The Kansas City Chiefs are sitting on a secret weapon if they lock up a playoff berth in the next few weeks.
Barring a setback, Charles will rejoin his teammates in January, according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.
At 5.5 yards per carry, Charles boasts the second-highest career average in NFL history. If he can recapture 2014 form -- and the meniscus trim is expected to facilitate that possibility -- he will be an intriguing addition to Andy Reid's offense.
We've spent the past couple of years bemoaning Kansas City's dearth of playmakers, but that's becoming an outdated complaint. Jeremy Maclin is a legitimate No. 1 receiver. Tight end Travis Kelce is the only NFL player to post three consecutive games of 100 or more receiving yards this season. Rookie speedster Tyreek Hill has emerged as dynamic threat after the catch and down the field.
