Jamaal Charles will play during preseason

The Denver Broncos will give veteran running back Jamaal Charles some chances to test his surgically repaired knee during the preseason.

Exactly what the plan is will soon be seen. Oftentimes, seasoned veterans such as Charles play very little or not even at all during the preseason. This is especially the case for veteran running backs coming off injuries.

Charles, who turned 30 in December, spent much of his offseason with the Broncos limited in practices. He is trying to make a comeback after spending two injury-riddled seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs.

With second-year running back Devontae Booker sidelined six-t0-eight weeks with a wrist injury, Charles should be up for a larger workload. Earlier reports indicated that Charles would compete with C.J. Anderson for the lead role.

If Charles remains healthy, he could prove that he is still one of the best at his position.
