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.
Chiefs coach Andy Reid says foot strain for RB Jamaal Charles. X-rays negative.
