Report: Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles placed on IR, out at least eight weeks
The Kansas City Chiefs have placed running back Jamaal Charles on injured reserve, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
He is expected to be out at least eight weeks, according to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport.
Charles returned from knee surgery in which he repaired a torn knee ligament.
In his first game back on Oct. 11, he carried the ball 11 times and played 15 snaps against the Oakland Raiders last month. He did not play against the Saints on Oct. 23 due to knee swelling. He was also out for the Chief's most recent game against the Indianapolis Colts.
Last year, he rushed for 364 yards and added another 177 yards off passes to go along with his five touchdowns in 4.5 games before tearing his ACL.
On Monday, Charles paid a visit to orthopedic surgeon James Andrews before he was placed on the IR.
Spencer Ware has filled in for Charles at running back but sustained a concussion on Sunday. SI's Michael Beller listed Charles as one of the top players for fantasy football owners to drop after Week 8.
