Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles is expected to make his season debut in Week 3 against the New York Jets, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Charles is ready to play, but the Chiefs are being cautious, wanting him to be fully healthy before he returns, the source said.
Therefore, he will miss Sunday’s game against the Houston Texans.
Charles did not play in last week’s season-opening victory over the San Diego Chargers, as Spencer Ware finished with 199 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown.
Charles missed much of last season after tearing the ACL in his right knee in Week 5.
