Jamaal Charles (knee) was a full participant in team drills on Tuesday.

It's the first time in camp Charles has been full-go for 11-on-11s. Charles isn't going to see any preseason action, but is right on course for Week 1.

Chiefs activated OLB Tamba Hali (knee scope) from the active/PUP list.

Hali is expected to get in some practice reps on Tuesday. Hali will be eased into action, and held out of the preseason, but is fully on track for Week 1.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid said Jamaal Charles (knee) is not expected to play this week.

Charles has been seeing more and more work during practice, but the Chiefs are in no hurry to risk his surgically-repaired knee in a meaningless preseason game. It is likely Charles is held out until Week 1. Even with the injury concerns, Charles is shaping up as a back-end RB1.

Chris Conley caught 3-of-3 targets for 66 yards in the Chiefs' second preseason game against the Rams.

Conley ran as the starter opposite Jeremy Maclin in two-wide sets Saturday. He's been working as the X receiver all summer, with Maclin at the Z. Conley beat Rams No. 1 CB Trumaine Johnson a pair of times, and one came on third-and-two that Conley turned into a 37-yard gain by running right by Johnson. Conley will be inconsistent on a weekly basis, but he's a strong best-ball pick.

Chiefs Digest's Matt Derrick said Jamaal Charles (knee) has gotten more work than expected since coming off the active/PUP list on Tuesday.

The Chiefs were expected to bring Charles along very slowly, but he was already participating in 9-on-7 drills during Thursday's practice. It remains unlikely he sees any preseason action, but he is on track to be fully healthy well before Week 1. Charles is a back-end RB1 with the upside for a lot more.

Chiefs claimed DB Brock Vereen off waivers from the Patriots.

Vereen retired earlier this week. Kansas City has apparently talked him out of retirement. Vereen should compete for a role opposite holdout S Eric Berry.

NFL suspended Chiefs OG Zach Sterup four games for violating the league's performance-enhancing drugs policy.

Sterup is an undrafted rookie out of Nebraska. This isn't a way to make the team.
Aug 17 - 4:01 PM

The Kansas City Star reports the Chiefs have been using fifth-round WR Tyreek Hill out of the backfield.

The Chiefs are looking for ways to manufacture touches for Hill, who is unpolished as a receiver but dangerous with the ball in his hands. Hill could make a legitimate impact on the field this season, but it's not going to translate to fantasy value.

Chiefs removed Jamaal Charles (knee) from the active/PUP list.

He is practicing on Tuesday. Charles got in some work during minicamps, but he had yet to see any action in training camp after opening on the active/PUP. Despite the return to practice, it is likely Charles is limited for most of the rest of camp, and it would be surprising if he saw any preseason work. Even so, he should be 100 percent well before Week 1.

Patriots S Brock Vereen announced his retirement from football.

By all accounts, Vereen was having a "good camp" in Foxboro. The reasoning for his retirement is unclear. A 2014 fourth-round pick of the Bears, Vereen wound up appearing in 19 career games. He was a safety/corner hybrid.

Chiefs QB Tyler Bray has a "chip fracture" in his spine.

Bray suffered the injury in the first preseason game. Trainer Rick Burkholder said the injury sounds worse than it is, but there is not timetable for Bray's return. Any missed time will hurt Bray's chances in the backup quarterback battle.

Charcandrick West had four carries for 35 yards in Kansas City's preseason opener.

West played behind Spencer Ware, but had the more effective game. With Jamaal Charles on track for Week 1, West doesn't project for an early-season role. Ware is Charles' preferred handcuff.
Aug 13 - 6:04 PM

Spencer Ware rushed five times for 24 yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs' preseason opener.

With Jamaal Charles (knee) still on the active/PUP, Ware started and clearly played ahead of Charcandrick West. Just like last season, Ware consistently created chunk plays on the ground, and he converted a one-yard touchdown to cap the Chiefs' opening drive. Ware is the backup to own in Kansas City, and he is a nice upside pick in the 13th round.
Aug 13 - 5:42 PM

Chiefs GM John Dorsey said he is confident holdout S Eric Berry will be back in time for Week 1.

The two sides failed to reach a long-term agreement by the July 15 deadline, meaning Berry is technically not under contract until he signs his franchise tender. Dorsey is under the impression Berry will sign the tender and rejoin the team sometime before the start of the regular season. "The agent has said ... at some juncture during this course, he'll show up here," Dorsey said. "Knowing what a prideful professional he is, I think he will show up at the appropriate time." Berry will lock in a one-year, $10.8 million salary once he signs the tender.

The Chiefs expect OLB Tamba Hali (knee, active/PUP) to return in a "couple weeks."

Hali is still rehabbing his February knee scope. He’s unlikely to see preseason action, but there’s no concern over his Week 1 status. Hali will make $3.8 million in the first year of his new deal.
