Don’t expect the tight end position to be a big part of the Chiefs’ offense Sunday against the Colts.
There just aren’t many options.
Kansas City coach Romeo Crennel said Friday that tight end Tony Moeaki is doubtful with a head injury. With Moeaki unlikely to play against the Colts, that means the Chiefs will have just one tight end, Steve Maneri, available Sunday. Maneri, a converted offensive lineman, has five catches this season.
Charles has been good all season, but he had just 10 yards on nine carries in a 15-0 loss at Oakland on Sunday. With the receiving options lacking, Charles will need to establish a ground game to keep the Chiefs in the game.
