If the Chiefs are to return to the playoffs next season, they will need their offense to improve. Kansas City finished 31st in points per game and lacked the firepower needed to consistently keep pressure on opponents. A major reason for the troubles were the season-ending injuries suffered by two key offensive weapons early in the season — TE Tony Moeaki and RB Jamaal Charles. Moeaki tore his ACL in the final preseason game, and Charles suffered the same injury in Week Two. Moeaki was a key part of the passing game as a rookie in 2010 and was missed greatly, as tight ends made just 34 receptions in his absence. Charles was a Pro Bowler in ’10 and the only true game-breaking running back on the roster. We hear that both are doing their rehab in Kansas City and are on schedule to be available by the start of training camp.
