JAMAAL CHARLES DECLARES HE’S READY FOR SEASON
Mon, 14 May 2012 01:39 PM EDT

Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles declared that he’s ahead of schedule in his recovery from a knee injury that ended his 2011 season after only two games and guaranteed to punish opposing defenses in 2012. NFL betting lines

“When I touch that field again, you’re going to feel my pain,” Charles told a newspaper. “You’re going to go thru what I went through. It’s going to be that way for me the rest of my career.”

Charles, the NFL’s 2nd leading rusher in 2010, tore the ACL in his left knee last Sept. after taking an awkward step finishing off a run in the 1st quarter of a Week two loss to the Detroit Lions.

He was coming off of a breakout season in which he gained 1,467 yards, 2nd only to the Texans’ Arian Foster, and averaged almost 6½ yards per carry. Charles also caught 45 passes for 468 yards en route to his 1st Pro Bowl season.

Charles told to a news agency that Chiefs fans shouldn’t worry about him not being a factor this season. Kansas City opens the coming season at home on Sept. 9 in opposition to the Atlanta Falcons.

“If you’re stressing about me not being the same, just watch out for me this year,” Charles expounded. “I’m hungry. I need it this year. I’ve got the enthusiasm for it. I just can’t wait to play football. I can’t wait to bring stuff back to this community and show them how much we can get. I feel a bit like this is a year for us that we can go all of the way. I’m saying that because I feel it in me that I am able to bring a lot to the team this year, being bigger, stronger and maybe even faster.”

The Chiefs 1st full-squad practice is May 21, for which Charles must be cleared by Dr. James Andrews, his surgeon, before he’ll take part. But Charles claimed he feels he’s prepared to train.

“I feel I’m at the point where I can do that,” Charles informed the newspaper. “I feel I can do the same my teammates do. I do it without the coaches around. I catch the ball, I cut, I do a lot of drills and I have been doing this for 2 months.”

Charles claimed he feels “normal” now and is concentrating on building his upper-body strength. He had surgery on the knee in October.

“I feel just like I can do everything everyone else can do and I’m able to do it even much better,” he informed the news agency.

Charles will be joined in the backfield by Peyton Hillis, the former Cleveland Browns RB. Charles asserted Hillis will be a strong addition to the team.

Charles’ 2011 season was short-lived. In a week one loss to the Buffalo Bills, Charles dashed for 56 yards on 10 carries. The following week, against the Detroit Lions, Charles ran for 27 yards in 2 carries which gave him a 13.5 rushing average. Charles suffered an ACL injury. Chiefs head coach Todd Haley confirmed the next day that he is likely to miss the remainder of the 2011 season.
