Booth picked up 65 caps after making her national team debut in 2002 at the age of 17. She most recently played for Sky Blue FC of the National Womens Soccer League. "It just felt like it was my time to move on," she said in a phone interview from her hometown of Burlington, Ont.KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Chiefs coach Andy Reid could have quite the pleasant problem come Monday night.Pro Bowl running back Jamaal Charles is expected to return to the field after missing last weeks win in Miami with a high ankle sprain. And that means Reid will have to figure out how to distribute touches against New England around a very crowded offensive backfield.Knile Davis ran for 132 yards and a touchdown against the Dolphins. Throw in Joe McKnights play, which included six catches for 64 yards and two scores, and a few touches for Cyrus Gray and suddenly the Chiefs have an abundance of talented runners just waiting to tote the ball.Even running back-turned-wide receiver DeAnthony Thomas finally could be available against the Patriots. The rookie has missed the first three games of the season with a hamstring injury.Everybody is getting a chance, Reid said. Theyre playing their hearts out, making sure they get everything down. Im proud of the guys the way theyre filling in and doing their job.Still, none of the other options at running back offers what Charles can provide.Hes the biggest big-play threat on the roster, the owner of the two longest touchdown runs in Chiefs history. He has more than 1,000 carries, fifth-most in franchise history. He has 161 carries of at least 10 yards, trailing only Larry Johnson. And he has the three biggest single-game outings in franchise history, each of them going for at least 226 yards.Davis has run for 456 yards in his entire career. McKnight spent last year out of football entirely. Gray has only had 24 carries over parts of three seasons.Jamaal is our running back, McKnight said simply, and we just have to stay ready.Having so many options at least takes some of the pressure of Charles to quickly get back on the field. He tried to play last week against the Dolphins, even taking part in some of the pre-game stretching, only to decide that he wasnt healthy enough to play in thhe game. Dallas Cowboys Jerseys. Even if he can play, theres a good chance that the Chiefs will limit the amount of touches that he gets, splitting snaps and carries with Davis and the rest of their running backs.That creates a different set of problems for the Patriots, too.Charles is quick, elusive and a threat to catch the ball out of the backfield. Davis is a big, physical running back who prefers to chip away at defences between the tackles.Theyre different, but theyre both very good, Patriots coach Bill Belichick said. They both can hit the home run ball. Theyve both got great long speed a€” they have that in common. But their styles are a little different. But theyre both very dangerous. Strong guys, strong runners.Patriots defensive co-ordinator Matt Patricia said that Charles and Davis are used in similar ways, but their unique skillsets tend to create vastly different results.Obviously, Charles is quite a dynamic and explosive player, but they have really got quite a few guys at the position now, with Knile Davis coming on and having a tremendous game, Patricia said. All the way to Joe McKnight, who you will see on field also, who is a very explosive player and a dynamic guy who that can make a lot of things happen very quickly.In other words, an injury to Charles may not be enough to keep Reid up all night. But it might just be enough to keep Belichick, Patricia and the Patriots staff from getting some rest.They certainly have some very dangerous weapons in the backfield that they can take advantage of, Patricia said, whether to match up in the passing game or in the running game, and exploit pretty quickly.Notes: Pro Bowl S Eric Berry (high ankle sprain) did not practice Thursday. ... DE Mike Catapano was officially placed on IR this week. Catapano has been out since training camp with what Reid would only describe as a mysterious illness.___Online: http://pro32.ap.org/poll and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL Wholesale Hoodies NFL Shirts Outlet Jerseys NFL Wholesale Cheap NFL Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
