Jamaal Charles injury: Kansas City Chiefs RB has quad injury

Jamaal Charles left Sunday's game briefly due to a quad injury. He returned for one carry before being ruled out for the rest of the game. The injury did not appear to be serious.

UPDATE 2: Jamaal Charles and Andy Reid both confirm Charles is fine. Read details here.

UPDATE 1: Jamaal returned to the game for one carry at the end of the third and then sat out the rest of the game.

Midway through the third quarter of Sunday's Chiefs-Jaguars game, Jamaal Charles landed funny and exited the game with support from the KC Chiefs training staff. The official word on Charles is that he has a quad injury and his return is questionable as of the third quarter.

Again, it does not look serious. He walked off the field on his own. He later walked into the locker room. The TV broadcast speculated that with him riding the exercise bike it could be a quad tightening up.

The Chiefs were holding a 19-point lead and their defense looks to be in control of the game. Perhaps that plays into Andy Reid's decision with Charles here.

Running back Knile Davis replaced Charles in the lineup.

Charles has 14 carries for 76 yards as of midway through the third quarter.

Charles hurt his foot during the preseason with the Chiefs calling it a foot strain. This is a quad so it would appear they are not related. Charles missed the second preseason game with the injury but he returned in the third preseason game.

We will update when we know more.
