KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs were missing several key players, including Pro Bowl running back Jamaal Charles, as they began preparing for Sunday’s game at Tennessee.

Charles missed Wednesday’s workout because of blisters on his feet. Chiefs coach Andy Reid said he believes Charles will be ready to go against the Titans.

Top cornerback Brandon Flowers remained out of practice with inflammation in his knee, and starting free safety Kendrick Lewis has been dealing with a sprained ankle.

Rookie right tackle Eric Fisher, the No. 1 overall pick in the draft, is still undergoing evaluations from a concussion he sustained in last weekend’s 31-7 win over the Giants.

Even punter Dustin Colquitt was out of practice. He hurt his knee last Sunday.
