Chiefs HC Andy Reid says RB Jamaal Charles has sprained ankle.

Fantasy Impact: 

According to Jason La Canfora of CBS, it's considered to be mild. Charles hurt the ankle, limped to the sideline, went to the locker room and never returned to the game. Reid apparently gave no other information on the severity, but one has to wonder just how bad it is, even if it's being called "mild," as Charles was likely scheduled for a big workload against Denver. Knile Davis took over and had a huge game for the Chiefs and makes for a must pickup whether you're a Charles owner or simply in need of a RB. Cyrus Gray and DeAnthony Thomas are next up on the depth chart but Davis should see a bulk of the work if Charles is out. The Dolphins and Patriots are next up for the Chiefs and both are favorable matchups against the run. Owners should assume Charles won't be playing Week 3 going into waiver deadlines...
