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 stayed the hell away.  I had 11th pick of 12.

Got Calvin Johnson and Andre Johnson consecutively.

My running backs ended up being Ryan Matthews and Mark Ingram - and I got Thomas as well.

this is why you always draft heavy on running backs for this very reason. wr's are a dime a dozen.

It really stinks that KC'S season is already over before it really began..Two key injuries in Moeaki, Berry, and now Charles means for a long, really long season for the Chiefs....Try again next year guys.

Naw, I don't trust KC Chiefs. I highly recommend y'all not to draft any KC players, I believe there is some kind of a "curse" in KC.
