From Mark Wimer's Monday injury report (Mon Sep 15): Charles suffered an ankle injury on Sunday, and was forced out of the game. Xrays for a break on Sunday were negative, which is an encouraging sign. On Monday, the team announced that Charles has a high ankle sprain which is usually a multi week injury. "It doesn't look to be -- and these things take time -- but it doesn't look to be a real severe one," coach Andy Reid said of Charles' ankle injury, "but it does have the component of a high ankle sprain. What does that mean? We'll see here."

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 1 vs TEN (7 / 19 / 0 rush, 4 / 4 / 15 / 0 rec)

Charles had 3 touches on the team's first drive and only 8 more over the next 56 minutes. The Titans were clearly keying on Charles early in the game and Andy Reid may have outsmarted himself by trying to use Charles as a decoy. He admitted that Charles' 7 carries were a mistake on his part. The offensive line didn't help Charles at all but he still looked good when he got even a little bit of space. It was rare for the first man to take him down, but due to inefficiencies in the blocking he often saw 2-3 defenders before he had a chance to get to the second level.

2014 Week 2 vs DEN (2 / 4 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)

Charles left the game at the 9:29 mark with a high ankle sprain. His leg bent under him and he hobbled off on his own power. No timetable has been given for his return.

Chiefs | Ankle sprain for Jamaal Charles (Sun Sep 14, 08:19 PM) - Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (ankle) suffered a sprained ankle in the Week 2 game against the Denver Broncos, head coach Andy Reid said Sunday, Sept. 14.

Our View: The question is how ready Charles will be to play at Miami next week. Knile Davis's big day had to frustrate Charles owners, and it may cause the Chiefs to be cautious with their offensive MVP because the backup was so productive in a tough divisional matchup. Charles will have an MRI tomorrow according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
