Not a great game for anyone involved in the Chiefs - Eagles game on Friday night -- Kevin Kolb's first half was "meh" to say the least, the Chiefs appeared turnover prone, and Jamaal Charles, Trent Cole and DeSean Jackson left the game with an injury.
Jackson caught a four-yard screen pass from Kevin Kolb on the Eagles' first play from scrimmage (which followed a Charles fumble that was recovered by Cole) and got absolutely rocked by rookie safety Eric Berry. It was one of those hits where you see the ballcarrier headed to the ground, see a red flash come flying and then hear a noise on the television that creates a reaction loud enough to make the people in the other room wonder what you accidentally stabbed yourself with.
Jackson actually left with an "upper back injury " -- and will not return -- but it probably has something to do with Berry compressing his spine -- when you hear the hit tomorrow on replay, you'll know what I'm talking about.
Cole left later and while he won't return, the X-rays on his ankle were negative, which is certainly good news for the Eagles.
The Chiefs got even better news: according to Josh Looney of Chiefs Insider , Charles -- who hurt his elbow in what our own Dave Richard referred to as a "serious" looking injury -- is "back out and in full uniform on sidelines" to begin the second half.
So, good for the Chiefs, temporarily bad for the Eagles, although there's always the chance that neither injury ends up being too serious. We'll keep you updated as we hear more.
