Jamaal Charles Leaves Practice on a Cart

Looks like the injury monster took it’s ugly head out to Kansas City this morning. RB Jamaal Charles has left practice on a cart. The severity of the injury is unknown, but it is an injury to his leg. He has already blown out his ACL once in his career, could it be as serious as that again?

I am sure Chargers Coach McCoy would call it some sort of a “ding.” Charles figures to be a huge part of the Kansas City offense this season, so any significant amount of time missed would be a huge blow to the team.

I hate facing Jamaal Charles. He has that ability to take it to the house any time he touches the football. He is so quick and such a huge threat on the football field. He can beat you in so many ways.

It sucks that players have to go down with injuries before the year even starts. Hopefully he is able to recover quickly from the injury. We will update this post when the severity of the injury is known.

      It’s just a foot sprain so now you can sleep good tonight.

  • Stefanie Smith

    Cart = serious. I hope I am wrong.

    I wonder if all these injuries have anything to do with the steroid issue in MLB, and keepin a closer eye on other sports.

    • Stefanie Smith

      I agree, Michael. I truly believe there is a correlation between steroid use and these injuries. They are bulking up on the outside but their internal bone/muscle structure is weaker. Think it is safe to say that there are other physiological side effects from prolonged use also. I don’t know what they are, though.

      Actually it might be due to what the NFLPA negotiated less work an more money. See from what i gathered, that someone mentioned on Bolt Beat in post somewhere, tendons need more the work to stay flexiable. muscles need the rest. and with no more two-a-days, we are seeing more acl an “sprains” than i can remember.

  • veazy

    I know he’s part of a division rival, but Jamaal Charles is really a good runningback and I appreciate watching him make good runs, just not when the Chargers are playing against him.

  • JoseSD

    That sucks for Chiefs fans but I guess it’s not an acl tear this time. Jamaal Charles always pulls one big play against the Chargers, but one thing I find funny is how Charles was one of the league leaders in rushing and they have all these pro bowlers I think it was six on defense and they didn’t win any games or even have a lead in a game until game 9 and now they think Alex Smith and Andy Reid who couldn’t win more than 4 games with the “Dream Team” are gonna lead them to the playoffs

      I have given this same speech so many times.. lol. So true.

  • joerockt
