One of the reasons the Chiefs passing game has struggled, is with no Jamaal Charles in the backfield, the young running backs have had trouble picking up blocking assignments…it’s one of the little adjustments offensive coordinator Doug Pederson says has to be made during preseason. Charles, who has been day to day with a foot strain went through some running drills and practiced a bit yesterday.
The Rams, without Steven Jackson are looking for a young running back to step up. On Saturday, only 52 yards on 22 carries, with Isiah Pead getting 19 yards on 11 carries. HC Jeff Fisher says the Packers were doing some things up front that got them away from their run game…he’s not concerned.
