Fantasy stud Jamaal Charles heads to locker room

Sam Greenwood

Jamaal Charles went to the locker room in the second half of Sunday's game. We break down the fantasy implications.

Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles suffered a quad injury in the second half of Sunday's game against the Jaguars. He is questionable to return.

With the Chiefs up big in the fourth quarter, Charles is likely done for the day. If so, he will finish with a total of 77 rushing yards and 23 receiving yards on three receptions.

Fantasy impact: It didn't look too bad and the team will likely give him an MRI to check for a strain. He had a foot injury in the preseason, so this injury is unrelated.

Knile Davis had a productive August and would likely step in to get most of the carries. Davis is the team's kick returner and not a very big guy, so he's unlikely to assume a role as featured back even with Charles out of the lineup. Cyrus Gray is also in the mix for carries.

Charles owners, don't panic just yet.
