Ex-Patriot Morris among running backs to try out with Chiefs

The tryout included Mike Cox, Jalen Parmele, Dimitri Nance, Sammy Morris and Chris Jennings.

The Chiefs placed Charles, their best offensive player, on injured reserve Wednesday with what initial tests have indicated was a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.
