Two separate orthopedic surgeons examined Jamaal Charles' right foot and independently determined that the Kansas City Chiefs' running back has only a mild strain.

There was some concern that he was suffering a Lisfranc injury, which began the downfall of former Kansas City running back Larry Johnson.

Charles, who will likely be backed up by rookie Knile Davis out of Arkansas, is one of the most dynamic running backs in the NFL, despite missing most of the 2011 season with a torn ACL. For his career, the former third-rounder out of Texas has the highest yards per carry (5.8) of any running back in NFL history (with a minimum of 500 rushes). 

Charles performed well in Kansas City's preseason opener at New Orleans on Friday, scoring a touchdown on the only drive he played in.
