Charles has trained this offseason with a pan to avoid some of the injuries that plagued his 2014 season, and his body feels healed up, Adam Teicher of ESPN reports. "My body has healed up, rested up," Charles said.

Charles suffered through a plethora of injuries in 2014 including ankle, foot, back, shoulder, knee and hamstring issues. Despite the problems, he finished the campaign with a respectable 1,033 yards and nine touchdowns in 15 games. Injuries are always tough to predict, and the relatively slight frame (5-11, 199 pounds) of Charles tends to lead to problems when taking the constant pounding associated with the running back position. However, if he can avoid or limit the injury issues in 2015, there's no reason to believe he can't top his numbers from last season.

Charles (hamstring, ankle) had 13 carries for 54 rushing yards and two catches on three targets for eight receiving yards during Sunday's win over the Chargers.

Charles eclipsed the 1,000-yard mark for the fifth time in the last six seasons, with his one sub-1,000 season coming in 2011 when he played in only two games before suffering a torn ACL. He broke the 100-rushing yard mark just once this season, and his output in the passing game was well down from last season, catching just 40 passes for 291 yards and five touchdowns. Charles is signed through the 2017 season, so he should be fully expected to be the lead back next season, though he's had a high number of touches over the last few seasons and he just turned 28.

Charles (hamstring/ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers, the Chiefs' official site reports.

Though we'd expect Charles -- who practiced in a limited fashion all week -- to be available Sunday, the questionable designation suggests that the running back's status should be verified in advance of the Chiefs' 1:00 ET kickoff on Sunday.
