Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles was helped off the field Sunday after suffering a non-contact knee injury against the Bears.

According to head coach Andy Reid, initial reports are that Charles tore his ACL.

Midway through the third quarter, with the Chiefs leading 17–3, Charles went down during a run around the Bears’ 10-yard-line, holding his right knee. The Chiefs immediately ruled him out for the remainder of the game.

Charles rushed 12 times for 58 yards before leaving.

He entered the game with 306 yards and 4 touchdowns on 59 carries for the 1–3 Chiefs.
