Chiefs finally healthy again

Postby stomperrob » Sat Jul 28, 2012 2:07 pm

These three guys are crucial to the success of this team - they need to stay healthy and live up to the expectations all of them have:

Chiefs’ Charles, Berry and Moeaki all practice on first day of camp
By ADAM TEICHER
The Kansas City Star


ST. JOSEPH -- ST. JOSEPH | After successfully completing his first practice session in 10 months, running back Jamaal Charles spoke the words the Chiefs and their fans wanted to hear since he tore knee ligaments, ruining his 2011 season.

“I feel I’ve got my swag back,’’ Charles said. “My legs feel fresh. I’ve been out from football for (10 months) so it feels real good to be out on the field again.’’

The other members of the Chiefs’ torn ACL club, safety Eric Berry and tight end Tony Moeaki, also practiced for the first time in almost a year as the Chiefs began training camp at Missouri Western State University.

Like Charles, they reported no problems afterward. Their return lifted the spirits of coach Romeo Crennel.

“They look pretty good,’’ Crennel said. “They’re running around and they’ve got some bounce in the step so I feel pretty good about them.’’

Also practicing were the other starting safety, Kendrick Lewis, and backup linebacker Brandon Siler. Lewis had shoulder surgery immediately after last season and didn’t practice during the offseason. He will wear a brace on the shoulder to prevent further injury.

Charles is obviously the headliner of the group and is probably the one guy out of all the players this year that i would love to know how his year will end up. With him basically being almost a full year removed from injury, he's very tempting as I had him 2 years ago and saw what he his capable of even in a time share. Thomas Jones had well over 200 carries that year and Charles still killed it. It's not Hillis that scares me, its his rehab from the injury. Hopefully preseason will tell us what we need to know.

This is where I stand. I had him two years ago as well and he was amazing in such limited time. I can only imagine what he will do this year if he is full recovered from that injury.
A win next week and all is forgotten.

I can't see Charles getting back to form till mid season. Normally it takes guys a year to get comfy again but since it was the beginning of the season he has had more time than normal.

The guy I'm most intrigued with here is Bowe. He was on fire till Cassel got hurt

I'm not buying Charles. He's going to get picked somewhere in the 2nd round in most formats and that's far too high for a RB coming off of a major injury who has never been much of TD scorer to begin with. The yards might be there, but if he's only scoring 6 or so times, I can't buy in at that price.

I really need Berry to return to top 3 DB status for my IDP leagues, and I have Moeaki in a couple dynasties - he looked good what little we saw of him.
