It was just the first day, but Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles made it through Friday's training camp practice and seemed pleased with how it went, to say the least.
"I feel I've got my swag back," Charles said. "My legs feel fresh. I've been out from football for (10 months) so it feels real good to be out on the field again."
Charles is coming back from an ACL tear in September. He's looking to re-gain his 2010 form when he gained more than 1,900 yards from scrimmage on 275 touches.
If Charles' knee is as good as he says, his main concern is now Peyton Hillis , against whom he's competing for playing time. Hillis should take all of the goal-line touches, but Charles at 100 percent should claim the lion's share of the backfield touches just based on his game-breaking ability and versatility. Charles is correctly ranked as the No. 10 RB, according to FFToolbox. But if the Chiefs run it as often as they would like, Charles will have top-5 upside.
