JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Observed in the locker room after the Kansas City Chiefs' 28-2 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Charles appears OK: Running back Jamaal Charles had his thigh stepped on during the second half and injured a quad muscle, but he should be ready for next week’s game against Dallas. Charles came back for one play after the injury and then left the game for good. He could have played had the Chiefs needed him.

Fisher holds his own: Rookie tackle Eric Fisher, the first overall pick in the 2013 draft, overcame a slow start to play well in his first NFL game. "He had one [bad play] early, when they got him on a bull rush," coach Andy Reid said. "From then on, he just settled down. I thought he played good, solid, tough football."

Poe coming of age: Nose tackle Dontari Poe had perhaps his best game as a pro. He was a force in the pass rush with 1.5 sacks and against the run. "It’s important that he brings that every week," Reid said. "On defense, you want to be strong up the middle. He gives you that opportunity."
