Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles has left his team's game against the Chicago Bears with a knee injury, according to reports.
According to Kevin Patra, Charles left the game against the NFC North side during the third quarter of play with an apparent knee injury. The worst is being thrown around that he might have torn his ACL.
However, reports of any ACL tears will not be confirmed until he has an MRI scan on his knee, which will likely take place tomorrow or later today if possible.

The four-time Pro Bowler went to the ground after a non-contact injury and immediately grabbed his right leg before he was helped off the field. He cut during a run on his right leg, which then it appeared to buckle and this is what forced him to the ground.
Prior to his injury, the Chiefs running back had rushed for 58 yards from 12 touches and also 26 receiving yards. The franchise will just be hoping he isn't out for too long as he is one of their key players on their offense.
Charles has torn his ACL in his left knee in the past back in 2011. The injury was his right knee this time, and the extent of the damage to it is yet to be known.
If the four-time Pro Bowler is out for some time, Charcandrick West and Knile Davis will take over the snaps in the Chief's backfield during his absence.
