Report: Jamaal Charles tears ACL, out for season

Earlier today, we noted that Jamaal Charles was carted off in the early stages of the Chiefs getting the tar kicked out of them by the Lions. (Final score? An embarrassing 48-3 whipping at Ford Field.)

CBS Sports' Randy Cross told the guys at Fantasy Football Live that he believed Charles could be lost for the season, and now a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that Charles is likely done for the year after tearing his ACL.

Charles was carted off in the first quarter after taking an awkward step while running out of bounds and eventually had the Lions mascot land on him. He was listed as questionable but never returned to the game, and now it appears he won't return this season.

It's a(nother) tremendous blow to a Chiefs team that couldn't possibly have gotten off on a worse foot in terms of trying to defend their AFC West title -- they've now been blown out by both the Bills and the Lions in the first two weeks of the season while managing to lose three of the best players (Charles, Eric Berry, Tony Moeaki) for the season.

I hate to see a talented and exciting player like Jamaal go out with an injury like that.  Horrible luck.

Holmes, then LJ and now Jamaal. Not sure having a top 3 fantasy RB year after year is a curse, but this season has looked a little curse with the leader on each side of ball going out for the year before the season even got rolling. Just lose them all and draft Luck and this start could be a blessing...

You're not talking about fantasty football are you?  If you don't know why he would have been drafted, you must not have ever drafted a team before.

Anyone who actually looked at the Chiefs knew they weren't going to be very good this year.  I'm not sure why Charles would have been drafted in the first place.

An ACL isn't in the foot, I'm not sure why you think this is a pun?

You, my friend, are a moron....2 quality backs on your bench??  What do you play in, a 5 team league???  If people are smart, they handcuffed Jones to the team, although McCluster looked ok today, also...An injury is an injury.....Can't do anything about it.....

And what Arian Foster said stands true once again.  This guy blew out his knee less than a few hours ago, and you guys are crying fantasy.  Yes, it does suck as I have him in one league (makes sign of cross that I didn't take him more than once).  But as the man said you have to have a contingency plans.  Nothing like having two quality backs on your bench to fill in on bye weeks and strength of schedule.  Now you just have to ride them throughout the season to wherever they take you.  Good RBs can be had all the way into the eighth or ninth round probably.  Wide receivers aren't guaranteed catches or yardage in any give week outside of the elite.  Backs get touches, plain and simple.

Too bad for Charles - I hate to see good players go down for the season.  I lost by 2 this week but should survive as I have Beanie Wells as insurance.  Hate to cash in that insurance policy so soon!
