The Kansas City Chiefs are one of the inform teams in the NFL right now and they look set to push the Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders to the limit in the race for the AFC West divisional title.

With the Chiefs defense looking as formidable as ever, they have a great chance at mounting a play-off challenge this season in a very competitive AFC conference.

A big call

Tuesday brought a big decision by the Chiefs however as they have been forced for the second season in a row to place star runningback Jamaal Charles on injured reserve.


Will Jamaal Charles play for the Chiefs again? Have your say by signing up now to become a GMS writer:

Charles suffered a knee injury last season which ended his year prematurely and after finally returning in week four of this season, it has come back to haunt him once again.

Charles is now expected to miss at least eight weeks - which could put him in line for a return to the field ahead of the play-offs - if Kansas make it.

Charles will now undergo a second surgery on his knee and with an earliest possible return coming in week 17, it could very well signal the end of his season.

With Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West once again proving that they can more than carry the load for Kansas, is there still a place for Charles?

The former pro-bowl star was a candidate to be traded this past off-season following his injury last year and the proof that Kansas had capable cover for him.

Now this recent set back could possibly signal the end of Charles' career in Kansas as the 29 year old suffers a big set back to one of his biggest injuries.

It will be interesting to see just what lies in the future for Charles who will surely be looking to get back out on the field as quickly as possible.
