Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles who suffered a quadriceps injury against Jacksonville did not fully participate Wednesday in an afternoon practice according to an injury report released by the team.

“Really the only injury is Jamaal” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said before the afternoon practice. “We’re just taking it slow. I think he’ll be OK for the game. We’ll just see how it all works out.”

Charles who carried the ball 16 times for 77 yards and a touchdown fully expects to play against the Cowboys on Sunday. He wore pads and participated in some light drills in the 20-minute portion of the practice open to the media.

“It’s going to be an exciting week” Charles said. “We’re at home to play our very first game. With a new coach new players … I’m hyped up I’m excited. I wouldn’t miss this game for nothing.”

Charles a native of Port Arthur Texas is especially looking forward to facing the Cowboys though he was not a Cowboys fan growing up.

“I used to play against the Cowboys when I was a small there was a Pop Warner team named the Cowboys and I never did like the Cowboys” he said. “This is a great opportunity to play somebody in Texas. You’re from Texas … all your Texas family and friends will be watching to see how you do.”
