Everyone is excited to see Jamaal Charles return next season. Charles will need some help next season after suffering a torn ACL in 2011.
The good part about the injury is that it did not occur late during the 2011 season. It went down in Week 2 in Detroit, and it gave Charles a lot of time to recover so it does not carry over to 2012.
While Charles is capable of coming away with a big run due to his breakaway speed, he will need some help to carry the pigskin. We learned in 2010 that having multiple active running backs on the team can lead to success.
For the Chiefs, having Thomas Jones work with Charles helped them rank first in the league in rushing. With a stronger finish to the 2011 season, can Kansas City achieve the rushing title as a team again?
Since Jones is without a contract and it is expected that he may retire, Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli will need to figure out who can come to Kansas City and help the Chiefs be a force when it comes to rushing the football on offense.
