Jamaal Charles suffers stinger, stays in and plays for Chiefs vs. Bills

Jamaal Charles is fine but here's what happened.

Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

Jamaal Charles suffered a stinger in the Kansas City Chiefs Week 10 game against the Buffalo Bills but is fine and has returned to the game. I did not see when or how it happened but the important thing to remember here is that he is fine now.

You can read a little more about stingers here, but it is a common injury.

Charles' injury resulted in some bad timing for the Chiefs. Knile Davis came in to replace him and Davis, who backs up Charles, fumbled the ball. The Bills recovered it and went down and kicked a field goal to make it 10-3 in favor of Buffalo.

Charles missed the first play of the next drive as the CBS cameras showed him on the sidelines talking with the Chiefs trainers. Charles then returned to the field where he immediately scampered up the middle of the field for 17 yards, confirming he is just fine.
