Jackie Battle Goes Down For Kansas City Chiefs With Possible Concussion

Jackie Battle, the Chiefs surprise at running back this season after losing Jamaal Charles for the year, is now out of the game against the Denver Broncos this afternoon after suffering a possible concussion in the third quarter. The Chiefs running back has provided a decent point of balance in the running game, but now Matt Cassel is obviously going to have to air it out to his receivers in order to get the Chiefs the lead.

For the day, Battle has 7 carries for 54 yards but the league has come down hard on returning to games after head injuries, so it’s hard to tell whether KC will get Battle back on the field. For now, expect Cassel to open the passing game and challenge Denver’s secondary with Steve Breaston, Dwayne Bowe and Jon Baldwin.
