As the season went on we were able to give him the ball a little bit more. Coming into this season, we'll be able to mix it up a little bit better than what we did early in the season last year."

Wed, 11 Sep 2013 11:41:42 -0700
Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid expects RB Jamaal Charles (quadriceps) to play in the team's Week 2 game against the Dallas Cowboys despite being held out of practice for precautionary reasons Wednesday, Sept. 11. Charles suffered a quadriceps bruise in Week 1. If for some reason he doesn't play, RBs Cyrus Gray or Knile Davis would replace him. Gray played on passing downs in Week 1 and Davis was used on running plays.
Fantasy Tip: Follow up on Charles' practice status for the rest of the week, but for now, assume that he'll play this weekend.

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (foot) is dealing with a mild foot strain, and he wasn't walking with a boot or a noticeable limp Tuesday, Aug. 13. He rode a stationary bike but didn't participate in practice. "People are speculating Lisfranc and all that," trainer Rick Burkholder said of the mid-foot injury that caused problems for former RB Larry Johnson. "He doesn't have any discomfort there. I've had him see two orthopedic surgeons and everyone agrees he has a mild foot strain." There is no timetable for when Charles will return to action, but it's unlikely he'll play in the preseason game Friday, Aug. 16. RB Knile Davis took most of the reps with the first-team offense Tuesday, and RBs Shaun Draughn and Cyrus Gray are battling for the No. 3 job.
Fantasy Tip: Davis is a late-round flier as a handcuff to Charles. The rookie can be explosive if given an opportunity. His touches will go up if Charles misses time, but even then, the Chiefs probably won't rely solely on him.
Mon, 12 Aug 2013 08:53:51 -0700
Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (foot) left with a foot injury Monday, Aug. 12. X-rays were negative, according to head coach Andy Reid.
Fantasy Tip: Charles owners and those targeting him in the top three picks of drafts can let out a sigh of relief. This reminds us that he's rather injury-prone, though, so if you take him early, it's wise to build strong RB depth around him. When healthy, Charles is one of the best point-per-reception threats in the league. Rookie Knile Davis would probably see the most action if Charles were to miss extensive time.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Knile Davis never returned a kick in a game during his time at the University of Arkansas, but the team is hoping he can be turned into a kickoff return specialist during training camp and the preseason.

Fri, 28 Jun 2013 11:20:25 -0700
Kansas City Chiefs running backs coach Eric Bieniemy has been working with RB Knile Davis to help perfect his running technique. "We've had conversations about stuff on and off-the-field; he's really been like that father-figure to me, helping me and showing me different things, letting me know what I'm about to face," Davis said. "On the field, he's very hard on me; he's my biggest critic. He's a perfectionist, who is on me about the littlest details, but I know it's going to make me better and that's what he's here for; he's definitely doing his job."

Thu, 30 May 2013 08:48:57 -0700
Kansas City Chiefs RB Knile Davis said the fumble problems he displayed in his final season at Arkansas have been fixed. "I think I'll never fumble again," the 2013 third-round pick said. "I had two bad games last year where I fumbled a lot. It was just me not focusing on it."
Fantasy Tip: Davis will compete to be the main backup to Jamaal Charles but isn't worth anything more than a final-round flyer in most leagues. Only an injury to Charles will vault him into having any value.
Mon, 13 May 2013 10:44:57 -0700
