Jamaal Charles limps off with a left leg injury
The Chiefs running back couldn’t even make it off the field before trainers rushed over.
Kansas City Chief running back Jamaal Charles suffered a left leg injury in the first quarter of Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals. He was hurt on a tackle with less than three minutes left in the first quarter. He started to limp off the field, but stopped, took a knee and had to have the trainers come out to help him to the sideline.
Charles fumbled the ball on the play where he was injured. A review determined that he was down, giving the ball back to the Chiefs. But that would be of little consolation if Kansas City loses its best offensive player. Charles was being evaluated on the sideline as the second quarter began, but later was taken to the locker room.
Charles was off to a big start in this game. He had three carries for 74 yards and a touchdown. His score came on a 64-yard run at the 9:48-minute mark. He entered this game with 807 rushing yards and eight rushing touchdowns on the season. He’s got another four receiving touchdowns this year for the Chiefs.
