Chiefs' Jamaal Charles Likely Out For Season With Torn ACL

When Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles went down with an injury during Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions, you could immediately tell it was bad. Charles went down in pain after landing awkwardly on the first down marker, and he had to be carted off the field. It wasn't clear what exactly was wrong with Charles, but any time a running back is carted off the field with a non-contact knee injury, you know it's not good.

Unfortunately for Charles and the Chiefs, it appears the worst fears about Charles' injury are being realized. From Adam Schefter:

Big blow to KC: Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles tore his ACL and is out for the year, according to a source familiar with the situation.

Considering the Chiefs just lost safety Eric Berry for the year with a torn ACL, this is just a crushing blow for them. They already are reeling from blowout losses in each of the first two weeks of the season, and now they have to somehow bounce back from losing two of their best players. Say what you want about the Chiefs as a franchise, but after seeing Matthew Stafford go down the last two seasons, I can certainly empathize with Chiefs fans.
