Jamaal Charles Has Stem-Cell Surgery; Vows to Be Ready for Next Season

Here’s hoping Jamaal Charles can return sooner than later.

The Kansas City Chiefs star running back was lost for the season when he tore his ACL in Week 5 against the Chicago Bears. Normally a 9-12 month rehab process with regular explosion returning even later, Charles is hoping to circumvent the regular rehab process.

According to Jenny Vrentas of the MMQB, the 28-year-old recently underwent stem-cell treatment on the strength of being curious.

"I just had a small procedure done on the knee a few days ago, but I have been back at the facility rehabbing with the trainers and some of my teammates who are also on injured reserve.

"[The procedure was] Stem cells. I had it the first time when I had my surgery, and I had to go back after six weeks for another treatment. It went well.

"It’s something different. Every year, somebody comes out with something different. When I tore my left ACL four years ago, I didn’t do it. This is a new thing that came out to get you back faster, so I just tried it."

Charles finished the regular season with 71 carries for 364 yards, and four touchdowns.
