Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles will sit out Kansas City's preseason game against the Panthers in Charlotte on Sunday night because of a bruised foot, the team announced before the game. Charles did not travel with the team.
The 27-year-old, who rushed for 1,287 yards and 12 touchdowns in 15 games last season, has missed only one game the last two seasons after playing only two in 2011 due to a torn ACL.
Charles, a three-time Pro Bowler, is entering his seventh season with the Chiefs. Knile Davis will start in his place.
