It's official, Chiefs RB Charles heads to IR

Daily Journal - [Full Article]

The Chiefs said Monday that they will put running back Jamaal Charles on injured reserve with a left knee injury, meaning he is done for the rest of the season.

Charles was hurt in the first quarter of the Chiefs' 48-3 loss to the Detroit Lions on Sunday. He took an awkward step out of bounds while finishing off a run and immediately grabbed at his knee. Charles had an MRI exam on Monday and Haley said the team decided he would be placed on IR.

Fantasy Impact: 

Obviously Charles will have to be dropped. In keeper leagues, it's a tough call whether or not you put him on an IR spot, hold his roster spot, or just cut ties. He should be able to recover as there hasn't been much wear and tear on his knees to this point and he's just 24-years-old.
