KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Chiefs listed Jamaal Charles as questionable for Sunday night's game at Pittsburgh, while fellow running back Charcandrick West has been ruled out with an ankle injury.
Chiefs coach Andy Reid said Friday that how well Charles comes out of the final practice of the week would dictate whether he makes his season debut. The four-time Pro Bowl selection has not played since Week 5 last season, when he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.
The only other running backs on the active roster are Spencer Ware and Knile Davis.
Kansas City could also be relying on a makeshift secondary against Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown & Co. Phillip Gaines is questionable with a knee injury and fellow cornerback Marcus Peters missed two practices this week with the flu, though he was a full participant in Friday's workout.
