a podcast with ESPN's Fantasy Football crew this week and they asked him when he would be able to return from his ACL injury.

"I think I should be ready by OTA's, working out with the team," Charles said (via Arrowhead Addict). "I got hurt early so I had a lot more time to like, to get myself back and it only takes six months. So by the time OTA's it should be like eight, seven months."

That would be sometime in May or June, which is great news for the Chiefs. It's never a good time for a player to tear an ACL but I suppose a positive out of this situation is that all three of those guys suffered the injury early in the year which gives them lots of time to rehab and get back at it next offseason.

That's good to hear. Guys come back from that injury better than ever with advances in tech.

Still, stating the obvious I know, we've got to draft at some point a legit back to split time with him since the life of a RB is so short in this league.

How likely is it he'll be diminished? I expect him to play tentatively for a while, but do players make it back all the way from these kind of injuries? Any examples of who's come back full force? This isn't a part of football I've paid much attention to, but I sure will next year.

Wes Welker had the same injury and came back fine.

I know running backs have a little different life after this normally but most of the examples we have seen are older guys. Charles is what 25?

Clark Hunt is cheap. He probably skimped on the surgery. Pioli will draft a RB with our 1st pick and we'll be stuck with Cassel.

This is true but more for average to good backs.

Charles is an elite back in the league, IMO. Hope he comes back fine. But it doens't matter if we still have Cassel handing him the ball.

Charles is a stud; had him on my fantasy team the last 2 years.
I was just thnking how RBs just don't last long anymore which is why McDaniels was a retard to waste a 1st round draft pick on one. Teams just don't do that near as much as they used to. Now you pick up a couple and plan on one going down.

Since the injury was early in the season he will have more recovery time than a player who gets injured late in the year and have surgery in the offseason. He may not be 100%, but he should be further along than most.

Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles tweeted Friday morning that he had cleats back on for the first time since undergoing ACL surgery.

"(F)elt weird but I'm gettin back into it," Charles wrote.

The Chiefs lost their star running back in Week 2, when he tore his ACL. It appears he's recovering on schedule, so with almost a full year between the injury and the 2012 season opener, he should be fully recovered for Week 1.

Only time will tell when Charles will be up to full speed, though. Quite often that doesn't happen until the second season back from a torn ACL. Nonetheless, since he racked up nearly 2,000 combined yards in 2010, he's going to be an intriguing early-round draft option in 2012 for fantasy owners willing to throw caution to the wind.

You can rush back from an ACL, but a better plan, to maximize recovery, would be to take it more slowly.

I would hope that the Chiefs limit the workload on Charles, Berry and Moeaki until the early preseason.

If handled correctly, it's very possible that all 3 could come back 100%, with no issues.

If we stick with Cassel, we will be lucky to have a top ten defense and a top 20 offense.

It really does make that much of a difference.

At least in my opinion, it does.

It's exciting to think we get those three back, have good picks in the draft and a pocket full of cash we need to spend on players...and it all gets overlooked because of a fucking candy wrapper and a shitty quarterback.

That actually looks pretty good. I could live with that for a couple of years while we locate and acquire a real quarterback.

Plus, with Berry returning (assuming he's okay) and after bringing in a true nose, the defense could take a step forward. An offense that could start racking up some TOP would help this defense a ton.

Too bad it's a pipe dream.

Far too much hinges on Cassel. I think we're stuck with him. The experts who claim to be "in the know" say we are and I have no reason to doubt it after Daboll's hiring and it's like they say; "For want of a nail, the war was lost."

Another thing to consider with Charles is that his injury came without contact or pressure to further the damage. The same thing goes for Moeaki.

The one that scares me a bit is Berry.

I hope he didn't make it a lot worse of a tear by going back in...if that is the case, the trainers that let him back in the game should be tarred and feathered.

I doubt it man. Didn't he tear it when Johnson hit him?

Thats my point.

I think that they should have recognized the injury and not let him back into the game until further tests were done.

It's very possible that he went out with a sprain from the dirty hit by Johnson and completely tore it on that first play he went back in for.

There are severity of tears and I hope he is able to not only return to form, but not lose his elite abilities that make, when paired with his preparation, him a guy that will develop into an elite player.

We need him policing that secondary because he is what could make this defense not just really good...but quite possibly what will emerge as the best defense in the league with a couple more pieces.

Kinda hope Johnson stays in Buffalo, so EB can take his head off.

It isn't his speed that will be affected, but rather his ability to make cuts.



You can rush back from an ACL, but a better plan, to maximize recovery, would be to take it more slowly.

I would hope that the Chiefs limit the workload on Charles, Berry and Moeaki until the early preseason.

If handled correctly, it's very possible that all 3 could come back 100%, with no issues.

They're all young enough. Priest claims he was faster after his ACL recovery, and if there's one thing that guy could go it's stop and start in a flash.

Besides... what do we get if Charles comes back at 80%? A running back who can get a mere 5.0 YPC instead of 6.4?

The hard part about rollerblading isn't the stress on your knees. The hard part about rollerblading is telling your dad you're gay.

Hopefully when the Chiefs scrubs are running the scout team they'll paint bulls-eyes on the knees of the guy playing the part of Johnson.

RB Charles says he's ahead of schedule with rehab

April 09, 2012 2:34 p.m. - by Bob Gretz

RB Jamaal Charles (knee) on the status of his rehab: “I'm doing hard running right now. When I was down in Pensacola (Florida), Dr. James Andrews, who did my surgery, said I was ahead of schedule. They'll probably be smart about it for OTAs, be smart about me not doing that and they'll probably wait until training camp.”

Even if we get him back at 80% of what he was, that's better than anything we're trotting out there now.

At 8% he's better than Jones

I'm just glad it looks like he's coming back healthy for now.

Jamaal Charles is kind of like the invulnerability sphere in Doom. You only get God mode for a short amount of time, you better use it on something important like killing a cyberdemon or winning a Super Bowl.

Right now the Chiefs picked up the sphere and are wasting time killing a room full of imps.

He got married.

Good or bad?

Will he be too comfortable? Too complacent?

Will the succubus ruin his life and his game?
