As a Texas native, playing the Dallas Cowboys has special meaning for Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles. And despite battling a quad injury that forced him to leave Sunday's 28-2 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, Charles plans to be ready for Sunday's games.
"I'm excited. I don't want to miss this game for the world because everybody from Texas will be watching this game," Charles told the Dallas Morning News. "I think I need to go out there and just show everybody what kind of Texas player I am."
Charles was listed on the team's injury report as a nonparticipant in practice, but the Kansas City Star reported he was doing light drills during the portion of practice open to the media.
Chiefs coach Andy Reid said the team would take it slow with Charles, who rushed for 77 yards and one touchdown before leaving against the Jaguars.
"I think he'll be OK for the game. We'll just see how it all works out," Reid said.
