Chiefs RB Charles returns from knee injury vs. Steelers

PITTSBURGH (AP) Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles is all the way back from a torn ACL in his right knee.

The Chiefs made the four-time Pro Bowler active for Sunday night's game in Pittsburgh. Charles hasn't played since injuring the knee in Week 5 of the 2015 season.

Charcandrick West, who helped fill in during Charles' absence is inactive due to an ankle injury. Cornerback Phillip Gaines is also out for Kansas City.

The Steelers will be without linebacker Ryan Shazier, guard Ramon Foster, safety Robert Golden and wide receiver Eli Rogers.

B.J. Finney will make his first NFL start in place of Foster. Jordan Dangerfield, a former practice squad player, will make his first career start in place of Golden.
