Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles one of many injuries for KC in Wildcard loss


Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles one of many injuries for KC in Wildcard loss

As reported earlier, Jamaal Charles @jcharles25 was knocked out of the game Saturday in Indianapolis with a concussion during the first drive of the game. Chiefs receiver Donnie Avery and cornerback Brandon Flowers were also sidelined with concussions. Back-up running back Knile Davis @BoobieKnile_Era, was taken off the field in the fourth quarter with a knee injury as the Chiefs watched a 28 point third quarter lead evapotate before falling 45-44 to the Colts.

Fantasy Analysis:

When Jamaal Charles went down, the hopes of the Kansas City faithful went down with him. Little did they know Alex Smith and Knile Davis would step up so big. KC opened up a 24-7 lead behind Smith, who added 57 yards rushing to his 378 through the air, and Davis, who had 100 total yards and two touchdowns before being hurt himself. As the injuries mounted, we saw an historic comeback victory by the Colts who will travel to Foxborogh to take on the Patriots in the divisional round.

Charles doesn't have a history of concussion, so expect him to have a full offseason program and challenge LeSean McCoy for the #1 overall fantasy pick in 2014.
