No Worries: Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles Is 'Fine' After Injury In Eagles Game

Good news, Kansas City Chiefs fans: RB Jamaal Charles is "fine" after leaving Friday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles with some sort of injury.

Per ESPN's Adam Schefter:

All those tweets about Chiefs RB Jamal Charles? Charles just landed awkwardly on his funny bone last night. He is fine. Draft away.

"Draft away" is a reference to fantasy football where Charles is a popular man.

Charles went down late in the first half after catching a 20-yard pass from Matt Cassel. He didn't return to the game and made a few folks worry as the trainers looked at him holding his arm. Kent Babb of the Kansas City Star reports that Charles did have his shoulder looked at -- the same one he had surgery on over the offseason -- and iced after the game.

We'll see if it limits him in practice next week but it appears he's OK for the long-term.
