Jamaal Charles put a scare in Chiefs fans during the preseason when he suffered a foot injury and had to be gasp carted off (that's sarcasm -- everyone's carted in the preseason). He won't be scaring anyone on Friday though as he's reportedly not playing.

Pro Football Talk reports that Charles will sit on Friday when Kansas City squares off against the 49ers.

This is hardly surprising given that playing Charles in a game that doesn't count that soon after his injury is just asking for something bad to happen.

What's a little more odd is PFT reporting that the "current plan" is for Charles to miss the Chiefs remaining preseason games.
